Leonard Model 50 Fly Rod 8' 3/2 #5/6


A HL Leonard bamboo fly rod, model 50-5 or 50-6, 8', 3-piece, 2-tip, built for a #5 or #6 line. This is a prefire rod with no serial number. Medium fast action. Full original condition, used modestly, with some minor wear to the inner part of the snake guides. Wheatstraw cane done in a three up node pattern. High arch paddlefoot snake guides. The main wraps are light yellow-tan with maroon edges at the keeper and male ferrules. No stamp on the butt female. The ferrule fits are excellent and the rod is straight. The grip is 5" long and shaped to a medium cigar profile. The grip has been cleaned leaving it slightly ridged. The reel seat is an aluminum square thread downlock with a butternut spacer and a nickel silver pocket cap. The stamp reads "The Leonard Rod, HL Leonard Rod Co, Makers" in a cartouche and underneath "Reg Us Pat Off". Leonard 50's in this kind of good condition are becoming increasingly rare. Original gray poplin bag and original aluminum and brass tube.

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.
