Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
Will this base fit a Marsh McBirney Rod?
Unfortunately, this base is not designed to fit a Marsh McBirney wading rod.
Part looks like same cast bases that often break. What is material, and do you sell brass bases?
The top setting wading rod base plate is machined from aluminum bar stock as specified by the USGS. The typical complaint is that sometimes the threads get banged up, but that can typically be fixed by running a 7/16-20 tap through them. We do not sell brass bases at the moment.

The dumping of the hexavalent chromium by PG&E that the film documented took place in the 1950s and 1960s, although the company didn't tell anyone about the problem until the late 1980s. Based on current litigation around the Illinois and Indiana shores of Lake Michigan, startlingly little has changed.
