    A guy that I work with from time to time brought a handful of rods to work one day, and said they were his father in laws I think 6 rods in total, and most were old broom stick cod rods, but there was one jewel in the bunch. A Harnell 777. It’s a 7’ spinner with the white split grip. Anyway, he asked if I would restore one rod for him for the trade. I agreed, but when he showed me the rod, I was a little taken back. It’s a late 70s early 80s Zebco 8’ surf rod. He said it was his father in laws favorite rod for pier fishing, but two guides had come undone, and well.. it was beat ! I told him I would spruce it up a bit and add new guides etc. well, here’s the start of it. Still need to wrap 4 more guides and apply 2 coats of flex coat. A bit over the top, but for me , every design is one of a kind, and I have fun with it.
