H.L. Leonard 8′ Bamboo Fly Rod

H.L. Leonard 8′ Bamboo Fly Rod

$800.00

This is a 2/2 model 40 post fire Leonard, red wrapped, serial number 1993. Features down locking reel seat over butternut, floppy-ring hook keeper, Mildrum stripper, blued steel snakes, truncated NS ferrule, original bag and marked tube. Rod weighs 4 ounces, as marked, and has a 13/64″ ferrule. Condition is fine with some marks on the reel seat spacer, soiling on the cork. The finish is excellent, wraps are excellent, ferrule fit is excellent. The Leonard 40 has a fine progressive action with an endearing feel in the hand. Superb all-around trout rod for dries or sub-surface flies. Leonard marked this rod for a 6wt. I would try it with a 5wt as well. This is a one-owner rod with complete provenance available. The original retailer’s price tag is on the tube.
