Default Rod building forum.

I was wondering if there is any chance of adding a "Custom rod building" forum here? We've got a bunch of knowledge here for everything else.
So maybe we could add to the knowledge base by adding another forum.

What'cha folks think?

I've built one rod myself, but I have yet to get sufficient use out of it. (7'6" 8/9wt with Tennessee grip and Spinning guides. Anybody wanna sponsor Cliff's first snook trip?)

Also have an old glass rod I need to finish so it can get some use.

I bet a Rod Building forum would get some use.

OK.... NAFFF now has its own rod building forum... Click Here

If the activity is high, I will separate the forum into several sub-catagories.

Hi Fish Bones,

I posted a thread on the new Rod building Forum and it did not show up on the home page as a new post. Did I screw up or is there a problem with the Forum?

Frank

The forum itself is working. However, it is not posting the new posts on the home page. Neither is the Daily Fly Fishing News. That is a problem that I'm trying to figure out.

Thanks, Steve

Thank You Steve.
Too bad we couldn't have got this going last fall and Winter, it may not get a ton of traffic until we all get couped up again.

Let's have some fun!!! Thanks again.

Steve, fyshstykr just posted and it did show up as a new post and Email notification was sent. So I guess you fixed it.
