· Fly Away
I have a spotless Scott S3s 908/4 fly rod that I bought years ago and only used once on a trip to Alaska fishing for coho and sockeye and once in the islands fishing for bonefish. Today I tried to joint it together, but none of the ferrules will fit together flush. There is a gap between every one. I've tried beeswax, dubbing wax and even using very fine steel wool--all to no avail. The rod joints are clean. Anyone have a solution for this short of sending it back to the factory? The ferrules are so tight I doubt any lubricant will work. I want to sell the rod, but obviously not the way it is now.
