Nothing really compares to the sense of achievement of catching a fish on a rod that you have built yourself. We’ve made it easier than ever for you to jump straight into rod building. No experience is necessary just get online to our RodKits Rod Building Course and follow the simple step by step videos. The beauty of this is you can take your time and if you make a mistake you can just retrace your steps. The only equipment you need to get started is one of our turn-key Complete Starter Kits. The kits come with all the tools, components and adhesives to build a single rod.
These turn-key kits make perfect gifts for any keen fisho and are suitable for ages 12-100
Warning!! This hobby (or profession) is extremely addictive and you’ll almost definitely not be satisfied with only building a single rod.
