Greetings to all. Been lurking here for a while, and finally signed up a couple of months ago. I've been building rods for about two years, and I'm about thirty rods into it; a fairly equal mix of spinning and casting rods. No fly rods.
I've spent quite a bit of time on this site, trying to pick up some of the knowledge on tap here regarding fly rods, and I have a lot of questions. I'll put those in the appropriate sections.
As a moderator on another fishing forum, I have to commend the staff of this site. You folks maintain a very high level of civility here. Either you have an extremely polite group of members, or you are very vigilant in cracking down on the hotheads.
In either case, my hat's off to you.
