I can build one for photos of the steps if we need to. I was planning to build a 12 wt. and another spey rod anyway. Something in the 16 or 17 foot long zone for the long belly lines. I turn my own grips in case anyone wants to do that also. Not the cheapest way to go though.

Or would this be a bad idea for a first rod build?
Not a bad idea. It's not going to be any harder than any other fly rod. Longer just means more guides, and once you do one....
