i am also going to get the spine finder
cabelas premium rod building set and some other things

could you guys tell me if there is anything else i might need?
I found the PT blank tom be a wet noodle and could't cast it but if you like slow action rods you'll probably be ok.

I ended up buying a damon rods 6'6" 2wt that is a true fast action. Also check Dan Craft's web site as he also make great quality rods <>

Then get your self a great book on rodbuilding ... Either Tom Kirkman's Rod building guide
or the other I use is by L.A. Garcia.
