Broken rod

Recommended Posts

Looks like I'll be doing some rod repair this winter after breaking the Sage rod I built.

Kind of hurts to break a good rod.

What exactly got broken? More than one section?

Broke the third section.  I sent back to get fitted for a new blank.

Got my new section.  Going to be a long winter until I can use it in the spring.  Jim, I'll need a space in the next class to rebuild it.

Normally Jim will just let you come in and use the equipment to do it, he doesn't require you to take the class.  He will also do it for you for a fee, if you would rather not take the time.  Give him a call for details.

Hey Water Rat.

I have a 120 VAC electric motor with really slow RPMs you can have if you want to build a Rotating Thingabobit for making fishing rods. 

thugh about making one myself but there is not enough time left in life to do the things I need to do , never mind optional stuff.

Got my new section.  Went to EBFS to rebuild it.

All done now.  Time to get it wet.

If the weather would just cooperate.
