Hardy 'SILEX' No. 2 Fishing Reel.
A good Hardy 4 1/2 inch fishing reel ' THE 'SILEX' No. 2'. This reel has two horn type handles made from plastic, a brass foot, brake handle for single-handed casting, a tension screw and a sprung lever drum release catch. On the back plate it is engraved, 'HARDY BROS Ltd, ALNWICK, ENGLAND.' with 'THE 'SILEX' No.2, HARDY's PAT. No.2206'.

The Silex was patented at the end of 1896. It was with this reel, and the perfect, that helped Hardy's become one of the top manufacturers. Anglers readily went for the Silex over normal wooden starback reels because of the supreme casting performances it gave. The Silex was made from 1896 to 1911. The Silex No. 2 was a natural progression and was made from 1911 until 1921.
Very good and original.
