The original Bougle was last produced in 1939, and many collectors believe the reel reached both its functional and aesthetic apex, even though few reels were produced that year. Now, the 1939 Bougle Heritage Reel Series pays homage to those rare originals. These reels feature the time tested Mark II check mechanism and are finished with a dark gun metal anodization, reminiscent of the original.
