fly rod building kits
Let’s face it if you are looking for gifts for fly fishermen and women they likely already have more fly fishing gear than the local fly shop.
If you are looking for a unique gift for the fly angler in your life – or perhaps for yourself! The satisfaction of building and fishing your own home built fly rod is hard to beat.
While fly rod building is becoming more popular the big challenge is the bewildering decisions that need to be made when purchasing fly rod building supplies and components. Making the right choices that all fit together to result in a great fly rod is no simple task – even for experienced fly rod builders.
Building a fly rod is no mean feat, selecting the correct matching components can be an intimidating exercise alone.
Fly rod blanks, cork, grips, fitting reel seats, choosing the correct fly fishing guides, stripper guides, and glues all have to be selected very carefully. Then there are considerations on fly rod guide spacings and how to spine a fly rod blank.
And after all that – How do you actually go about building a fly rod? The answer is a fly rod building kit.
