    Tom Kirkman's book would be a good place for you to start. Call me at 703-491-4516 and we can talk about it.

    I agree Dale Clemens' book "Advanced Custom Rod Building" is great and will give you more information than you may want. Also I suggest that you subscribe to RodMaker Magazine, published by Tom Kirkman (www.rodmakermagazine,com). This will give you info on suppliers, how-to ideas, rod building techniques, and help for beginners. Kirkman has pubished a very good book on rod buildng that I refer to often. As for suppliers I go to the Mud Hole Custom Rod Building and Fishing Tackle Supplies ([url=http://www.mudhole.com]or Custom Tackle Supply (www.customtackle.com). If you are not sure what to order, call them and they will help. Their catalogs have all that you will need.

    Where are you located? There is a club called tristate that has classes for beginners in January and the class is 4 saturdays in January and you come out with a nice rod and you learn from some good teachers.

    Ric-Go to the top where it says private messages and click on that. That is what they mean by bmail. Good luck with those rods. I have been making my own rods for a while and I find it very relaxing.
