Rod Building Workshop #2

Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club

Learn a new skill, save money.

Two GGACC rod building workshops will begin this Fall for current Club members.  Each will consist of six meetings, held at the Anglers Lodge one evening a week over the course of seven or eight weeks.  Meetings for this second workshop will be held from 6pm to 8pm on Thursday evenings.  Each meeting will cover a different aspect of rod building and you'll apply what you learn to the rod blank you're building at that meeting.

Topics include: choosing a rod blank and components, assembling and gluing up reel seats, aligning rod sections, constructing cork grips, preparing and wrapping guides, and coating guide thread wraps.

There is no fee for the workshop, but participants must supply a rod blank, reel seat, cork, guides, thread, finish and some simple tools (razor blade, masking tape, glue, etc.)  The Club supplies rod wrapping jigs and rod drying motors that you will take home between meetings.  This means there is homework!

This second workshop starts Thursday, October 20th.  The first workshop starts on October 5 and runs on Wednesday evenings.  It is listed separately on the events calendar.

Online enrollment for both workshops will begin September 14th.  Please be aware that each class can accommodate only six spaces and they fill up quickly.
