I'm considering building a short fiberglass fly rod for the driftless area of the midwest: Northeast Iowa, Southeast Wisconsin, Southwest Minnesota. I live in Chicago in a one bedroom apartment with my wife and infant daughter. I grew up fishing a 9ft graphite 6wt flyrod on trout streams in Montana and have managed to break fish off on it in 4 different states since leaving home. So, I'm hoping to build on a lamiglass 6.5 or 7 ft 3/4 wt blank.

I'll post a topic related to this build on one of the main boards but wanted to introduce myself first. If you have any advice in response to this post, I'm all ears!
