H.L. Leonard Custom Fly Rod

AMFF Trustee Emeritus Jim Hardman donated this rare Leonard rod to our permanent collection. This 10-foot Calcutta cane fly rod is highly stylized and apparently a special order with red grip accents and extra decorative signature wraps. The brass screw top band is script engraved “H.G.C. 1893”.
