A few years ago I decided to make my own fly rod. I bought the materials and got started but things came along and I never finished it. I've decided that I'm no longer interested in completing this project so I'm putting it all up for sale. Here's what I've got.
The rod is a St. Croix SVIV graphite blank - 8'6" 4 piece 4 wt. This is the same blank the St. Croix Legend Ultra is made from.
I've put a Struble Deluxe G uplocking reel seat with nice wood (not sure of the species) on it with one cork ring and I've attached the tip top. Otherwise it's unfinished.
13 cork rings
Flex Coat thermal plastic adhesive
Flex Coat epoxy brush cleaner
Flex Coat finish
Flex Coat epoxy glue
Flex Coat color coded syringes - set of 2
Flex Coat guide foot adhesive
Flex Coat color preserver
Pacific Bay Black hialoy N-guide

I'm asking $200 shipped. I will accept Paypal. To buy all of this separately is well over this amount. Also, if you're interested I have a copy of the book "Handcrafting a Graphite Fly Rod" by L.A. Garcia which takes you step-by-step through the building process. It's $12.44 new at Amazon. I'll throw it in for free with the kit.
Have a look at the pics.
