So for fathers day my son and wife got me a rod that I could build for my new baby boy. This would be the second rod that I will have built, my first was a g.loomis GL3, so all I need to do is go out and get the parts. Being a little slow to jump on things I have yet to go out and buy all the things I need. I first I thought I would just buy one of those kits on cabelas or some other site, and then I thought I would do up a more custom type of rod. So I am wondering if people have suggestions for blanks. Now my boy is currently less than a year and this will be his first rod. This also means I have time to do work on this project. I am thinking a 9ft 4wt, something I can take him out to rivers for some dry fly fishing when he is a little older. I am open to the idea of a 5wt, but I want to make sure a young kids can cast it without problems. Also, I would like to do a feather in lay so if there is a good tutorial out there please pass it my way. Thanks!
