Common Questions About Rod Building and Why You Should Ask Them

Jul 28, 2008
If you're one of the many fishers who have wondered what it would be like to do some rod building, but you always had some unanswered questions about the process now you can the answer you need. Below we've compiled some of the most commonly asked rod building questions and supplied the answers so you'll finally have access to enough information to decide whether you're ready to take the customization plunge.

Is Rod Building Time-Consuming or Difficult?

The answer to both of these rod building questions is no. Generally, constructing a fishing rod once you've gathered all of the materials takes just a couple of hours. You will have to let the finished product set for a while to let the finish set but we're not talking about an all day or all week activity here. It's something you could easily start doing on the weekends.

As far as difficult goes, it's not as challenging as you might think. In fact, some Boy Scout troops have start doing rod building activities. If you're worried about the challenge, get some guides and see for yourself how simple it can be. You'll probably be surprised.

Is Rod Building Expensive?

That's a difficult question to answer because it really depends on you. Because you have full control over what you add to the finished product, you are the only one who decides how expensive it's going to be. On average, most builders do spend more on their equipment than other people but that's because they want the highest quality components they can get and that does add to the price significantly.

The first time may also cost a little more because you'll need to purchase a few pieces of equipment, such as a utility knife and a brush for applying the epoxy that will be used repeatedly for all of your rod building.

What are the Benefits of Rod Building?

The biggest benefit is that you'll end up with a finished product that is exactly what you want. If you want something a little heavier, you can make it happen. If you prefer ceramic guides, you can have them. If you want silk thread instead of nylon, you can have it. That's the beauty of the process - you make all of the decisions.

Another benefit is that you should also see an improvement in your performance and you'll have a fishing rod you can show off to others. Plus, going through the process can be fun, especially if you're working on the project with other avid fishers.

How can I Get Started?

The best way to start rod building is to by a guide. You can read through the steps and see what is required in the process, including the specific materials you'll need to purchase for the project. Once you've done that, you'll just need to start buying the items and preparing your work space.
