Photographs by Per Brandin
Leonard model #38



H.L. Leonard model #38; from the post-fire Leonard period of the late 1970's, this 7 ft., 2 pc. / 2 tip rod remains in essentially mint, unused condition. It has a down-locking aluminum reelseat over butternut spacer and chrome guides with the more modern stripping guide in use at this period. Comes in original bag (with stiffener) and fancy leather rod tube. $1600



Bogart Banty



Chris Bogart one piece 'banty' 5 ft 4wt. fly rod in new, unused condition. Comes with rod bag in pvc tube. Perfect rod for the purist stalking brookies on small steams. $995






Orvis special mini-salmon rod. This is a 2 pc. / 1 tip rod which measures just over 5 feet in length and reads "Orvis Impregnated" / "Salmon" / August 3, 1966 / "George Reed" around the rod shaft above the grip. Serial number is #44209. There must have been a craze for a while to fish really small rods for salmon, probably driven by the exploits of Lee Wulff; in the Atlantic Salmon Journal Summer 2010 there is an article about a 4'4" Hardy rod called the 'Phantom' which was used as a salmon rod. This rod remains essentially straight and in excellent used condition. It come in what appears to be the original bag and black aluminum tube. $450

Catskill Legend



Thomas & Thomas 'Catskill Legend' commemorative rod; 8 ft., 3 pc. / 2 tips for #5 line.

Wraps are golden with light brown tipping and full intermediates throughout and the ferrules are fancy Swiss style. Grip still has plastic on the cork. This rod remains in essentially mint, as built condition and comes in original bag and tube. $2,350



Sage Graphite III



Sage Graphite III; #7 line; 8'9"; 2 pc. / 1 tip; "10th Anniversary Model". This rod appears to be in new, unused, as issued condition and comes in original bag and fancy tooled leather tube which should be worth the price alone. $225

Reelseat is very highly figured hardwood with cap and band. $850
