Under the Seat Blank

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic

I've got a cheap Diawa fly/spin rod that takes down into 6 pieces. Keep it under my truck seat for when I have a job close to water biggrin.gif .

 

I'd like to build a nicer replacement for it. Do any of you know of a 5 or 6 piece, 6 1/2'-7' blank that would be suitable for 4#-8# spinning & 5 or 6 weight fly fishing?

 

The one I have you just turn the reel seat/handle section around for either fly or spinning. I figure I'd have to use one of the handles/grips w/the moveable spin rings.

 

Watcha think?

Cabelas has a 5 peice "stowaway" blank they offer.

 

I almost allways have a 4 peice spinner in the truck, just in case wink.gif .

I found the perfect blank to make a take-down spin/fly combo. Dan Craft has a 7-piece 9' blank that he removes the bottom section from to make a 6 piece 7 1/2' that's just right! $40.00 wink.gif

 

I asked him how he recommended building the seat & he had a great idea. He's sending me 2 butt sections--one for a fly reel seat & handle & one for the spinner. wink.gif

 

He's got a lot of stuff for flyrod building at real good prices. You can check him out by typing his name in your search engine. Nice guy! icon14.gif
