20180311- ice fishing was a big bust up here in the tundra of mid-Michigan... hadnt spent a dime of time out on the hard water.

if you were lucky enough to spend time out on the ice and luck enough to hook up with a bragger share your results on the bragger board.

as the ice slowly fades away i wish everyone luck and safe ventures this open water season!

Thanks Dick.

Its not hard but hope you have good eyes. You'll need some type of wheels to lay the rod blank on and spin. The finer thread you can used the better it will look but harder to see. The most important thing to remember keep the wraps close and not overlap them.

i watched several videos on you tube, lets just say when they show you how easy it is there never doing the next to last eye by the tip, but that being said enjoy and have fun making your first rod.

Thanks for that warning . I still haven't assembled my rod kit .I figure read up on it and put together sometime around St.Patrick's Day.

Comment by john on January 19, 2018 at 8:34pm

The handle is pretty easy. The thread wraps on the eyes get progressively more difficult as you get near the tip, the more the tip flexes the harder it gets.

Comment by John Sheehan on January 16, 2018 at 1:34pm

EXCELLENT PERCH HAUL BRUCE!

Comment by John Sheehan on January 16, 2018 at 1:33pm

Which thread wrapper did you get John .I got a rod kit for Christmas and have to consider getting a thread wrapper. Its not a Mudhole kit its a Netcraft kit . An Ultra Light Spinning rod kit . This will be a 1st attempt at constructing a rod .
