Rod building material at your disposal

All the necessary tools and consumables (epoxy, threads, hand wrapper, rod dryer, etc.) are at your disposal. You only need to bring your own small material (razor blade, light, etc.). 

The fly rod you can build
Choose a short model if possible, ideally a 7'6 or 8'0 foot as the necessary time needed to complete your threadwork is rather long for your first experience. We have a large selection of blanks and fly rod kits at your disposal. You just need to select the one you’d like and I’ll prepare it for you. Pleasecontact me directly to make your selection.

Inscription and conditions
We organize on demand our rod building workshops for groups of min. 6 to a max. of 8 people. This is an ideal formula for Club and associations who have a large and heated meeting room at their disposal. For single people, you can enroll on our waiting list and when we have a group, we’ll set up a date that suits you.

Duration: 2 days

Price: 345€ per person (fly rod kit, room rent and meals are not included in this price)
