I posted this on the old Sniffer, in the fly fishing forum instead of the rod building section.
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.

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!

No kit. I chose all the parts individually.

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!!!
