Leonard DF50 Fly Rod 8' 3/2 #6

A nice Leonard DF50 fly rod, 8' 3-piece, 2-tip for a #6 line. All original and an excellent example of the Leonard Rod Company artistry at that period. Medium, very smooth action. Good ferrule fits. Hand brushed finish. Serial #2549. Black stripping guide and black snake guides with slight amount of brassing inside the guide. This indicates very little use. Wraps are of course red with green and red edges at the keeper and male ferrule. 12 cork cigar grip (approximately 6"). Square thread downlocking screwlock with a nickel silver pocket cap, the latter of which has the Leonard period logo stamp in the cartouche. Varnished butternut spacer. Rod bag and aluminum tube with brass bottom and top. Tube sports the red Leonard Midland Park, NJ ID sticker. The sticker indicates the rod weight at 4 ounces.

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.
