Appologies up front as this has likely been asked 1,000,000 times...

I am building a 9ft 5wt 4pc TL Johnson rod and am curious about the guide spacing chart ive found ( http://www.flyfishin...n-guide-spacing )

It places the 5th ferrule really close to the male section of the second piece. What to do????

And for the bonus, when measuring, say my first easurent is 5 in from the tip, do i place the guide so the middle of the guide lies exactly in the middle of the 5 in mark?

Thanks guys... I perused the internet and only found info about incorporating guides on the female section into a ferrule wrap...
