I just completed my first rod build. I've had the blank for a couple of years now but only really started building this rod over the last few months. I made many mistakes along the way but I managed to fix most of them and the build came out pretty clean in the end. Still flawed though! My colour scheme is bold but I like something a little different and loud. The colour scheme began from restoring my old bauer fly reel (last pic), which I had re-anodised blue and silver and then purchased an orange agate stripping guide.

Rod building is addictive and I'm already planning my next build which is a little six footer vintage lamiglass fly rod for my son. I expect the colour scheme on that one will be pretty rad too!

cheers,
Jason.
