How Do You Fix an Eye Ring on a Fishing Pole?

Fixing an Eye Ring on a Fishing Pole

Eye rings on a fishing pole are essential components when it comes to setting up and maintaining your tackle. Not only do they provide a secure anchor point for your line, but they also ensure that the line is evenly distributed throughout the entire length of the pole. Unfortunately, eye rings can often become loose or damaged due to wear and tear or improper use, leaving you with an unstable fishing pole.

Fortunately, fixing an eye ring on a fishing pole is relatively straightforward and can be done in just a few steps. The first step is to assess the damage.

If the eye ring itself is broken or cracked, it will need to be replaced. If it’s simply loose or missing screws, you’ll need to start by securing it back into place.

To secure the eye ring back into place, you’ll need some type of adhesive. For metal eye rings, epoxy works best; for plastic ones, super glue should do the trick. Using the adhesive of your choice, apply it generously around the circumference of the eye ring and then press it firmly into place against the pole.

After allowing ample time for the adhesive to dry (at least 24 hours), you can re-thread your line through the eye ring and begin using your pole as normal. If necessary, you can also add screws around the circumference of the eye ring if desired.


Fixing an eye ring on a fishing pole is essential for ensuring a secure connection between your line and rod. With just some simple tools and supplies like epoxy or super glue, you can easily restore any damaged or loose eye rings in no time!
