You have to cut a perfectly good rod in half with a hacksaw, tidy up the cut areas, add a ferrule and glue it into place either side of the cut and wullah - 2 pieces.

 

Personally I wouldn't do it, I'd buy a new 2 piece rod.

Callum, it is very possible, it needs to be carefully done

but you can do it yourself for not that great a cost.
There are plenty of rod building forums on the web. Just do a google search for what you are after as there are a few different methods.
