I have a few rod blanks that I would like to donate in the hope of encouraging new people to the sport. Ideally they will go to children or young adults who have an interest in fly fishing and or rod building who also have a need. I found the sport in a similar fashion and hope I can pay it forward. These are new blue/green medium action rods good for beginners to learn the basics of casting and presentation. Please budget at least $40 for components. I have 1 basic set of double foot snake guides, tip top, winding check and hook keeper for the 4 or 5 weight. I also have a very hip set of holographic double foot guides, tip top and hook keeper for the 7 weight. I will also include a spool of blue Gudebrod thread and a chunk of tip top hot melt adhesive. No cost, I will pick up the shipping. If lacking the components will keep someone from realizing a dream, I will supply cork, reel seats, guides, glue, line and reels...whatever it takes.
