How Do You Fix a Broken Fishing Rod Handle?

Fishing rod handles can be delicate, and it’s not uncommon for them to break over time. If your fishing rod handle has broken, don’t despair!

Fixing a broken fishing rod handle is a relatively simple process.

The first step to fixing a broken fishing rod handle is to determine the extent of the damage. If the break is clean and all of the pieces are present, the repair should be straightforward. If any pieces are missing, however, you may need to purchase replacements before continuing.

Once you have all of your materials together, it’s time to begin the repair process. Start by cleaning any debris or dirt off of the broken pieces with a soft cloth.

Then use sandpaper or a file to smooth out any rough edges on both sides of the break. This will help ensure that when you glue the pieces back together they will fit properly.

Next, spread an even layer of epoxy adhesive on both sides of the break and press them together firmly. Allow this to dry for at least 24 hours before continuing.

Finally, wrap some electrical tape around where the two pieces meet for extra strength and stability.

The fishing rod should now be ready for use!

Fixing a broken fishing rod handle is not as difficult as it may seem. With some basic supplies and some patience, you can have your fishing rod back in action in no time!
