If it is a cork handle, this will be a little bit more difficult to fix, as the handle will have to be taken off. If it is a wood handle, which I doubt since it sounds like a store bought model, it could be heated to melt the epoxy. I would probably go with trying to remove the cork by cutting it off, and then when you get to the actual rod blank using sand paper to remove any remaining cork and epoxy. After that it is a matter of putting a new handle and reel seat on, which isn't terribly difficult, but you need to know what you are doing for sure. If you want more info feel free to email me andylori_1@msn.com

      I used a self adhering tape to attach them,  but now the tape is getting sticky and a pain to use.  Any ideas what something else too use? Thanks

      Check out the South Central Forum, or MN Metro Forum and ask there as well as the SE MN- Rochester Forum. You may get more answers there as well.   If you could extend to three hours away Mille Lacs Lake could for sure accomodate what you are looking for.

      Hello...  I am coming down to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester from Homer, Alaska on February 11-20 and would like some advice. On the afternoon of Friday the 16th  through the evening of Sunday the 18th I have the time to go fishing. I would like to go after some pike and walleye. I would like to stay in a heated shack during my time on the ice. Also some rental gear, a radio and bait might be nice. Any advice on who rents shacks within a 2+ hour drive of Rochester with good size fish? I am looking more for decent size than numbers.  Thanks JFaber
