    If you have ever wanted to learn how to build a custom fly rod, this is a great opportunity.
    Steve is a good guy and good teacher, and it is just another excuse to hang out at the shop with the guys!
    Jump on this if you are on the fence.

    Have two 4wts in progress (TMF and Cane), that I will never part with (or at least not for the first month or two). My goal is to eventually have several 4wts in cane, graphite, and glass. The glass is next.

    Sooooo tempting. Since I only own 7 or 8 rods, and none are custom built, I am clearly in need. :D

    If you do a March class and there is some decent stillwater open, I might just bring the trailer and camp for a week.
