    Just wanted to let the Ohio guys know that CLark State Community College will be having a new class. It is a rod repair and rod building class. It is a 4 week class starting Jan30th. It is once a week for 4 weeks. Tuesdays at 6:00 pm-7:30 pm. The cost is 45 dollars for the whole course. I think Im taking it, if my boss gives me 2 hours every tuesday off. Just thought id let yall know about if anyone is interested. Always cool to learn new things.

    Boss and RiverKing, your in luck!! The best rod builder in SW Ohio is living in your town, Jim Corbin, lives back behind Eye 1/KFC. Heck, he might even be doing the class, do you know who is teaching it?

    Thanks for the info salmonID. I had no idea that we had a master rod builder in Yellow Springs. I will definately be calling this guy if I need some work done. Is he a member of the BOC?

    Boss Hogg, I am not sure what he likes working on since he mostly builds Fly rods so i have sent him an email asking if he is looking for other business doing other types of rods , still waiting for a reply. Stay tuned
