The Fayetteville PHWFF program is stocking up Rod kits for the 2017 rod-building contest. The contest build period is scheduled to begin in January. In anticipation of the contest, the Fayetteville program will hold a rod-building workshop on December 8th at 6:30pm at the Pechmann Fishing Education Center. Instruction will be provided on prepping and installing guides, simple trim bands, and a simple decorative (Tiger wrap) wrap. Equipment is limited, so priority will be given to those who are participating in this year's rod building contest. However, all PHWFF participants are welcome to attend. If you have your own rod building tools, please feel free to bring them. Practice dowels and threads will be provided. If you like to attend this workshop, please contact Tom Carpenter, PHWFF-Program Lead; 7489 Raeford Road; Fayetteville, NC 28304; office: 910-868-5003 or mobile: 910-494-2757.
