I feel that I am very lucky because all my rods were hand built for me by Steve Parton. He was one of the great characters of life and a good friend.

However, I have just had a disaster. My absolute favourite rod is a 9ft Supernymph, built on a Newport 3 AFTM 6#. Last week, with a 2lb rainbow fighting on the end, the upper section broke clean in half.

I really want to replace this section, and get it rebuilt. I know that Steve would have done it having sworn at me for not looking after it.

Can anybody make a suggestion of who the best person to do this would be?
