For your consideration is an original H.L. Leonard Model 37H bamboo fly rod. This is a 6' 6" 2/2 for a 3 or 4-weight line weighing 2.30 ounces. All sections are full-length and straight.
This consists of straw-colored cane with crimson wraps and a handsome swelled butt. The grip measures 5 inches with a cap and ring over mortised butternut wood spacer. The tips mic at 0.060 and 061. The Swiss-style ferrule is size 10. In my hand, the action is on the medium side of medium-fast and is delightful. This is a post-fire rod with the HLL logo roll stamped on the butt cap. It is sans serial number making this a pre-1969 made rod. Appears the tube cap is a replacement.
This rod comes from an extraordinary collection of Leonard rods and has never been fished.
