Thanks for the kudos guys. I bought a Cabela's kit and replaced the guides with single foot guides. I can't wait to get it out on the water and play with it.

Beautiful work on the Cabela's rod, you're going to have fun breaking that new rod in this summer! Do you have open water below the dam?

I do have open water below the dam here. I am thinking about breaking it in this weekend. I can't wait.

Very nice! As I sit and contemplate my first build I too have considered single foot guides. But since I want to build a 7wt I am not sure if single foot guides would be too delicate on a rod I intend to use for reefing bass out of heavy weeds. I do want to build some smaller weight rods (have a 3 wt now but thinking of adding maybe a 2, or some day an entire set 0, 1, 2, 4 and on ) and I will probably experiment with single foot guides on those.

Beautifully done!! Now you'll find how hard it is to concentrate on the fishing when you're watching the new rod! Let us know how it does!
Again, great job!

I finally got it out on the water today. I hooked into 10 or so fish. I had a blast. Life is great catching fish on a rod that you built.
