    St. Croix rod blank and rod building kit for sale

    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.

    Also included:

    13 cork rings
    Black hookkeep
    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
    Pacific Bay Chrome hialoy N-Guide
    Pacific Bay Hard chrome fly tip top
    Pacific Bay snake guides
    2 Calvin rod wrappers
    4 spools of Gudebrod nylon rodwinding thread - 2 gold and 2 green
    Tip sizer
    Burnishing tool
    Awl
    Snippers

    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.

    Just so tempting, one more fly rod and I'll be sleeping in the dog house for the rest of the year.

    Okay folks, price lowered to $170 shipped in the USA. Book included. BTW, the rod is a SCIV blank, not SVIV. That was a typo.
