Hardy - The Viscount 140

The Viscount 140, Made by Hardy Bros Ltd England, 3.5" reel. Made from light alloy and suited as a trout fly reel for one of my cane rods. Made in the 1970's. Giving the impression that it was cheaply manufactured. Part of a series of reels: the 130, 140, and 150. The foot and body are moulded together; There is a plastic check and spring, plastic adjustment knob and plastic crown on the rear.
