A Classic Look
The Bickersteth Classic I and Classic II Salmon Reels and the Bickersteth Classic Trout Reel are Manufactured in the UK to a timeless design, superbly engineered and feature a floral etched scroll pattern on the front and back plates. They are finished off with brass reel foot and handle.
A simple "click and pawl" ratchet makes a very loud click! The spool is lightly "dimpled" to allow for gentle palming and although there is no modern drag system, the benefit of a small arbour and shallow spindle means that a when a fish runs there is a smooth noticeable resistance as the line leaves the reel.
The Classic II weighs 362gms/12.7oz and is capable of holding 75 yards of backing with a 65' head 10/11 spey line or 100 yards of backing with a 9/10wt 55' head spey line. The outside diameter is 110mm and the width is 51mm. The Classic I has an 8/10wt line, and the Classc Trout is 5/7wt. All reels are supplied in a leather and wool lined case.
