Steve...sorry about your rod..I feel your pain.
While I can't give a personal experience recommendation on this guy's work...I have been to his fly shop and seen the rods he has built and repaired...they look absolutely great.... but I have never had to have a rod repaired. He is about 5 miles from my home.
Google Cote's Fly Shop.....there is even a 2nd web address re rod building.
I know he builds and repairs rods, sell blanks and all sorts of related material.
His shop is in his basement. He often is at the marlboro fly show with a big booth....he brings all his stuff there in an old school bus.............so....old school bus, long hair down to his back, shop in the basement...he may be just the craftman you are looking for. My experience is that these are the kind of guys that are really masters at their craft......hopefully he is. May be worth a call.
Ron
