    I've gotten good, inexpensive blanks from Ye Olde English Fly shop.

    My favorite site is Proof Fly Fishing. Blanks, hardware, tools, finishes etc you need. Snake Brand guides are worth paying a bit more for.

    Hi, Yooper. I can't help with the shopping side of things but, if you're new-ish to rod building you might like to take a look at our European sister site, FFFUK. It, too, has a rod building forum and the guys there gave me much invaluable advice when I started building last year.

    Good luck with your build. If you haven't yet seen it, there's a rod building forum on this site, too. If you fancy talking us through it, it's here.

    Proof fly fishing is good. Custom fly rod crafters. J Cook custom fly rods. I have ordered from all three with good results
