Default Let's Build a Rod Together

Hi Everyone,

I have seen several post about putting together a fly rod. If we have some interest, Mojo has volunteered to help coordinate and provide technical information as needed. This will be a chance for someone who has never put together a rod to get their feet wet. I think Mojo can steer you to some materials that won't break the bank. You don't have to be a beginner if you want to join in.

So lets get a list started and so we can see who might be interested. Wrapping your own rods can save you some money and you will get a great satisfaction from fishing your own rod.

This will be the first time we have done this so we will have to learn as we go along. Let us know what you think.

Thanks ahead of time to Mojo for volunteering to run this.

Frank

Betty, I told Frank that I would enlist the help of others. Now that you've posted on this thread, your experience is welcome. I ain't taking the blame for all of this!

I am a rod builder, so if there are things I can help out with, I'd be glad to do it.
