The list of tools and materials is as follows:
1 length of pvc pipe either 1 1/2" diameter for regular sized fly rods or 2" for spey/switch sized rods.
1 cap per tube being built.
1 roll of velcro tape sections. The kind with a wrapping hole on one end of each piece.
Tape Measure or ruler
Jigsaw. Preferrably with adjustable speeds
Pliers for trimming the saw blade
Selection of rasps, files and flat bladed screwdrivers for finish scraping.
Drill and bits sized to line slot (see captions for more on line slot widths)
Begin by placing your rod in the way you want to carry it, next to the PVC tubing. In this case, we have a 4pc. spey outfit with a flared butt on the handle that will have to be accommodated.
