There were some good books referenced, like one by Skip Morris, in an earlier thread. Search might work to find them. Smitty of the Rodbuilder's Workshop carries the book but when I went down there I found there was no substitute for wisdom and experience. I left with the blank, hardware and no book.
Working with Smitty, I am now ready to put the guides onto my 4-pc 10wt 9ft Sage VPS! Man I love the thing. I am constantly whipping that guideless rod with it's new handle in the yard.
Next I'll be wrapping the guides, finishing it - should be throwing a line by May!
Let's take Jim Whalen's lead with the RodRack http://flyfishingforum.com/expertise/rodrack
and do our own rod building thing. The VFS site is done really nicely and the pics are awesome but I think our own experiences will speak volumes. I will start by posting my experiences shortly, got some pics to post, etc.
