H.L. LEONARD MODEL 50 BAMBOO FLY ROD...SOLD

This in an early post-fire model 50, serial number 430. Features down locking reel seat over butternut spacer, Leonard cigar grip, Fuji stripper, red silk tipped black, bright snakes, original bag and tube. The ferrules are 15+/64" and 10/64"; the rod weighs 3 3/4 ounces on my scale. Condition is excellent with good hardware, some wear to the cork and reel seat spacer, tight ferrules, and all wraps and guides fine. The varnish shows evidence of recent polishing so the finish is clean and bright. This rod casts a 5wt line very well. It would handle a 4wt or a 6wt in a pinch.
