Hey guys. Probably been answered before. What’s the best quick fix/easy way to epoxy some guide wraps? My father in law just found a old eagle claw 7.5 footer and an old actionrod in his basement. They are mint really but the thread seems suspect and would want them covered before I take them fishing. Any thoughts?

Those are older rods. They were probably varnished, not epoxied. Varnish is much easier to deal with.

Clean the wraps gently with mineral spirits. Get a small can of spar varnish at your local hardware emporium. Apply a couple of very thin coats of varnish. Let each coat dry at least a day before applying another coat. Apply enough varnish that you like the results. Clean your brushes with mineral spirits.

Another product that will work very well for this is Varathane Diamond finish.It is water soluble until it dries ,goes on thin and is a hard protective finish when done.It is a polymer finish.
