Mark,Unlike a fly I tied that I really don't have confidence in, any rod will fish, so I know this rod can catch them...just more work than it should be. Also put a lot of time in to make it. Do I cannabilize it for parts, try to do a rehabilitation ala Steve Kokita's Hotrodz, or turn it into a wall hanger as a reminder of a bad idea?
What do you guys do with a 'not so great' build?
Use the top three sections, scarf joint them and make a shorter one piece rod. Frankenrods are fun!
