Leonard Model 39-5 Fly Rod 7'6" 2/2 #5


A nice HL Leonard Model 39-5 fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tip and built for a #5 line. Serial #2401 which dates the rod to 1974. 3.7 ounces. The action is a tad on the slowish side of medium. Lightly used, with some soiling to the grip and a bit of cosmetic cracking at the ferrule wraps but little wear to the interior of the guides (and none on one tip). Wrapped 326 red with a green and red band at the keeper and male ferrules. The varnish is good but typical of the brush coat technique. The ferrules are polished bright and the fit is nice and tight. The grip is 5 1/2" inches and is styled to the blunt side of a medium cigar. The reel seat is a downlocking aluminum screwlock with the square threads over a butternut spacer. The full nickel silver pocket cap is stamped "The HL Leonard Rod co,  Makers" in a cartouche. The rod packs into a yellow poplin bag with a stiffener. The aluminum tube with brass hardware is original and has the Leonard data sticker on it in good condition.

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.

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.
