Greetings,
I need a little help from my fellow casters out there. I have a small repair job to do on one of my bamboo rods. I am trying to find about 15 feet of a rod winding thread of a certain color. It is called Rices Jasper Green/Black and evidently it is fairly rare, or at least hard to come by. I have searched the web and there's none out there. I would be more than willing to purchase a spool from you if one is available. If not, I would certainly pay you for 15 feet of your spool.
Much appreciated!😃
Dan Gillen

Dan you might also post what you're looking for on the "Classic Fly Rod Forum" in the Rod making, restoration, repairs and discussion on those related topics concerning bamboo rods.

and also the FaceBook page "Those who Fish and/or Build Bamboo Rods"

Thanks Poppy,
I follow classicflyrodforum.com as well as Spey pages on a daily basis. Nothing has come available so far. I'll keep searching.

Hi, Dan.  I am thinking of James Reid, the world class cane rod builder up here in North Vancouver, British Columbia.  He has done some outstanding repair work for me on two of my vintage salmon rods and has deep contacts in the craft.  He has been very helpful to me and others.  He can be found using Google.  Regards, Graham.
