Do you love big bluegill?
I'm new here and after cruising this site for a bit decided that there are some great opportunities to learn a lot from a very knowledgeable member base.
I'm just getting ready to start building my own rods and want to use a 8' - 9' 2 piece fly rod blank to make a spinning rod with single foot Aluminum Oxide guides and use a close faced underspin reel with monofilament. I had one similar to this built in 98 but just recently broke it and the fellow that made it is sadly no longer with us. The rod has no markings on it that reference rod wt. or action so I guess I'll have to start from scratch.
I'm pretty passionate about bluegill fishing and that rod was the ultimate BG rod. I just want to build one as close to it as possible. I already have orders for 3 of them once I get into the building process. LOL
Has anyone on here ever undertaken a project like this and if so, what wt. rod blank and action did you use?
Thanks for any help you can provide,
