HL Leonard Hunt Bamboo Fly Rod 7' 2/2 #4


An HL Leonard model 38-4M bamboo fly rod, 7', 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #4 line. The rod weighs 3.2 ounces on my scale. Serial #102 from the Brian McGrath era. Hunt model with a medium crisp DF action. The rod has seen very light use with some brassing to the inner guides and a hit of hand soiling to the grip. Flamed cane done in a three up node pattern. Excellent varnish. Maroon main wraps with a #8 SRMC stripper and bronze snakes. Large hoop tip top. The step ferrules are oxidized jet black. The grip is 4 1/2" long and shaped to a medium cigar profile. Mortised Koa slide band reel seat with an black oxidized cap and ring. There is some edgewear to the cap and ring oxidation. "HL Leonard Rod Co / The Rod Maker / Since 1869" stamped on the hardware. The rod packs into a dark blue rod bag and brass appointed rod tube fittings with HLL engraved on the top. 

Shipping Information
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.
Other Terms
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.
