Ari’t Hart 20 October 1934 — 16 July 2021

, , , ,

Ari T. Hart fly reel, 1990, Museum of Modern Art, New York.

I have yet to find a published obituary but it was reported that Ari T. Hart, the renowned Dutch designer of modernist fly reels and fly tying vises, passed away July 16th.

I’ve owned several of his reels and, despite my normally reactionary tastes, admired his work. His reels were strikingly modern and original in form, beautiful, and effective in operation. There is no one like him. He will be missed.

I own several ATH Reels and I think I’m a Lucky man. Somtimes I use one and each time it is a very great pleasure.


what beautiful objects. jewels.
the flies, too. and split bamboo rods.

I have bought one occasionally only to hold, admire, and own for a spell.

watches too, and precision tools. these I keep and use.

miniature radial RC aircraft engines- gems.
