Fly Rod Kits

The Red Truck Fly Rod kit:

The fly rod kit starts with a high-quality fly rod blank from Red Truck Flyfishing. We put this together with everything you need to build a fly rod. The RT grip, RT seat (and butt when applicable) are all genuine merchandise for a precision fit. The matching guide set, tip and winding check are from American Tackle. We’ve included a complete glue and finish kit with cups and brushes. Our matching cotton twill rod sock is also part of the base kit. We’ve matched the thread to the blank.  We use basic black nylon with the graphite kits and the glass kits have yellow silk. 

If you wish to change the thread color, please shoot us a note. If you wish to change the seat, the grip or the guide finish etc, just let us know and we will work with you. The base fly rod kit is simple and inexpensive, but complete.  You can add a rod tube at your discretion.

The good news is you don’t need a complex electric variable-speed winder-dryer.  You need a simple wooden rod-wrapping cradle: Rod Cradle Anyone with basic craft skills can build one of these.  The cradle combined with some common household items will do the job.  Each kit also includes clear, sensible instructions.
