Leonard, H.L. – Duracane 806

  • For your consideration is an H.L. Leonard Duracane 806 bamboo fly rod This is an 8’ 0” 2/2 5/6 wt., weighing 4.25 oz. SN 3282. All sections are full-length and straight.

    The rod consists of lightly tempered bamboo with burgundy wraps tipped black. The 6-inch cigar grip has mild ridging. Down-locking black hardware over wood spacer. Size 13 ferrule with a perfect fit. In my hand, the action is on the medium side of medium-fast with a full progressive feeling into the lower butt section. This rod feels surprisingly light in hand compared to most 6 weight rods. I feel it would also fish a 5 weight line for some. In my opinion, Duracane models continue to be one of the most underrated tapers and one of the best buys. Original bag with stiffener and labeled tube.
