The latest project that i've been researching is fly rod building.
Everyone who has been fly fishing for a while has told me that the best rods they've ever used was one that they had built.
i have no knowledge of the first thing to do....but i have been reading everything i can get my hands on.
i've also found a lot of good deals on rod building kits online. The price range has been all over the map and it seems like a lot of rod companies sell rod building kits which have all of the same materials, but the price seems to go up if it's by a popular company such as G-Loomis or Sage.
i want an 11 or 12 weight rig to be able to handle tarpon. i'd also like to have another 8 weight. i want a 9 ft, 4 piece rod and i want to spend under $150.00.
Mama's friends dad (this is like your next door neighbors cousins sisters college roommates uncle) knows how to build fly rods so i'm sure i'll be enlightened soon enough......
