A nice Leonard model 39-5 bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tips, and built for a #5 line. This is the Standard model with intermediate signature wraps. Serial #81254 with a manufacture date of 1981 during the Maxwell period. Medium fast DF action. Light use with some grip soiling and a small 1/8" overwrap between the second and third snake guide down from the top, which I suspect was due to a hook dig. The cane is oven tempered to a blond wheatstraw color with a three up node pattern. The wraps are red with a carbide stripper and black stainless guides. The step ferrules are polished. The grip is 5 1/2" long and shaped to a slim cigar with some light soiling as mentioned. The reel seat spacer is a varnished mortised curly maple with a polished nickel silver cap and ring. "HL Leonard Rod Co, The Maker, Since 1869" stamped on it. Tan bag, and aluminum tube with Leonard brass hardware.
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
