RODgeeks Rod Building Class

Join us for a fun and educational day of rod building. You'll learn all of the essential steps in building a fishing rod as you make your own RG-42, a one-piece 42” spinning rod. The $60 fee covers all of the fishing rod components and supplies you will need to assemble your RG-42. Snacks and beverages will be provided and you will have a 1-hour break for lunch.

In this class you will learn:
     1.  The steps in the rod assembly process
            - Spine the rod blank
            - Assemble the handle and reel seat
            - Wrap the guides
            - Apply thread finish
     2. How to choose the correct adhesive for each step
     3. Basic fishing rod technology
     4. How to do simple rod repairs

No prior experience is necessary. You'll be surprised at how easy and fun it is to build your own fishing rod. 

Classes will be held in our Latham, NY office will run approximately 5 hours. You will have to return on the following Monday to pick up your finished rod.
