Default Re: Fly Assembly-Sage

Remove the four sections from their cloth sock and place them on a safe, non-abrasive surface. Take the tip and second section join the ferules loosely and sight down them by eye adjusting the guides to be aligned then snug the ferrule tight but not forcibly tight, repeat with the third section and ultimately the butt section. The butt has no guides so you have to align via the reel seat hood buried beneath the cork. Mount the reel and sight down the rod checking everything is straight and re-check the ferrules for snugness. To diss-assemble put a hand above and below each ferrule and pull apart with out twisting. Make sure the rod is dry before returning the sections to the cloth sock and rod tube. Have fun.
