    Does anyone know of a good source of fly rod blanks. I used to do a lot of rod building/refurbishing many years ago (pre-carbon fibre) but these days tackle shops don't seem to stock blanks.

    I'm looking for a nice small river/brook rod blank about 7'-8' taking about a 4 or 5 weight line.

    Harrisons of Lverpool make rod blanks. I think their web address is something like www.harrisonrods.co.uk (or .com) I have two four piece 8 and 10 weights and I would highly recommend them.

    Take a look at USA website http://www.jannsnetcraft.com/

    They have huge range of blanks, fly tying gear etc and cheap!!

    If you order paper copy of cat it takes about 3 weeks to arrive, downloading it takes about the same time!

    You could try Steve Parton at www.spartonfly.co.uk or call him on 0115 9463 572.

    He does all the bits and blanks, including Harrisons.

    Sportfish use Harrison blanks. There's a link to Harrison's on FM's home page.

    For a British built blank, you will not beat Harrisons.
