i'm building my first fly rod and wonder if a grip and handle pattern library has been created anywhere online?
i am looking for a template for the cigar shaped fly rod handle and any variations.
one alternative is visiting sporting goods stores and testing the grips on different fly rods, Finding one that works for me and tracing the shape on a piece of paper. however, there may be some standard lengths/diameters that can be found online in the form of templates?
thanks for any input.
