Bob -

Thanks! Not only am I inspired to get going on this project, I am impressed to meet someone who has built split bamboo!

I've been an active angler all my life and have done more than my share coast to coast - but have never built a flyrod... until this winter.

I am planning on building a simple wooden frame out of boards with with a spool holder perpendicular to the alignment of the padded (felt) grooves.

It the distance between the spool and the blank important if the tension is correct?
