Kingfisher - Ferrule Repair

As some of you may remember I broke one of the tip sections of my recently rebuilt Kingfisher bamboo fly rod fishing out in Montana this summer...

See the "Broken Hearted" post here: https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=6587365398588568558#editor/target=post;postID=7645821091392945748;onPublishedMenu=allposts;onClosedMenu=allposts;postNum=10;src=postname

And if your interested in the total rebuild of this fly rod you can look back through the older posts and see those as well.

Today, I worked on the repair of that broken tip section...


the clean break right at the ferrule section...

drilling out the old bamboo and pin removal...

working on the bamboo fit and prep...

the repaired and aligned ferrule with the pin installed... in the end I lost about 5/8" of the tip section...

tools for wrapping the decretive black band...

wrapped...

first coat of spar varnish applied... just four more to go... and she will be good to fish...
