HL Leonard Model 87 Dry Fly Salmon Rod 9'6" 3/2


For sale here is a pre-fire H.L. Leonard Model 87 9'6" 3/2 Dry Fly Salmon rod. The rod is in excellent refinished condition. All sections are full length and straight. One tip-top appears to have been replaced or at least reblued as it does not match the wear of its counterpart. Chinese red wraps with gold tipping on the ferrule wrap of one tip and black on the other (added later by the refinisher). Mildly swelled butt. Cigar grip 6 1/8" in length with moderate soiling. The grip is void of any ridging or other defects. Aluminum screw-lock reel seat that reads "Special Tournament" on the backside of the spacer. The seat function as it should and is free of damage. The removable nickel silver butt cap features a bull's eye pattern with a "3" in the middle. The fighting butt is 4 3/4" in length with soiling comparable to the grip. The ferrules are size 13/64 and 20/64 with a great fit. The rod weighs 11.25 oz. with the fighting butt, and 8.30 oz. without. Medium-fast action. The rod includes the original bag with hang tag and a separate sleeve for the fighting butt and the original tube with brass fittings.
