On the summit you've shown me your arsenal of self build rods and for me that was an inspiratoin of making my own rod some day. So that day is near! Coming week i'll be starting with my own project at my local fly-fishing shop which is giving a course on how to make your own rod. With this background information I won't be completely ignorent. Thanks a lot Jan-Ole!!
