For better or worse I acquired an otherwise very nice fly rod in excellent condition except... the grip. It is badly chewed up. I think the previous owners puppy got ahold of it (literally). Regardless, I need to replace the entire grip. The question is; how? If I strip the entire grip mess currently in place off that should yield some epoxy on the rod (or whatever was used). That could be carefully sanded as necessary. The question is, could a take a half wells full cork grip, cut it in half, lay it over the rod, glue and clamp back together? Is that even feasible? Thanks !
