Question about Loomis G. Classic GL2 Series Fly Rods FR1086; Neptune

1 Answer

I used superglue to fix a broken fishing rod. It has broken again at the same spot and I want to remove the original superglue to replace it. I used a darning needle to put inside the fibreglass rod at the break to strengthen the join. Unfortunately it broke again at the same place and I need to extract the broken needle. Will heat disolve the superglue?

No, but there used to be a product for removing Superglue. If you find it ,post on your comments. I need some too. I thought it was Superglue Dissolver but did not find it on the Net.

I fixed my rod with a wooden dowel cut down to insert into the break. It worked, but I wondered about wrapping the shaft with the material used for replacing eyelets. That way there is strengthening on the outside of the rod too.

As one fisherman to another "Where are you finding fish big enough to break these rods?"

Which are the best places to do fishing?And which are best fishing rods we shuold have ?

Fish like edges or places where the bottof structure of the body of water you're fishing changes.
For instance a shallow flat with a deeper hole or ditch running through it. Or a drop off with a point that extends off of it.
if spots like the contain cover then they become even more attractive to fish. Cover is weeds, wood, rock or any other type of material that either naturally occurs of is artificially created. For instance a concrete break wall or a jetty that has bRosen rock along it makes great cover for fish. Fish also use edges, these can occur in a number of different ways. For instance where sandyou bottom turns to gravel or the edge of a weed line or where warme and cooler water meet etc. If you can locate an edge on a structural change and that edge meets cover or is the cover itself you've found potentially awesome fishing spot. The fish might not be there every day but they will use it at some point in time.
Hope this helps, good luck.

How to fix a fishing rod broken tip

I pushed my seat back and broke the tip of my good graphite rod.
The break was about 4" back from tip.

I fixed the tip of my graphite fishing rod with a sewing needle and a 3" piece of electric heat shrink.

The graphite rod is hollow in the center. Find a sewing needle that fits snug in the center. Put a piece of the smallest heat shrink over one side of the break and slide back out of way. Put some super glue on the needle and slide firmly on one side. (don't waste time.. super glue is fast) . Then put glue on the piece of needle that still sticking out and slide into matching side of break. Push together snug and make sure eyes are aligned. Slide the heat shrink over the break and heat with hair dryer till nice and snug.
Done. Fixed.

Safari rear door latch broken

It could be that the rod has come detached from the latch mechanism itself. I had this problem on my 94 Safari. I had to remove the panel for the hatch portion (I have the dutch doors) and release the door manually (Terrible design not having an easily accessed internal release!). Once you have the door open, you can reconnect the rod into the original socket. I recommend using some safety wire through some existing holes to pull the rod tightly into the socket, but not so tight that the rod will not move. another option is to use a clip like this one that fits around the rod and linkpoint. Either of these will keep the rod firmly in place.

How to fit new push rod cover cups

On your bike the factory stock push rods do not adjust.

So, you'll have to remove the top of the rocker covers, remove the rocker arms, remove the push rods (keep them in order, as they are different lengths and need to go back in the same spot they came out of) remove the push rod tube clip, and collapse and remove the push rod tube assembly.

Once out, disassemble the push rod tube, then reassemble with the new push rod cup.

Reassemble everything, putting the push rods in the same spot the came out of (again, they are different lengths)
