  1. I know, this isn't about fly tying, but its definitely similar. catching a fish on a rod you built yourself is just as rewarding (if not more rewarding) than catching a fish on a fly you tied. I haven't ever built a fly rod before, and this turned out pretty good. I thought I would give it a try. Let me know what you guys think. I know already of a few mistakes I made, but the rod came out looking great anyway! In the video I show the unboxing, grip and but section instillation, rod wrapping, guide placement, and epoxying of the rod. I bought this kit from the Hook & Hackle, and they sell some really nice products for a great price! Also they were very helpful with my questions. You can get this exact kit at: http://store.hookhack.com/HH-Xi-FLY-ROD-KITS/products/1359/
  2. Hi, I'm new to the forum having just discovered this looking for information. Recently got back into flyfishing last spring after hooking up with PHWFF. Over the last year I've picked up a decent 6wt setup (TFO 6wt 9' and a Ross Evo Lt 3) and a decent 6wt setup for my 13 yo son as well. I've been given the chance to build a rod with PHWFF this winter and was contemplating building a heavier 8wt setup for possible coastal trips, but thinking more on a 5wt 10' seeing as how I should be able to use the Ross reel I have with it. My question is, the reel is rated as a 5-7wt (I have 6wt line on it at the moment) and I'm figuring the extra foot on the 5wt (as opposed to a 9') may help balance out this setup better. Would a 4-5wt be more optimal? I'm probably way overthinking this and probably just trying to justify a 5wt versus the 8wt, but I'll get more use out of the 5wt fishing streams and rivers of OH, KY, TN where I live.
