As near as I can tell, Mudhole doesn't have any glass fly blanks.

The Swift/Epic glass kits sound like exactly what you want and have a very good reputation. They are quite expensive, however.

Janns Netcraft has a nice little fiberglass blank that makes a good 5/6 fly rod: http://www.jannsnetcraft.com/fiberglass-rod-blanks/029710400009.aspx

Anglers Workshop has a really wide selection of blanks including fly rod blanks. Can't remember what they have in glass, but they seem to carry more brands and more selection than anybody. I just got a PacBay Quickline blank in 6 wt. Haven't started building it yet.

As Jim said above: proofflyfishing offers complete rodbuilding kits for glass rods. Also flyrodcrafters also offers complete glass rod building kits. The kits from both of these companies are inexpensive, but decent quality.

Hey Larry, I didn't know you hung out here. You might as well move to Texas, since you fish down here so much cheers.

Hey Jim,
If I could talk my wife into it I would. 200 to 300 miles more southward would make my winters more enjoyable and my joints less achy.

I enjoy both the TFO Finesse Glass TFO Fly Rod Blanks, and the Lamiglas rods, which I do order from Mud Hole at: Mud Hole Lamiglas Fly Rod Blanks
