New to the idea of Rod building

I recently viewed a DVD from the library on fly rod building. I am feeling a little lost and was wondering where to start. I have zero experience so expect I would start with the basics and build on it. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
A great cheap blank is the forcast from batson. The best way is to start a check list of parts you will need. The dvd should have gone over what all they where using.
You can go cheaper than the Batson. Call Dave from Sevier Manufacturing and pick up a blank from him. I love every blank I've bought from him, and my 8wt blank was only 18 bucks.
