Well guys/gals I took on a project in the last month that I was really worried about. My boss asked me to see what I could do with an old fishing rod of his. He figures the rod is 46 years old! It is an old Garcia that he managed to keep hanging in there over the years. I will post a before picture then an after picture. Worst thing was that he wanted to reuse the same guides and I could not clean them up any more. Yes this took time but if anyone is interested in redoing a rod drop me a line and we can talk prices.

Some day I may have to take advantage of that service.. I've got one of my grandma's 1960's or 70's Berkley Cherrywood graphites that isn't really fishable...though I don't think I'd ever fish it myself it might be nice to have it restored and then displayed. I know its' not all that old really but it's something he used and handed down.



Even a BAD day of fishing is better than a good day of work; paydays excluded!
