    My C.F.O. III - 4/21/2013

    For over 20 years my C.F.O. III fishing with me. It’s light, smooth, but also extremely tough. You can fight big trout or elegant grayling with the same pleasant sensations. Awaiting to hatch in a chalk stream, there is no better company of a bamboo rod and my CFO III.

    Won Me Over - 11/3/2012
    By: from Carluke Scotland

    What a lovely reel this turned out to be, truthfully I didnt expect to find myself enjoying this reel as much as I have. Aesthetically pleasing it made me smile as soon as I opened the box, better still it sounds and feels "just right" had me grinning from ear to ear the whole day I was fishing with it. Its safely tucked away now in its lambswool case untill next season where no doubt it will charm me once again with its song. Future classic it may well be but its also a lovely reel to fish with and safely saw me 6 lovely late season trout to the bank on a local stream, cant ask for more than that ;)

    CFO 111 Uk 30 review - 3/5/2012

    As a classic tackle collector I purchased two of these reels made by Hardy's England. They are well made but expensive but are superb for modern very lightweight graphite rods. My advice, buy one while you can !!
