Finally blundered my way through building my first rod, a 4 piece Forecast 5wt. I have two more kits as well. This will be a backup or loaner rod but I'm looking forward to trying it out. It took a long time due to fear of the unknown, the learning curve, problems with the wrap finish epoxy and I had to make some stuff. I made a 18 rpm drying/finishing turner and a heated drying box.
Now for the 9' 4wt Forecast with single foot guides, then the H&H 8wt IM6. Or maybe the 8wt about a 6wt, don't have one yet..well, after the 2wt...
I'm in trouble, right?
