Those interested in building their own fly rod or perhaps repairing one, can learn everything needed. Several members have built a range of rods based on kits from Bloke Rods and these can be made available to try. Bloke rods have a terrific reputation and rod kits costing around £130 and sell for twice that as finished rods.
