Leonard, H.L. – 9' 0" 6wt

  • For your consideration is an H.L. Leonard bamboo fly rod. This is a 9' 0" three-piece for a 6 weight line weighing 5.45 ounces. All sections are straight and full length.

    This consists of straw-colored cane with red wraps tipped black and has a handsome red and white variegated agate. The grip measures 6 inches in length and has a consistent texture from mild ridging. The cap is stamped "The Leonard Rod, H.L. Leonard Rod Co. Makers, Reg. US Pat Off" dating this between 1923 and 1964. In my hand, the action is medium fast. The rod has been refinished. The decorative wraps above the hook keeper lack consistent spacing and a couple of the two turn winds have separation between the wraps. One end of the mid section is slightly darker on some flats but has the same node spacing and construction as the other pieces.
