surf rod tutorial?

Rate this topic

5 posts in this topic

I'm thinking of building a 1-piece surf rod this winter (conventional). Are there any books/videos/articles available with step by step instruction & pictures?

 

This will be only my 2nd foray into rod building. I built flyrod last winter & really enjoyed doing it. Am I biting off more than I can chew w/ this one?

Vinny,

 

Follow the 4-part rod building series of articles on this site.

 

The most important points in building a surf rod are guide placement, butt length and matching the correct blank to the fisherman.

 

This board can help you with these points.

Does anybody ever do these seminars or rodcrafter meetings further south? Ya'll are welcome to come down and teach us stuff; just don't bring your guns, torches, carpet bags or expect us to start talking fast!

Marty,

 

You should have come to Orlando last October for the Florida seminar.

 

However, I do have some great friends and rodbuilding buddies in Virginia I could recommend that you connect with.
