For sale here is a H.L. Leonard Hunt Model 41-5 bamboo rod -- 8 1/2' 2/2 5wt. Serial no. 81276. The rod remains in original near mint condition with some very light wear around the butt cap.
The rod featured beautiful moderately tempered cane with bright red wraps and blued hardware throughout. The tips are numbered for convenience. Handsome swelled butt. Nickel silver checks. Cigar grip measuring 6" in length with the original plastic still in place. Classic cap and ring reel seat over a mortised maple spacer. The step-down ferrules have a perfect fit.
