What a labour of love!

I, like many others, have carried out pretty good repair work on several rods over the years, but never, ever to the extent of that shown in Rob's post, above. Obviously someone with loads of skill and an intimate knowledge around rod building. The ability to think outside the box to solve problems is something I admire and appreciate.

Always a pleasure to read such accounts and very well written IMO.....

Thanks for that, Rob!
