    Question Rod repair

    My cousin's grandfather recently gave him an old South Bend Model 59 Bamboo 9ft fly rod which is missing two eyelets. My cousin said he researched and found the ro to be worh only 150 dollars if in good condition, so he wants to repair the rod. Where could we get two eyelts put on the rod?

    If you want the guides to match the others I would ask this question over at Clark's Classic Fly Rod Forum as the members over there may have some replacement guides they would be willing to part with as well as matching thread and refinishing advice. If you are just wanting to order some guides to put on the rod so it is fishable, you could get them from just about any where. Take a look at Jann's Netcraft or Mudhole if you are only looking for making the rod fishable again.
