Mullocks Auction

Mullocks next auction will take place at the Clive Pavillion Ludlow on Saturday 20th March with 780 lots of tackle.

I was speaking to a friend recently who was looking to collect something “different”, well he could start with a Walker Bampton Wallace Watson reel. These unusual reels sell for anything between £200 and £300 and I think there are only three models to collect.

Mullocks Auction Ludlow.

Saturday 11th July will see the summer auction of fishing tackle at Mullocks Auction at the Clive Pavilion Ludlow. This sale is normally characterised by the large quantity of good usable fishing tackle. This time we have some  classic reels with some high price tags to accompany them.

Hardy Bougle 1912 Model

Amongst which is the two Hardy Bougles, one of my favourite Hardy reels which I have had the pleasure of using in the past. 

Another fine reel is the Hardy Houghton in alloy, some people think that the Houghton was first sold as a brass faced 2 5/8 inch model only but this reel was originally all brass and later models being alloy. It’s the size which dictates the Houghton- 2 5/8 inch.
