Default Finishing a rod

Hi,
I got a nice looking blank from an auction site. The reel seat is on, no guides or tip top. It has been years since I "converted" a boat rod to a spinning rod but I have the jig that my cousin's ex husband made from the Field and Stream plans I gave him. Now, retiring today with lots of time, suggestions on where to start. I know I need guides, wrapping thread, epoxy etc. I've found some sites on line, but any other suggestions are welcome.
Thanks,
Mike

Hey Mike,

This is a great source of info & support,

http://www.rodbuildingforum.com/
http://rodbuilding.org/list.php?2

Here's where you can get supplies,

http://www.jsflyfishing.com/
www.jannsnetcraft.com
www.mudhole.com

I picked up this guide to help get me started,

http://www.amazon.com/Rod-Building-G...s=rod+building

It's very to-the-point and easy to grasp the concepts. If you want to get more involved or fancy with wraps, then I'd recommend this book,

Good luck, and be sure to let us know how you do.

Tight lines!

Most of the appropriated items have been introduced for the safety of the individuals. The intoxicated tinge of the man and customer service essays has been highlighted for the reforms for the humans for the future and prospective challenges.

Cote's fly shop in MA has a lot of info, and they'll happily walk you through it.

I get many of my rod building supplies from this place in WA:

That being said, Cotes in MA was a great local source. They have not been at the NH fly show for a number of years, but they did have really good prices.
