I am 28 years old and living in Clarkston WA. This last summer my little girl who is 5 went fishing with me up the north fork Clearwater and a hour into the day I handed her my 7 1/2 4wt. Her 4th cast went right were I was hopping she was going to put it and a 15inch cutty was in her hand soon enough needless to say she is now hooked and asked me if she could fly fish now and give her Barbie pole to her little brother. So I am looking into building rods for my family but I am going to play around with cork first and try a few different things before I try to get serious with the building. I have found site after site with all with great cork on Google. I have also dug into this forum and found some great sites/people on were to get good quality cork. I guess my question would be is there a site I could order from and get cheap cork that I would be able to play with and not feel bad if I mess it up? Thank you all for your help, and I’m sure that this won’t be the last question I have.
