I am curious as to how many of you would be interested in a separate forum dedicated to rod building? The DFW Metroplex has lost three of its best rod building teachers in the last eight years, Norm Goheen, Col. John Bradford, and Malcolm Duke. I have some questions regarding rod building to which I cannot find answers. I do follow a rod building group on facebook, but I don't seem to find the help for which I am looking. Mud Hole just wants to sell me products, which drives me crazy, and Cody is a good customer of theirs. Some other businesses have given up their rod building aspect, such as J. Stockard. I thought I created a poll, but I can't find it, so I'm just curious.

Here's to bent tips and happy days!

I'd follow it. I'm a newbie, building my third and fourth rods right now.

If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space!

I’m considering getting my gear down and building rods again.
