Rod Building Primer

The Ken Preston Logo
This section will give you a general overview of rod building. This is fundamental information for folks who are interested in building rods themselves, as well as additional food for thought for folks looking to buy a custom rod.

Whereas the workbooks are intended as step-by-step tutorials for particular aspects of building and repair, I put this primer together to give kind of a "big picture" of the rod building process and materials.
