Rod Building

At least once a year we have a ROD BUILDING CLASS that lasts for about 6-8 weekend classes that are held in the clubhouse. The course includes rod kit selection, and all tools and supplies necessary to complete your very own custom rod.  Instruction is provided by our own master rod builder, Rick Proulx, and includes teaching of all the skills needed to construct your rod to include rod blank selection, determination of the blanks spine, guide placement, handle prep, and the difficult skill of guide wrapping.  Few things are more thrilling than catching your first fish on the rod you built and of course, a fly you tied.
