    Haven’t posted much but figured I would start. I recently completed building a 7 weight fly rod on a Blue Halo 3 piece fiberglass blank. Took it out and tested it. Seems to be a “fish magnet”:)

    I bet a good size speck or red would be real fun on a glass rod. What is the cost of building that rod? I’ve been curious about building my own, do you have any recommendation of books, website or other resources.

    Cassio,

    The rod is fun to fish and I plan to take it to the Guadeloupe this week to try out.

    It cost about $225 for materials to build. I did use titanium stripping guides and Recoil titanium snake guides. The blank is from Blue Halo. They have a website.

    There are many websites for materials and info. Just do a search. Fishing Tackle unlimited also has supplies.
