Default Broken Fly Rod Tip

I'm surprised I haven't done this sooner. The other day I got careless and snapped about 2 inches off of the tip of my favorite 3 wt. fly rod. Any thoughts on how I can salvage the rod? Never had to deal with this before.

Thanks in advance.

Chuck,

Got careless putting the rod pieces back in the tube. That old saying "if it don't fit, force it" doesn't work for a 3 wt graphite rod. Good luck with adventures into fly fishing. Orvis makes some good videos for beginners. I got one for my daughter to watch (unfortunately never caught on) and learned a lot of new things. Just a suggestion.

I broke the tip off a flyrod several years ago, I bought a new tip that was a larger inside diameter and put it on with superglue., I am still using the rod.
