Sure. The nice thing about a kit when you are first starting is everything is sized to fit together and you have everything you need (except epoxy, tools, jig and a drying motor). You might want to go through their on line tutorial too.I was looking at that "Start up kit". For thoose of you that do this, is that a good kit for a beginner?
Well I had an expert teacher, Daniel Boone (Nantahala Fly Company) - he made it easy. I just learned last year and have made several rods now. It just takes some patience and a little practice to learn the basics. Of course to get really good at it and make them fancy patterns like Pier Dweller does, takes a lot of practice.How hard is it to actually build your own rod?
