rods rated for extra heavy action. We can also customize a class especially for you.
In each class you will find the spine on the rod blank, fit the handle, reel seat and fore grip to the rod blank and glue them on. You will
then properly space the guides on the rod blank and hand wrap each with thread.
After the class, rods will be taken to my shop in Anoka for gluing. (Note: Class participants are welcome to
visit the shop and glue their own rods.
) When finished, you can pick up your rod at the school or business where
you took your class. Your new custom rod will be customized with the your name, the length of the rod, and the action rating -- at no
