Thought I'd say hello.  I'm a hobby rod builder.  Maybe built about 20 fly rods and a couple of spincasting rods for kids.  Fish coldwater here in Colorado and warmwater when I travel.  Never done salt, but hey you never know.  Thought I'd join to see what's going on here, learn about building and suppliers etc.  

 

Thanks!

 

John

Welcome, I'm a hobbyist of sorts in general, about most things these days. Been retired going on two years here this fall. It's way different than the stressful life of meeting the demands of corporate America, plus trying to just do your job lol !  Rod building is just something I enjoy doing when I have a hankering for a new rod of some sort, not sure I'd even call it a hobby really. It started years ago as rod maintenance and someone gave me a glass fly rod blank he wasn't ever going to build so I did. Some interesting things come up here at the forum from time to time, enjoy !

 

Somewhere around the site is a list of sponsors who support the site, it's good to give them some business, if they have what you need. Just sayin. But we do all use various suppliers.

Thanks for the welcome. I think I've found most of the major suppliers but I am looking forward to seeing the components people use in their rods. I know there might be some small shops or much lesser know people creating some interesting things :). Ex people machining reel seats on a small scale etc. will be fun to see builds people post!

I conduct all my sales on a personal basis thru email, thus alleviating issues due to size. application and other factors. I just do not believe in the click and ship method, thus I have very few problems related to the sale of my products. PM me your email address and I will get you the pricing info, as well as the available wood for inserts
