New Club Project – Rod building and or rod repair class
Want to build your own fly rod? Already have a rod that needs a little repair?
Sign up for this year’s Rod Build/Repair Class.
Three sessions and a little homework is all it takes.
Step 1. Define your rod and order your parts. (with our help and club discount)
Step 2. Prep the cork handles, reel seats, blanks and learn how to tie on the guides.
Step 3. Finalize your guides and reel seats.
Step 4. Put on a big grin as you catch fish on your handiwork.
We’ll meet for a couple of hours on a Saturday or Sunday and walk you through the process step by step, provide the initial instruction, and let you borrow jigs for you to work on at home. Then we’ll reconvene a week or two later to finish up.
What’s it cost?
The CLUB gets a discount when purchasing the components (rod blanks, guides, rod seat and thread). We also provide all the consumables, like epoxy, brushes, mixing cups.
You determine the cost by how high end you want to go with things like rod blanks or rod seats. That said, you can spend less than $100.00 and still have a great rod that will last you a lifetime and make you smile with each fish you catch.
Where is it?
One of our members is graciously providing his home in Mountain Park (off I-5 and 217) for the building and instruction on the rods.
When is it?
We will have a project planning meeting in a few weeks to help you decide if this works for you. It’s a fun project.
