Default Starting out

OK,

I may, or may not want to start building a rod here and there. Not to save any money but just because I think it looks a like a bit of fun.

Starting out I wouldn't get to crazy and would just build from kits until I got the hang of what I was doing, but I think it would be fun way to start building up the arsenal of rods.

I know, like everything else in fly fishing, the more money you invest to start, typically the smoother the experience, but I don't want to go too overboard with this whole venture.

Would a builders kit like this: Mud Hole Custom Builder Wrapping Kit

be sufficient to build a few. I know It doesn't give me many thread color choices but those, just like tying materials would eventually be accumulated.


Then I want to build rods out of something like this: Temple Fork Professional Series Fly Rod Kits | mudhole.com

Or something from a kit. Or like like a handle kit and blank and guides.

Any advice?
