Or, he could just take some sewing thread and rewrap the guide. Then, use 5 minute epoxy to seal the thread. Not professional, but I expect that it will be very functional for a total cost of about 50 cents if the items are already on hand.

Thanks so much guys - super helpful advice. Norm is right - the cost of supplies, even a few, may exceed the cost of just having someone repair the rod(s). I actually have another rod where I need to have a guide replaced. I actually purchased the guide for that rod and got a couple of guides from a generous Bloodydecks member in San Diego who sent them my way as they were spares for him. What I may just end up doing is visiting the open-invite rod building club that meets in the SD area (maybe take a day off work or something) and get some help from the guys there. I figure if I can get help with both guides being re-wrapped (which seems to be the most challenging part), I can probably do the epoxy myself or have it done there and just drive back and rotate it at home for the drying. The Youtube vids make it look easy but I' sure it's not as easy as it looks ;)
