Very Early 10' H.L. Leonard "Bangor, ME" Marked Fly Rod

<< Back to Vintage Rods & Reels

Very rarely seen 1870's H.L. Leonard 10' 3pc 1 tip fly rod.

Rod has full nickel silver seat with "H.L. Leonard Maker Bangor, ME" stamp.

Rod is full length, but the ferrules appear to have been replaced.

Also the rod has English twist guides which leads me to believe the rod was refinished at some point, very very long ago.

Has a previous owner's name, Weare C. Little written on shaft as well as stamped into seat in very tiny lettering.

Rattan grip, Jasper silk with Red tipping, Agate stripping guide.

Comes with wood form case.

Item #9900 Very Good Condition SOLD
