What type of guides?

Discussion in 'Rod Building' started by firedog, Aug 13, 2004.

  1. I am getting ready to build a couple rods, a 9' 7wt and a 9' 4 wt. I have built lots rods, just never a fly rod. I basically want some advice on what tpe of guides to put on them. Should I use single foot guides or double foot? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? What other things do I need to be concerned about with building a Fly rod?
     
  2. I either of these rods will be used to cast a lot, consider single foot SIC guides. They are very slick, lighter, and nearly indestructable. I have a 9ft 4wt with them and it casts very well.

    Roper,

    Life goes on, enjoy it...
