ROD BUILDING CLASS

We will be holding our rod building class again this year, perhaps for the last time! Participating members will meet on March 7th to select the kind of rod they want to build, from ultra light 7’, 2 & 3 weight to 10 ft #8-#10 weight rods for Steelhead and Bone Fishing.

COST: After members pay for their own rod blanks, handles, reel seats and guides order, the club will charge $25 for instruction and use of supplies [e.g., epoxy] and equipment [for example motors and supports for rotating the blanks once coatings have been applied].

The first Rod Making Class is on March 7th to select and order rod building parts.

Meeting dates are as follows:

April 10 (Wed) 6 PM  - attach rod handles and reel seats; mark the positions for guides  April 18 (Thur) 6 PM - begin wrapping the guides and hook keeper; apply the color sealer
April 24 (Wed) 6 PM -
apply epoxy coatings to the rods and allow them to slowly turn on motorized rod holders.
May 1 (Wed) 6 PM - continue with epoxy coatings
