How Do You Fix a Broken Fishing Rod Ring?

Fishing rod rings are key components of a fishing rod, as they help to guide the line around the rod and reduce wear on the line. But, if your fishing rod rings are broken, it can make your fishing trips difficult and painful.

Lucky for you, fixing a broken fishing rod ring is relatively easy and inexpensive.

The first step in fixing a broken fishing rod ring is to identify the type of ring that needs to be replaced. Most rods come with either single or double-barrel rings, which are attached to the top of the rod with screws. If your ring is single-barrel, then you simply need to unscrew it from the top of the rod and replace it with a new one.

If you have a double-barrel ring, then you will need to remove both screws from each side of the top of the rod. Once both screws are removed, carefully pull out each side of the ring from its housing in the top of the rod. Then, replace each side of the double-barrel ring with new ones.

Next, you will need to attach your new rings back onto your fishing rod. Start by inserting one end of each side into its housing in the top of the rod.

Securely tighten each screw before moving on to attaching the other side. Once both sides are securely fastened onto your fishing rod, you can then attach your line.

Finally, check all connections before using your newly repaired fishing rod. You don’t want any surprises while out on your next fishing trip!

With these steps in mind, fixing a broken fishing rod ring is an easy and cost-effective repair that anyone can complete.

Conclusion: Fixing a broken fishing rod ring is an easy and cost-effective repair that anyone can do at home. All it takes is identifying which type of ring needs to be replaced – either single or double-barrel – removing them from their housing in the top of the rod and replacing them with new ones before attaching them back onto their respective sides on your fishing pole and checking all connections for safety before use.
