First time rod building, beginner guide

I haven't ever built a fly rod before, and this turned out pretty good. I thought I would give it a try. Let me know what you guys think. I know already of a few mistakes I made, but the rod came out looking great anyway! In the video I show the unboxing, grip and but section instillation, rod wrapping, guide placement, and epoxying of the rod. I bought this kit from the Hook & Hackle, and they sell some really nice products for a great price! Also they were very helpful with my questions.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
