Fly Rod Restore Part 11: Wrapping guides... Kingfisher


Folks I started with the butt section of the Kingfisher fly rod... Color combo for this rod is black and garnet (maroon)..... Please see the series of photos. Note the wraps I put on the ferrule section to cover the crack repair and the notch repair as well. They came out great.

Getting started at the hook keeper.

Wrapped Stripping guide.

First coat of Spar varnish on one side.

Repaired section where crimped notches were.

First coat of finish on stripping guide and repair cracked ferrule over-wrap. I am very happy with how this finished.
