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”:) November 30, 2018 at 3:19 pm #2181 cassio.silva.txParticipant 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.

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. Scott Author Posts Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
