I think this topic could have some great disscusion over the winter months.
Hopefully everyone will have some time ,advise or input on this subject. Fly rods, bamboo, casting and spinning; whatever rod you want to build. lets here about it!!
Thanks again Dave.

Fishing Fever does repair rods but the fellow told me they usually do this type of repair during their slow season (ie, winter), and I don't really want to wait until next spring to use the rod.
Thanks in advance for your words of wisdom!
Cheers and good fishing!

Thanks for the response...Pretty clean break, it is a graphite rod. was bought used and I use it for a back up rod or in smaller streams etc. It sort of looks like it had been repaired before and the piece that snapped off was the piece that had been fixed? looks to me like a 2" piece of blank was glued over top the original rod blank? and bored out to fit together with the 2nd piece. The rod worked well before the break, I am not concerned if it is shorter etc. What sort of cost would the repair be? As you say it might not be worth fixing... thanks again for your responce.
