The British brand Hardy fly fishing has over 140 years of history in the world of fishing.
Experience and innovation from Alnwick (England) has created a whole set of unique fly rods and fly fishing equipment: Fly rods Sintrix, Zephrus, Wraith Shadow, Jet, fly reels... In our Europe fly fishing shop in Spain you can find award-winning fishing rods and accessories at a good price. In 1872, a young man called William Hardy set up shop as a gunsmith in Alnwick, Northumberland, and that might very well have been the end of the story had not the great engineering magnate Lord Armstrong persuaded him to take his brother John James into partnership. The Hardy brothers advertised themselves as ‘gunsmiths, whitesmiths and cutlers', although the guns they sold were actually made in Birmingham. To begin with the brothers bought in most of the tackle they sold, their flyreels for example, coming from Malloch. However, as the firm expanded, Hardys found themselves with a reputation for superior quality tackle to defend and realised that they could hardly continue to depend on products made by competitors, so in 1891, after three years of patient development, they launched a fly reel which became their most famous product, the Perfect. It was an instant success and the firm has built it, with occasional interruptions, right up to the present day, a feat that no other tackle manufacturer can even begin to challenge. Hardy is part of big brands like Simms Europe or Fishpond Europe and this is a value to be taken into account.
