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


An HL Leonard model 39-5 bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #5 line. Serial #1936 with a manufacture date of 1974. 3.8 ounces. Excellent used condition with some modest cosmetic cracking at the ferrule wraps and wear to the inner snake guides. Medium action with what feels to me like a faster butt and more moderate tips. Blonde oven temper cane done in a three up node pattern. The wraps are 326 red with additional edges of green and maroon at the keeper and male ferrules. The step ferrules are polished and the fit is tight. The cork grip is 5 1/2" long and shaped to a medium-to-blunt cigar profile. The reel seat is a square thread aluminum downlock with a butternut spacer and a nickel silver pocket cap stamped "The HL Leonard Rod Co, Makers". The bag is yellow poplin with a stiffener sewn by Bob Taylor's mom. The aluminum tube has brass fittings and the data sticker 95% intact.

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.
