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


A nice HL Leonard Model 39 bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #5 line. Serial #3447 which puts the date of manufacture around 1976. 3.6 ounces. Medium, full flexing action. This rod shows modest use with some hand soiling to the grip but all sections are nice and straight. Wheatstraw color cane done in a three up node pattern. Nice varnish. Light brown main wraps with dark brown edges and dark brown at the keeper, ferrules, and tip tops. The stripper is ceramic and the snake guides are chrome. The step ferrules are polished bright. The grip is 5 1/2" long and turned to a medium cigar profile. The seat is a downlocking screwlock of aluminum with a butternut insert and a nickel silver pocket cap. The stamp reads "The Leonard Rod, HL Leonard Rod Co" in a cartouche. The rod packs into a bag and Leonard tube.
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.
