Default Re: Let's do it again!! Build a fly rod, that is!!

Hi Everyone,

Auntie Em is an accomplished rod builder and this is an excellent opportunity to get some help with your first fly rod build. We have recently had a few inquires about building again and Auntie Em has volunteered to help us along. So get your name in this thread and lets see how many we actually have that want to participate. There will be a list of materials and suggestions on where to buy what you need. You could also buy a kit and work with that. The main thing is to learn and have fun.

There are videos out there that do a really good job of giving information but you can't ask questions of a video. Auntie Em loves questions.

Frank

Here is a rod that Auntie Em built last year. You can see the quality of her work.

Lamiglas 7'4#, orange banded agate stripping guide, scarlet wraps, cigar grip, downlocking reel seat with myrtle wood insert. I did not use color lock on it. The Threadmaster finish left it the right/true color, and still had the translucency.
