A friend built a fly rod about 8-10 years ago at my class at church. He brought the tip by today to see if I could repair it. It is a 4 ft. tip and the break is about 14 inches from the female ferrule. I do have a piece of a tip that I can glue and insert into the lower section. Then I can slip the other part over the old tip. It is a clean break, fortunately. He suspects that some of the grandkids might have something to do with it as they have been fishing with him. Now- how much of the tip should I insert into each of the broken pieces? The tip section is about 14 inches long. Many thanks to all. Will epoxy it in place and wrap with black thread to hide the break.
