Fly Rod Repair Kit
This is a good investment. If you have a repair kit — to say nothing of its use on the stream for you will probably leave it at home — you will undoubtedly learn eventually how to re-wind, re-varnish and otherwise tinker rods and other tackle, which is not only practically interesting but cheats the professional repairers. Anglers who can indite a sonnet to a "speckled beauty," or write a " Song of the Reel" are in the majority. Those who can rewind a fly-rod are vastly in the minority. A very ambitious repair kit, the best available — with one exception— contains pliers, nippers, screw-drivers, tweezers, oil-can, ferrule cement, file, wrapping silk, and various other articles too numerous to mention, and all are enclosed in a handy folding leather case small enough to go into a pocket. But it costs a pretty penny — $7.50. The "exception " costs $12.00. Other less comprehensive and luxurious kits, sufficiently adequate however, cost $1.50.
