Fly handle and guide

Recommended Posts

I am building a 2wt 7'6 fly rod. Is there a standard handle size or are they built depending on the length of the rod and how do you determine the length of the handle. Also is there a method for determining the amount and spacing of the guides. I know these are simple questions but Im pretty new at this game.

7" is pretty standard but build it to the length that you want.  That is the advantage of building your own, you make it to what YOU like, not what someone else tells you is right.

Thanks. I kinda figured that on the handle but didnt know how it would effect the rod performance. Also thanks for the info on the rod spacing chart. Didnt even think to look at Mud Hole
