The good thing about the internet is the wealth of information, which in turn is also it's downside. When anybody asks me about getting into building cane rods, I say the hardest part is getting started. One easy thing you could do is order an inexpensive kit, and then let it sit on your desk until you decided to start putting it together. I bet you will get to it sooner than later. Go to one of the forums and ask what a good beginner kit would be for what you are wanting to fish, pick one of the options, and order it. From then on, there is no looking back.
