An old Stream Fly reel and copper cast tin came my way. It was interesting to find out F. Steans and Coy was the original Alexto Sports from the 1930's. The F. Steans and Coy and the Stream Fly were basically NZ copies of the Hardy Perfect. Rumour has it the maker was an ex-Hardy's employee. He must have produced quite a number of these before "supposedly" being put out of business by copyright laws.
