Reparing fly rod???

3 posts in this topic

Is there a way to repair the tip of a fly rod? It busted probably a good 8 inches down on the tip. I didn't think my rod was sticking out the car window when i decided to roll it up mad

There is....you can find a section of a rod that will fit snuggly 3/4" or more on either side of the break and use a good two part epoxy to glue it in place. Fiberglass works best if you can get ahold of it. You will probably have to remove the tip and a guide or 2 depending on where you broke it. It is best to slide it down from the top so that the taper is snug. You will need to wrap thread over it and then a coat of thread epoxy to protect the thread. Re-wrap the guides, finish and you are ready to go fishing again.

I have repaired a couple of rods this way and it turns out pretty well and if you are neat it looks pretty good.
