Wanting to build a rod
« on: August 16, 2015, 08:17:15 PM »

Sea Run has some stuff. Selection is weak but it's enough to get started.

Best Canada sources are Andy @ http://www.rodbuildersupplies.com/
and Mark at http://www.valleycustomrods.com/
I also buy from Mudhole but the exchange rate is prohibitive now.

Call Andy. He can probably set you up with some good stuff.

Mark no longer owns Valley Custom Rods.  Chad Hammond bought the company 604-997-7637 (RODS)

And he is awesome!!  Mark had many things on the go so it was often hard to get access to his shop... Chad and his wife Sheina are at the shop most days and are a real pleasure to deal with.

Not a rod builder myself but from word of mouth and reputation was going to suggest Mark and now Chad at Valley Custom Rods as well for local
