Spring is here and, for those of you who do not fish year-round, it’s time to get out your rod and reel, buy your fishing license/trout stamp, and hit your favorite body of water. If you don’t have a rod or need another one, come here John Lachin, one of our Chapter members, talk about rod-building. This is not a class where you actually build a rod. John will tell you about rod building and, hopefully, get you interested enough to want to build your own – it’s apparently not that difficult and a lot less expensive than buying one. At a later date, John plans to hold a rod-building class, where you would actually build your own rod over several sessions.
Details on the meeting:
First Floor – Room A
240-777-8000 – Main desk
– Social Hour
John asks that you bring the following to the meeting, as it will help you to better understand what he is describing:
A rod (any rod – fly or spin casting)
Two small boxes, with notches cut into the ends, to support a rod section
Some thread (the thicker the better) and a bobbin (the kind used for fly tying)
A hardcover book
Note paper and a pen/pencil – John will have a handout, with the basic steps for building a rod, but you may wish to take notes.
Hope to see you there! Bring a friend.
