Saturday Shoutout / How Its Made

Ever wonder exactly what goes into that hot new fly rod?

I think a lot of anglers have no idea how many hours of work goes into the rod they fish. I’ve been fortunate to tour many rod shops and even try my hand at rolling a blank. It’s a fascinating process and it always amazes me how much difference the slightest change in process can make in ho a rod casts and feels.

If you’ve ever been curious about how graphite rods are made, this article on Midcurrent by Jim LePage is a great read and very informative.
