Default Re: building own rod

Hey Griff.......

my rod kit should be here by Wedn. .... I ordered a 7'6" 2pc 3wt graphite from , I will build this one for my daughter for Christmas. I also ordered her one of those new ross flystart reels from LRO to get her going (maybe Dad can get his orvis set back) ........

I also was bored waiting for it to get here so I went out and picked up some wood and am finishing up a rod winding device. If it works out I'll bring it to class in Jan. and show you. I've patterned it after one I saw in catalogs, so we'll see how it works.....

ps.....the rod was a Matrix I believe
Heaven seems a little closer .........on a Smoky Mountain stream.......
