Building your own rod adds enormously to the pleasures of landing a big catch, but beginners and even more experienced anglers are often deterred by the vast range of blanks, rings, handles and fittings, from taking the plunge into home rod building.
This manual provides in-depth guidance on selecting and designing rods for all major branches of freshwater and saltwater fishing. It discusses pike, tench, carp, cod, roach, long-range casting, uptide boat fishing, line class ratings and reservoir trout, as well as step-by step details of blank preparation, ring spacings, handles, test curve assessment, whipping and finishing.
