Build Your Own Custom Fishing Rod
There’s that old saying about teaching a man to fish, but this course lets students go a step beyond fishing to building their own fishing rods. We’re not talking sapling, string, and safety pin; under the guidance of professional rod builder Kris Kristufek, students will build a technically perfect spin or casting rod up to 7-feet long, using high quality American-made materials. There will be plenty of opportunities to personalize the rod with a choice of blanks, action/power, colors and inscriptions. This is an intensive course in which all necessary tools and supplies are furnished. Over three days, students will learn how to build a fishing rod from carbon fiber, attach the handles and reel seats, find the spine, place guides, wrap guides, apply epoxy finish, and learn basic decorative thread cross wrapping. Why settle for a big box store rod when you can build your own?

We truly believe in the power of craft to build community, and we know that community is needed more than ever in times like these. However, the need to stay healthy and protect our friends and neighbors is the most critical priority.
