Still working on the rod. Tried the reverse clamp with no success. The rod is a 13 foot Raven float rod in three pieces. It is taken apart every time. My son was fishing the St. Mary's river and the rod got submerged . It has been stuck since.

My son's float rod will not come apart at the first ferrule. I was going to remove the ferrule wrap on the female side and try a bit of heat. Any help would be appreciated . .

Just built 2 Rain shadow dipsy rods with slick grips. They are great. Going to cut the EVA grips off my remaining down rigger rods this winter and replace them with Slick Grips.

Also, do yourself a favor and use a Slick Grip for the rear. Comes out of the holder much better.

The main reason for wire line on Lake Ontario is the water fleas. Braid is fine until the fleas show up as the water warms. They cling to the braid and you end up with pipe cleaner all the way down the line that clogs the tip. Wire line saws right through them.

I have a 18 foot lund fisherman and run the large dipsys, not the mags. I have 9 foot rods now that need new guides. Was looking to build a couple of shorter rods using the Silicon Nitride guides.

Need to rebuild several dipsy diver wire line rods. Current guides are grooved and need to be replaced. I run twilly tips on the rods and would like some recommendations on some guides that will stand up to the wire line. I fish Lake Ontario for salmon.
