Default Considering building a couple of rods.

Got into flyfishing a few months ago and now have an itch to build a rod for my father for his birthday. I know that it will probably take a couple of rods to at least get relatively decent at it, so I am going to try and build a few for myself prior to tackling his.

I already have a 5 weight, so I am thinking of building a 3 weight Freshwater and an 8 weight Saltwater for myself. Afterwards, I will make my father's 8 weight Saltwater.

What consideration with regards to materials do I need to make when choosing for Freshwater vs Saltwater?

Also, I know a couple of resources for materials, but any recommendations are always appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
