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.
