Leonard Hunt 48-4 Fly Rod 7' 3/2 #4


A nice Leonard 48-4 fly rod, 7', 3-piece, 2-tip, built for a #4 line. Hunt model. Lightly used condition with a medium to DF action. This rod is post-Maxwell, as there is no writing on the shaft, no serial # or 48-4 inked anywhere. Also, the hardware is oxidized jet black rather than pewter which was consistent with the Larry Foster period following Maxwell. Everything else is correct - hardware, check, ferrules, reel seat, cap and ring, and even the brass cap tube. Mirrored tips, flamed cane with 3 up node pattern. The wraps are the correct plum/red color.  Super varnish. 10 cork 5" slim cigar grip. The varnished mortised reel seat is stained curly maple. Correct cap and ring is stamped "H.L. Leonard Rod Co., The Rod Maker, since 1869". A small note is that the tips are ever so slightly longer than the mid and the tip-tops are the larger hoop variety.

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.
