description: In the next few weeks I'll be selling a few reel for Diane Powell Walton Powell's widow. This reel happened to be Walts favorite reel as noted in the providence. Vintage Thompson model 100 Fly Reel circa 1950's made in San Francisco CA. in "E" plus condition with 99.9% of it's wonderful black enamel finish with metal oval line guard, brass reel foot is untouched! Has very small mark to the rim and very very light rub marks to the reel face. This is one of the nicest Thompson model 100's I have sold. The reels claim to fame is having one of the best drag systems on a US production reel. What a classic reel good for another lifetime and I'm sure Walt would have wanted it to go to a good home and continued to be fished. I'm sure lot's of great history on this reel. If they could only talk! The weight is 7ozs and is RHW only.
