Default Re: General Info

The hardest part about building a rod is just getting started
ANYONE THAT CAN TIE A FLY CAN BUILD A ROD
No special gear, no special talent

Personally, I learned enough to get started from Al Campbell's tutorial that I found on the Mudhole site.
"Build Your Own Graphite Rod"
You can find enough information on-line that you can build yourself as good a rod as any factory rod out there....at half the price.
