There are some other things you will need, have to have, or get because you can. You should get a wrapping bench of some sort (hand powered to start). You will also need thread and finish products. You will want a rod turner / dryer for the epoxy work. I suggest an alcohol torch. Epoxy is not our friend. Rodbuilding is addictive. I built four Batson Forecast 6' 6" 2wt this year; one for myself, my daughter, granddaughter, and boss. It casts great and is a blast with bluegill and small bass. Fortunately, I've just scratched the surface. Ask some of the others on the board for information and help. There are some talented builders here.
