May 20th tying session - Rod building basics

KFF monthly session
Monday, May 20, 2019
Rapides Westside Library, 5416 Provine, Alexandria

This month, our usual fly tying session will be dedicated to discuss another fly fishing craft - rod building.  Our resident rod building expert, Roger Breedlove, will discuss the process of assembling a fly rod from components such as blanks, grips, reel seats, etc.  This is in preparation for our Rod Building Summer Workshop taking place on Saturday, June 29th.

Roger will discuss the particulars of choosing the right blank length, rod weight and action for your needs, selecting matching hardware, and tools you will need to build a rod. 

If you plan to take part of the workshop on June 29th or build a rod sometime later in the future, you want to attend this meeting.  If you do -NOT- plan to build a rod, you will still find this meeting very informative and interesting.  

As always, this session is open to the public.
