Gold Country Fly Rod Building Classes

We get into fly fishing for different reasons. For some, it is the craft. We like the idea of catching fish with flies we tie or create. Some of us like to build our own fly rods. We catch fish on a rod we’ve built with flies we’ve tied. Pretty cool.

The GCFF is offering a fly rod building course. You can build a rod of your choice. It could be a dry fly presentation rod, or a rod for fishing a small creek. Maybe you need a dedicated nymphing rod. For the people interested in fishing a two handed rod, maybe you’d like to build a switch or spey rod.

Is building your own rod less expensive than purchasing one from a fly shop. You can save approximately 25% to 50% depending on the blank you choose. We can help you choose the fly rod blank and components to build a top quality fly rod that you will be proud of knowing that you also built it yourself.

We will guide you through the process step by step. Contact Mike Williams or Clay Hash if you would like more information or want to sign up for a rod building session.

You must be a member in good standing with a signed waiver to take a class or clinic. Come to a general meeting and join!
