First rod advice
I'm retiring soon. I'd like to build a fly rod or two. My first attempt at rod building.
Should I start with cheap components - blank, reel seat, cork, etc.? This on the theory I'll likely have some things go wrong.
Or, should I start with more expensive components on the theory that most mistakes are fixable?
What say you, all?
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body,
but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out and proclaiming, 'Wow. What a ride!!!'
