Easiest way to find the spine?
The supplies to build my first rod should be here in the next few days, and I was looking for some advice on finding the spine. I know there are a few methods out there, but I was wondering which way you think is the easiest for a beginner.
As a secondary question, I wanted to make sure I'm correct in thinking that I should build on the spine and not the belly. I will be building a 7wt to start off. I believe belly is for lighter weight rods.
Thanks for the help.
