This year we are going to build a very versatile and fun to fish 11 foot 6 weight switch rod.

Building a rod is not hard and no experience is needed for this class. We have put together a complete kit with a nice discount that has everything you need to complete the rod and even includes a tube to store the completed rod. 

With the guidance of our experience rod builders you can finish your rod in 2 or 3 workshops. We start this class at the January 2017 workshop.

Total cost for the whole kit is $275
