Leonard Model 39H Fly Rod 7'6" 2/2 #5/6


An HL Leonard model 39H fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, built for a #5 or #6 line. Serial #365. 3.8 ounces. Fair condition. On the faster side of medium. The grip has soiling, the varnish has been retouched, and one wrap has been recoated with something that I can't determine. There is a clear wrap below the tip top on one top. Some wear to the guides. 1968 manufacture date is my guess. The ferrule fits are good, the rod comes with a ferrule plug and is nice and straight. Blonde cane wrapped red with an extra edge of green and red at the keeper and male ferrule. The grip is a slim cigar 5 1/2" long. The reel seat is a downlocking screw lock with square thread of aluminum and the pocket cap is nickel silver. The stamp reads: "HLL, H L Leonard Rod Co, Makers" and the spacer wood is butternut. The bag is an orange rust color replacement but the tube is original with the brass top and bottom.

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.
