Adventures in Rod Building?

I just found out that I won an eBay auction on an 11′ 4 piece 5 weight fly rod blank – so it looks like sometime in the soonish future (when I can figure out what other components I want, and then scrape them together) I shall become an amateur fly rod builder. Woo hoo!

I might also wind up with an 11′ 3 weight blank, unless I get sniped in the next 24 hours. Such a long 3 weight sounds like a Czech nymphing rod to me. The 5 weight is going to wind up seeing big-water use and should make a great boat rod.
