Any guys out there that re-do eyes on a fly rod without breaking my bank? I figure some of you home rod builders could be looking for something to do. I have an older Loomis 8-wt that I would like to have the yes re-wrapped and maybe a coat of rod varnish afterwards. Please PM if interested.

Thanks much.

Do a little "You Tubing" and take it on yourself. Most difficult part is devising some equipment to turn the rod while the epoxy or varnish cures. Even that aspect can be relatively inexpensive as I can find rotissiere motors in second had stores for just a couple bucks.
