Rod repair in NoVA?

Need to have a rod tip replaced on a rod. I'm in Woodbridge, I'd prefer not to have to go too far...
Any suggestions, besides DIY?

You can probably repair it yourself. Tip tops are usually held on by ferrule cement or a fast drying epoxy. Heating the shaft of the tip top with a candle or lighter will loosen the epoxy and you can remove the tip top. Most tackle shops sell replacement tip tops and epoxy or ferrule cement to repair rods. If your rod is a heavy saltwater rod, I would use the five-minute epoxy.
