Leonard Salmon Rod 9'9" 3/2 #7

A handsome 9'9" Leonard salmon rod "the Tournament" 3pc, 2T #7 line 8oz. Medium action, red wraps, pre-fire. Very good condition except for one snake at the top of the butt needs a re- wrap. Orange band at ferrules and keeper. Brush coat varnish but a remarkably good job for that. Only a few bubbles and embedded brush hairs. Ferrules have the potbelly waist but no patent date. This rod could not have been fished much -- a few of the spots where varnish collected in the guides has not worn off. Large medium blunt cigar grip and a beautiful all nickel silver reel seat with soldered rail notched for the downlocking screw ring. "Tournament" is stamped just above the pocket cap. The Leonard cartouche is stamped with "The Leonard Rod, H.L.Leonard Rod Co, Makers". Knurled cap with the "target" pops out to accept a fighting butt with a large red rubber button. A venerable old lady I say. Comes with a grey poplin bag with a pendant bag for the fighting butt. Leonard hanging tag. Plastic tube.
