HL Leonard Model 41 (Catskill) Bamboo Rod (pre-fire) 8' 3/2 #3
For sale here is a pre-fire HL Leonard Model 41 bamboo rod, a super rare model with very fine tips as compared to the more typical Model 40. 8' 3/2 for a 3 weight line. Most likely from the 1930s-1940s era. The rod weighs 3 1/4 oz. and remains in very good condition with original bag and tube. All sections are full-length. Of the two tips one has a set in it. All other sections are adequately straight. Gorgeous cap and ring reel seat over butternut spacer. The original grip is in fine shape. The rod has full intermediate wraps. The ferrules are 14/64 and 9/64 and the ferrule fit is good. This remains a very nice and hard to find pre-fire Catskill Leonard rod with a very pleasant medium slow action.
