An HL Leonard Model 50-6 bamboo fly rod, 8', 3-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #5 line. Serial #81145 with a 1981 manufacture date. Fast DF action.

The step ferrules are polished bright and the rod sports a carbide stripper and black snake guides. The rod weighs 4.7 ounces. The cork grip is 6" and turned to a slim cigar profile. The reel seat is a mortised striped maple with a bright cap and ring. The butt cap stamp reads "HL Leonard Rod Co / The Rod Maker / Since 1869".

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.
