Rod Building Course
« on: Sat 19 Aug 15:17 2017 »
Have you always wanted to learn how to
build a fishing rod THE RIGHT WAY.

Nugget Outdoors is holding a rod building course hosted by world renowned custom rod builder Pedro (Custom Offshore Rods by Pedro). The course will run over three weeks on a Wednesday night between 6pm 9pm. There are only 20 seats available you must book and pay in advance to secure your seat. The course will be very hands on around a rod building lathe, you will be able to try your hand, ask questions and be shown every aspect of building a basic custom rod. During the course Pedro and students will build an offshore rod, the rod will be raffled off on the forum after the course is completed.
