As some of you know, I was diagnosed with an end-stage terminal disease. To keep my sanity, I intensified my collecting of vintage fishing equipment and related items as well as first edition books and artwork. I have information and experience.

About 5 years ago, I had the pleasure of having my parents live with my wife and me. My parents are now with my sister and my wife and I are living full time on the Klamath River and she is hinting that our shack needs to be repaired!

Jim's love for bamboo and history is evident in this gorgeous Leonard restoration! Please check out his website. His rods are gorgeous and I fish my Hidys to this day! This rod is a 3 piece 9' Leonard Model 45.

All sections are full and equal with beautiful original guides restored to original including the agate guide. The bamboo is smooth with a silken finish.

The half well cork handle is new and hand-made. Leonard describes this rod as suitable for general stream angling and also for Maine and Canada angling where rivers are not swift.

After observing the markings on the rod, it is most likely pre-1924. In addition to being a wonderful 5wt (actually 4 - 6 wt), this rod is perfect for high-sticking.

The Leonard rod comes with a period rod sack. A great rod for the true Leonard fan!
