An unusual HL Leonard fly rod, 8', 1-piece, built for what feels to me like a #4. 3.9 ounces. A very scarce model. Delicate, medium fast action. Fair condition as it has been unprofessionally rewrapped and the based of the swell has had either a slight delamination problem or was not glued up properly, though it seems solid now. Pre-fire. The varnish work looks to be original. Keeper one flat right. The grip is 5 1/2" long in a medium blunt cigar. The reel seat is a butternut spacer with some circular damage to the varnish. Downlocking screw lock with a nickel silver pocket cap bearing the stamp "The Leonard Rod, HL Leonard Rod Co, Makers" in a cartouche, and below that "Reg US Pat Off". The upper part of the tip could use some minor straightening. The white linen bag has the original hang tag but it is illegible. The aluminum tube has a swaged on pocket for the grip and has a brass collar and top.
Please note that due to the length of this rod there may be a surcharge for shipment.
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.
