Wading Staff Repair
Friday, December 3, 2010

I use my staff all the time and believe I am still alive as a result of some timely, deperate pokes at the streambed. 

Eventually, the tip comes off and I have to go out and spend another $30 on a new staff.  Geez..

Lon solved the problem - just drill a hole through a large lag bolt, match it to the same sized hole on the wading staff.  Insert a bolt.


Repair complete and ready for a new season. 

If you really want to get fancy, you can drill two holes.

AND, I get to go blow that $30 on something else I don't need.
