HiFor total bamboo fans-- the bamboo tube fly
Hey bullet for spacing there is a chart for guide lines on flyrodcrafters.com at the bottom of their home page,but dont forget a static load test when you get the guides taped on before you wrap them there is a post under general fishing questions where it is explained by wolly bugger. They also have an outline saying how to find the spline (i dunno if boo has a spline for sure) and where to start. Also google is a great tool. 5 minute epoxy for handle and reel seat i recently started building "tupperware" rods and this site and other forums with past discussions saved my agony. Did your blank come with ferrules on or off? and do you have a wrapping jig i can e-mail you a very simple set of plans for one. Anyway keep posting on progress and will try to help with what arisesMy bamboo kit came yesturday!! Now I have to figure out how to build it. Real nice kit, should be a very nice rod.
The only problem I have now is that there is no directions. I need to find out the guide spacing and what glue to use to assemble, epoxy?? maybe.
Any help would be great.
I will start taking some pics latter on.
Bullet,Oh great now i want to try that need more space lol. I thought she snarled when i started wrapping graphite
wait till this starts. Thanks Chuck
