rod repair question ???
Permalink  
 


Yesterday I was fishing and the threaded part of the reel seat came off my rod. I stuck it back on and it seems ok but I want to glue it to be sure. Any suggestions on what a profesional rod builder would use ? This was pretty disapointing since this is a very expensive fly rod. It has a lifetime warranty but doing without my favorite rod this time of year is not an option.
