Thanks, Betty. It looks like you copied my bookmarks list into your post. I had forgotten about Golden Witch.Bobby,
See if this will give you any help:
I have NO financial interest in any of these suppliers. I just have used them for years, and years, and know them to be good. In the Hook and Hackle catalogue, and the Mud Hole catalogue, are some really good instructions on rod building. Enjoy browsing each of these sites ... bring a kleenex or two to wipe the drool off your chins!
