What should I do if my fishing rod tip is broken?
Inspect the rod to see exactly what’s been broken. If the damage is to the tip top alone (broken or grooved guide ring), you can simply replace the tip top with a new one. If the damage is to the rod blank at the tip, you’ll have to cut the rod tip cleanly as close to the end as you can.
What’s the best way to fix a broken fishing pole?
Open your 2-part epoxy and pour it into a bowl. Use a paintbrush to spread a thin layer of the epoxy on the exposed end of the fiberglass pole. Once the 2-part epoxy is mixed, work quickly so it doesn’t dry or set before you put your rod back together. You can buy 2-part epoxy from any hardware or craft store.
How do you put epoxy on a fishing rod?
Push the 2 pieces of the rod together so they’re flush. Let the epoxy set overnight so it firmly adheres to the rod. The epoxy doesn’t set right away, so you can still rotate or move the rod pieces once you slide them together.
