George Guba "Leonard 39-5" Model Bamboo Fly Rod 7'6" 2/2 #5


A George Guba "Leonard 39-5" Model Bamboo Fly Rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tips, built for a #5 line. 3.6 ounces. Looks to be in mint condition with no wear to the inner guides or any other signs of use that I could find. Medium fast to fast action. The cane is done in a light flame, about two shades lighter than the Leonard "Hunt" models. The shaft is lettered "L.H. #39 7 1/2" 5W, by George Guba '05", and then the original owner's name. 3 up node pattern configuration but no swell. The rod is wrapped in an orange-red color similar to the Chinese red and color preserved. At some of the guide feet there has been some varnish bleedthrough darkening the wrap. Agate stripper and dark snake guides. The step ferrules are oxidized and one tip ferrule I would consider a tiny loose fitting. 5 1/2" medium cigar grip. The reel seat is a late model Leonard stamped oxidized cap and ring, and the wood is an excellent tiger maple. Both tips need a tiny bit of straightening. Khaki colored bag with a frost aluminum tube with a brass 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.
