Well, it took awhile to get this combo completed and there are still a couple minor things need done, but I wanted to thank several folks that helped with the restoration of this Hardy Zane Grey rod and reel. Thanks to Ed P. for some good advice and to Dan Zirilli and Captain Jon for teaming up to get me one missing guide that would normally be impossible to find! Most of all, I want to give a shout-out to ORCAn Phil Beguhl, who did a fantastic re-wrap on the rod. I just didn't trust myself to do this wrap and I'm glad I took my advice :D

One Before-After for effect:











Michael Farrior also came through with the wrench that was missing from the kit and thanks to advice from Ward Tonsfeldt, a bit of TLC brought back the best in the leather case! Great tackle...great friends! Oh, and by the way...NOT FOR SALE!

That rod and reel combo would make any big game fish just surrender and jump on board. What a great addition to your collection, John. Congrats!

Fantastic outfit John! That is a keeper for sure. The rod looks amazing, old Phil did a first class restoration for you. Now you have to get all the different sizes, only six more to go.

Nice !

I hadn't heard Phil's name mentioned in a while. Glad to hear he is still active. He sure did a sweet job on your rod.

Thanks, All! Been trying to reach out to Cameron in Darwin, but emails must be going to spam or something...I thought maybe Family would appreciate seeing the tackle brought back to life. Wish rod and reel could tell me about some of the adventures its been on!
