    I like the measure net. When I take my nephews out we have contests the biggest fish is one on them. Easy to measure and the fish doesn't have to leave the water.

    This turned into something a bit more complex than I can handle. I think I'll stick to building a fly rod and buy a blank to start a spin rod on. Thanks for the info.

    some people use citrus strip. I used the edge of exacto knife. You draw the knife at less than a 90 degree angle just try not to gouge the bamboo. It didn't take me long to do scrape mine.

    What do you end up doing? I use BSS 1 and LA1 on most of my small wt rods and don't have a problem. I thought Orvis used the Bellinger seats on the current superfine trout bum(3wt).
