Caring for a Fly Rod
As a general axiom it may be said use and that split-bamboo rods require considerably more care than those of solid wood; and since, for fly-casting, your rod will preferably be of split-bamboo, you must be prepared to take good care of it. By all means learn how to wind a rod so that frayed or loosened guide or ferrule windings may be replaced at once without waiting for a rod maker or anyone else to do it for you. Any experienced angler will gladly show you the trick, or you can pick it up from one of the tackle books, such as Mr. Wells' Fly-Rods And Fly-Tackle before referred to. Wipe the rod dry after fishing and before putting it away in the rod case.
