James your kindness deserves great reward because it showed selflessness and a willingness to help others that are trying their best but need a little help at times. Your rod wrapping seminar was an outstanding event and your helping people with repairs far exceeded what was expected. Thus, I was inspired and moved by this act.

i agree with Red. G-Dude, thanks for introducing us to the world of rod-wrapping. too bad i was so intent on following on the footsteps of mel and tried going after stripers that i came to class tardy. also it was great to meet with some fellow msgboard legends.

Much obliged you guys. I was expecting more folks to show up and get their rods fixed. But there wasn't much of a queue for rod work. The rod I had in the jig is shown below. It's getting it's first coat of finish on it. "Mango Chutney" is the name I gave it... yeah, another food.

It's getting ready for a rockfish trip soon.

I agree. To see the rod go from a blank to a semi-completed rod was very interesting...so interesting in fact that I've decided to try it out myself.

For now I've taken a small rod that GrammarPolice had and stripped it down. I'll be heading on down to the Rod Rack this weekend to pick up some supplies and probably a book on the topic.

Depending on how that goes, I'll probably try making one from start to finish.

Thanks James for introducing me to another element of fishing. I'm sure it will come in handy on those days when I can't get out to do some fishing.

Hey G-Dude,
does this seem like an adequate cheaper alternative to your machine? I am also stripping down an older rod (actually two beefsticks).

Hey 1014, let me know of any "gotchas" you find out during your rod building... I'll do the same.

I have a similar older version of that Cabela's wrapper and it's not very good. The felt V-cuts aren't as easily turned as wheels.

I'd recommend getting the discount wrapper (Item: IF-316076) for $28 that includes 3 C-clamps and has wheels.

I'd recommend the rod motor off of eBay from seller "calljmf"

http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZcalljmf

I have 3 motors from this guy. All 4.8 RPM. I'd buy the reamers separately from Jann's Netcraft.

That's a sweet looking rod James, can't wait to see it in action. What reel did you have in mind for it?

I was thinking an old beater Calcutta 400 or Cabela's MRP 200. I'm leaning towards cheap and usable, versus anything high end.

Yeah, the calcutta 400 sounds nice on there. Alan will be able to flip it out for you too.

G-Dude....How about a Bass Pro Shops Gold Megacast Reel. The gold would look great on that rod.

I've owned two Basspro round cheap baitcasters and I've had durability issues with their leaf spring clicker. But I have old Calcutta and MRP200's in stock.

BTW, I just got a report from Alaska that one of my rods built on the same blank landed a 40lb salmon from shore! I'm waiting for a picture.
