Rare Redbone Seamaster Masterpiece Mark II Reel


With bright green finish, a serial No.2 reel that is marked "Seamaster - Dual Mode" on the under the handle drag wheel and "Seamaster - Catch the Cure - No.2" on the tail plate. Beginning in 1988, Gary and Susan Ellis began the Redbone Celebrity Tournament Series to help the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, with the help of their friends, including legendary hitter Ted Williams. The inaugural tournament found guides, anglers, and celebrities from film and sports teaming up on thirty-three boats to fish for redfish and bonefish. From that tournament came the name "Redbone". A set of two Dual Mode fly reels (the other was a Mark III) were donated by Seamaster to help support the Foundation. Housed in a walnut presentation box with black drawstring bag that has matching green cord, in new condition and set for right hand wind.
