    I have two bamboo rods that I would like to replace the eyes on. The agate has been lost for some time on one and ther other just had a metal eye and would like put a agate eye on it. I have heard that this a huge proccess and I do not want to ruin my rods. I was just wondering who the WFF rod makers recommend for such a repair???

    Here are two local people that you might try. A.B. Herndon and Jay Humling.

    A.B. mostly builds new but may also be willing to do repairs/restorations. His new rods are really nice, simple and very clean. Nothing fancy just good solid craftsmanship. I spent an afternoon with him at his shop a few months ago. He is very well set up for serious rod production. Contact him here splitcanerods@comcast.net or info@herndonrods.com or view his web site here http://www.herndonrods.com/

    Jay had a post on this board a while back. He was selling some restored rods.
    Try a search in the classifieds on this site.
    He describes himself as "strictly a hobbyist that enjoys the process and satisfaction one gets when creating something people enjoy". He can also build new. Contact him here northlake27@yahoo.com

    Tim,
    Thank you for your kind words on my bamboo rod building. It was a real pleasure to have you over to show you my shop and bamboo rods.
    I have four rod orders pending at this time, so I don't really have the time to do any restoration work, but thank you for mentioning me.
    Jeff Pope, who now lives in Spokane is the person who I highly recommend for restoration work. His e-mail address is: canenut@hotmail.com

    Heh there DH if you still haven't got your rods restored email me through this site and I can give you another name if you want. He is a local guy and I work for him, was just talking to him about a bamboo rod he has sitting against the wall, so I know he can do them.
