    Default Rod Building Video

    Having been asked to make a video on how I build a custom rod I have started on one. This is the first step starting with planning. More videos to come from start to finish on a bait casting crappie rod. Remember this is how I build a rod and is in now way intended to disparage how others build a rod.

    I really enjoyed the video - lot to be said about "old school". Still have Dale Clemens Rod Wrapping and Thread Art books from the 80s. Also have a collection of Rod Wrapping magazines from way back. I can remember spending tall money for his VHS tapes when they came out....
    Thank you cw for the post.

    Always interesting to hear a fellow rod builders thoughts on different styles to build a rod, you never know when you will learn something new. And i have to agree, the old way of building a rod is still the tried and true way of today. I may be 29 but when i started building them in high school for a grade in shop class, my teacher made me watch a number of Dale Clemens Videos. I often still use a number of his ways over the new "better" styles of building.

    There has got to be a better software for editing these videos than what I am using.

    I’m still editing the name weave video. Because these are instructive with a lot of steps I’m having trouble keeping them under an hour. When I start fishing videos it should be easier to hit the 20 minute target.
