    It looks great! I am about to practice on an old rod before I do my first real build. I hope mine comes out as good as yours!!!

    This was my first fishing rod build. I made a fly rod with a 9 foot, 5 weight Rainshadow RX7 blank.
    Rainshadow makes very nice blanks for the money.

    No kit. I chose all the parts individually.

    Wow, very nice. I'm surfing the Rod Building site thinking about getting into this also. You may have sent me to the dark side. Did you start with a kit? If so which one? Again, nice job!
