ROD BUILDING WORKSHOP
GOLDEN GATE ANGLING AND CASTING CLUB
One GGACC rod building workshops will begin this Fall for current club members consisting of six meetings, held at the clubhouse one evening a week over the course of nine weeks. Meetings will be held from 6 pm to 8 pm on Wednesday. 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 and at home between meetings.
Topics include: choosing a rod blank and components; assembling and gluing up real seats, aligning rod sections, constructing cork grips, preparing and wrapping guides, and coating guide thread wraps.
Participants must supply a graphite or fiberglass rod blank, reel seat, cork, guides, thread, thread finish and some simple tools (razor blade, making tape, glue, etc.) This workshop is geared for building fiberglass and graphite fly rods only, from all new materials. Rod repair or rod reconditioning services are not offered here. The club supplies rod wrapping jigs and rod drying motors that you will take home between meetings.
The first workshop will begin on October 11th. There is a $35.00 fee for participation in this course.
Online enrollment will begin on this page at 6 pm September 20th. Each class can accommodate only six spaces and they fill up quickly.
