I still want to have a gathering of Alaska Rodbuilders.
I have time reserved at the Peters Creek American Legion Post 33 on 27 February 2010. I intend on starting at 10:00 am there will Coffee and doughnuts. Once I get a feel for how many are attending I will make plans for lunch.
All expeirence levels are encouraged to attend. First timers come out to get a feel for what rodbuilding is all about.
I am looking forward to meeting more rodbuilders from the area. This is how all of us can build our skills as rodbuilders. I have learned more from experienced builders, than from any book or DVD.
Bring your rods down to show off your work. I will have a stand set up to display the rods, and we can lay them out on a table for people to see as well.
Topics that will be covered are
Basic Rodbuilding (if anyone present is new to rod building)
Decorative Wraps basics and tips and tricks.
Different Guide Configurations, with a casting demonstration.
I will have 3 rods built up with 3 different guide configurations. We will take them out in the parking lot and see which one casts best.
If there is something you would like to see demonstrated or something you would like to demonstrate let me know and we will work something out.
