Default Rod repair

Any recommendation for rod repairs locally? I snapped a guide off my St Croix (2 years ago ) and should get it fixed soon as I remember to bring it into the city.

Is it the end line guide? If so, it is pretty easy to fix. In the past I would take my rods to The Fishing Hole and they would fix them but for the last few years I have been doing it myself. Just buy the right size line guide (The Fishing Hole) and attach it with hot glue.

Other shops may sell the line guides as well. I have even found them at Canadian Tire on occasion.

It's not the end guide. It is 2nd or 3rd from top. I was considering DIY too, may go with that option.
