HL Leonard Fly Rod 7'6" 3/2 #4


A nice HL Leonard bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 3-piece, 2-tips, built for what feels to me like a #4 line. Serial #2525. 3.6 ounces. Lightly used in near mint condition. Medium action. 1974 or 1975 manufacture date. The grip has been cleaned but the guides have just the start of some brassing from use. Wheatstraw color cane with red wraps. Keeper one flat right. Serial # lettered one flat left. Excellent varnish for the period. Wrapped 326 red with a band of green and then red at the keeper and the male ferrules. The grip is 5 1/2" with a medium cigar profile. Square thread downlocking screw lock. Varnished butternut spacer with a nickel silver pocket cap stamped "HLL, HL Leonard Rod Co, Makers" in a cartouche. The rod is packed in a typical-for-the-period yellow Leonard cloth bag. Aluminum tube that I suspect is a later factory replacement. Brass hardware and top is stamped with the Leonard logo on the collar.

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.
