    Looking for a broken rod...

    Hey all,

    I'm sure someone has a broken rod laying around. Specifically I'm looking for a butt section. I was just given a pristine 4(?)wt reel of my grandfathers and rather than fish it I want to make a shadow box to put on the wall and thought it would look better on a cut-down rod...

    I'll be happy to pay shipping? Let me know if anyone has some garbage in their garage

    there is a Sage One 4 wt rod butt section in eBay right now for under $10 now that is a $650 fly rod so it may go up but just search Sage One 490-4 and it should come up. http://www.ebay.com/itm/321060730318...84.m1438.l2649
