Default Re: White River 270 fly rod with broken tip

There's a good chance that you may have liked that 5wt with a 6 line in the first place, even before you broke it

Fixing a broken tip isn't really that hard.
You find yourself a piece of scrap fiberglass rod that will fit tight on the inside of the two pieces, just like a spigot ferrule would.
Glue the three pieces together, wrap it with white rod building thread, and slap on a little finish.
Just like new
