Build the perfect European nymphing rod with Mike McGuire. Starting with the October workshop we will hand out the rods and start the process. The goal is to have a finished rod in less than 6 weeks.

Total cost is $125


  • 2/3 wt. 11ft blank (black)
  • Cork grip
  • Reel seat
  • Guides, winding check and tip top.
