HL Leonard 38L Fly Rod 7' 2/1 #3


A HL Leonard model 38L bamboo fly rod, 7', 2-piece, 1-tip, built for a #3 line. Serial #8390 which puts the date of manufacture at 1983. 2.8 ounces. Lawn cast or very lightly used condition. Faint soiling to the grip and minimal brassing to the snake guides. Delicate semi full flexing action. Wheatstraw cane done in a three up node pattern. Olive main wraps with maroon edges at the keeper and male ferrules. The step ferrules are polished bright as well as the cap and ring. The grip is 4 3/4" long and shaped to a medium cigar. The snake guides are black. The cap and ring seat is a varnished and flatted butternut with a lip to meet the cork. The die stamp on the butt cap is the modern Leonard "The Rod Makers, Since 1869" version in a cartouche. The yellow cloth rod bag has two tip compartments and fits into a leather rod tube with a carrying strap.

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.
