    After the final coat of epoxy had dried, I noticed that somehow the top guide on the third piece of a 4 pc 4wt rod is misaligned, it got way off to the left somehow. I'm still going to fish it before I take it apart, but what a bummer! It's still fairly in line but definitely off-center. It reminds me of a freinds dog that was just a cute little miniature collie until it opened it's mouth and you could see that one of it's long front teeth was sticking straight out to the side!

    I wouldn't worry too much about it Willy...granted it's going to be an eye sore to ya, cause you know it's there. As long as it isn't hindering your fly line travel through the guides, I would just wait till you have to refinish something on it. If it ever comes to that!!!

    PICTURES, we need PICTURES!!!!


    By the way I'm in the process of building a 7'6" 4 wt 4piece for myself...can't wait till it's done.
