Rod building help

Postby Paulb » Thu Mar 03, 2011 11:17 am

Been building rods for several years now, just letting all know if anyone is thinking on building a rod and needs any advice or needs a repair eg. broken ring etc. I'd be more then glad to help out.
Tight lines,

Been building fly rods mate, built myself far more than I'll ever use, not a pro but built a few for ebay sale and friends and family etc. Am toying with the idea of building a nice spin/lure rod, but know in me heart of hearts i'll seldom use it.
