    Default Father's Day present for my father

    I have been searching the web for a while and it looks like this place is one of the authorities on fly rod building.

    I have never made a rod, but would like to try my hand at it. I am hoping to make a 8 weight saltwater flyrod to give to my father on Father's Day.

    I have a friend who is going to help with the build and has all of the tools, but he is a bit out of his element when searching for components on the web.

    I have visited a bunch of the links for manufacturers and my head is swimming with numbers, etc. If you have the time, could you help me with a shopping list (what/where)?

    I am hoping to keep all of the components under $150, so I guess the namebrand blanks will be out of reach.


    My father is a Notre Dame grad, so I am thinking of going with as much green/blue and gold coloring as possible.

    Thanks for any assistance you can give.
