Where to get old fishing rod refurbished?
« on: December 07, 2017, 08:00:55 PM »
Evening folks-
My grandpa recently gave me one of his old fishing rods.  It appears to be an old bamboo, octagonal rod.  From googling it I think itís a nippon fishing tackle rod.  Itís in pretty rough shape, missing a few eyes and the varnish is peeling.  Iíd love to get it touched up and hang it on the wall.  Does anyone know where I could get this done?  I found a guy on the east coast but would like to keep it local.  Thanks for your time.

Greg has a pretty good reputation from what I've heard also.
 
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Another vote for Gregís- they fixed up a rod for me this year and is was very nicely done.
There is not enough wilderness left in the world, or in the hearts of men.
