Leonard, H.L. – Model 47-3

  • For your consideration is a rare H.L. Leonard 47-3. This is a 6' 7" 3/2 3wt. weighing 2 1/2 oz. SN 99112. The tips average a delicate 0.0475". This is in new, unfished condition.

    Executed in the modern Catskills tradition, this unused rod features bright red wraps with offset red tipping, black guides and tip tops with bright nickel silver Swiss-style size 12 and 8 ferrules. Diminutive cigar grip measures 4 7/8". Nickel silver stamped butt cap and sliding band over a beautifully modeled curly maple spacer, which has a 3D effect. The reel seat can accommodate reels with feet no more than 2 1/4" long and very thin metal. The rod has a delicate dry fly action. The dapper swelled butt keeps the action in the upper portion of the rod. The original blue bag with tag and engraved brass cap completes this light rod.
