I'm a teacher, I fish to eat!
Hey Guys, well i have built 4 or 5 rods and love doing it! Everything has been going smoothly until i decide to build a friend as spey for a wedding present. The build was going fine until i epoxied the two tops sections. The epoxying went well but the drying did not. I usually do not try to dry my rods over nice because i like to check in on them but this one i had no choice. One of my rubberbands that hold the rod in place broke so there was not enough tension for the rod to be turned by the dryer, thus the rod settles guides down and the epoxy all ran to that side and made huge lumps. how can i fix this? I have never had to mess with epoxy that has already set. Thanks for any advice and or fixes. BTW it is a sweet looking rod, batson blank 13 6 7/8 blue with metallic blue wraps! Will post pics when fixed.
