Leonard Classic Taper Models


The Leonard rods I have chosen to build all have one characteristic in common - they are excellent dry fly rods with a light tippy feel. It is a unique feel that has captivated anglers for a century.


My Leonard taper rods are available in two models, the Blond standard series and a flamed Hunt series. the Hunt rods were initially a different set of tapers for Leonard but eventually changed into a cosmetic difference in the rods. I have maintained the cosmetic standard.


Standard Pattern: Blond cane wrapped in red, bright Leonard style ferrules and bright down lock nickel silver slide band or screwlock reelseat hardware over a butternut filler and a cigar grip.


Hunt Pattern: Flamed cane wrapped in dark red, blued Leonard style ferrules, blued down lock nickel silver slide band hardware or bright Leonard style screwlock hardware over a walnut filler and a cigar grip.


Leonard 'Tan Wrap' - I have a very limited supply of the original thread used for these pre fire Leonard rods. Add $100
