The top half of my 4wt Thomas & Thomas is broken. I built it in 1997 and T&T tells me it's $800 for a finished replacement. They are sending me a new top half blank, so need to build it out or hire someone to do it for me. Made a few calls and was told no one in Anchorage is building rods commercially. Anyone know of someone that could build out the top half of this rod? If not, where is a good place to get the supplies to do it myself. Or if anyone is building rods at home and would be willing to mentor me (I haven't built one since the late 90's) I'd be willing to pitch in for more than just the gear I need. Sure would be nice to have my rod operable by July. Thanks!
