Leonard, H.L. -- Model 38L Pre-Fire Bamboo Rod

For sale here is a 7’0” 2/2 H.L. Leonard Model 38L Baby Catskill, 1.75 oz. for a 2wt. line. Pre-fire rod with original mint tag which reads: “Baby Cats, 7 Feet, 1 ¾ Ounces, No. 38L”. Size 9 ferrule with original ferrule plug. Translucent tan wraps in fine condition (one snake guide has been re-wrapped on one of the tip sections). Baby Catskill slide band reel seat with Leonard stamped butt cap and Butternut spacer. Original bag with mint tag & tube. A very rare model in near mint, possibly un-fished condition. This is a museum quality rod recently made available from the estate of the original owner.

This rod and the newly listed Model 50DF are the two finest pieces from what was perhaps the largest private Leonard collection in the US.
