Verdigris a problem? Oxidation giving you a headache? Copper carbonate nightmares? Not any more with the ”Fredline Ferrule Freeeer”. Take a short piece of any dowel or stick slightly smaller than the ferrule, wrap wet and dry paper around the dowel, I use 1200 grade, and lightly polish the internal surface. It only takes a couple of rotations. Dry the inside and test. Voila another rod on its way back.
If you have no grease with you, and your rings are full of ice, do not cut out the ice with a pen-knife but get your man to put the rings one by one in his mouth, and so to thaw the ice.

A great idea John, simple but clearly very effective!

Great idea and very timely, I returned from the lake on Tuesday with the top 2 sections of my 12 foot roach rod firmly locked together. Bit embarrassing really especially trying to fit into the car. After some serious persuasion at home eventually using gland pliers they parted. No amount of lubrication or serious rubbing with Brasso made them fit properly. A piece of 2000 grit w & d wrapped round a stub of reed was the perfect tool. Gentle working first produced a black residue which with further working turned to gold. A little bit of candle wax rubbed over for protection and it all works like new, nice and tight but still comes apart. So thanks again.
