Welcome to the Fiberglass Flyrodders Wiki!

 

Welcome to What?

This is a website for information on, what else, fiberglass flyrods.  A Wiki is an online version of an encyclopedia, but one that is constantly updated by the readers.  Many readers will have permission to add/edit the content of these pages.  If you know something special about the Sage SFL476, go to the Sage page click the "Edit" button and add a note.  Click "Save".  It's that simple.  If you have a mid 70s Berkley catalog listing all the Parametric models of the day, add that information to the Berkley page.

 

This Wiki works in conjunction with the the Fiberglass Flyrodders discussion forum.  The Wiki will hold information, specifications, model numbers, and other useful information.  But for discussion and questions about the rods, collecting, fishing, for sale, building, and the general why of fiberglass flyrods, please visit the forum.

 

While the Wiki is free, it does have very discrete Ads by Google across the top of the pages.  We don't have any control over which ads are displayed.  Sorry about that.

 

Finding your way around

The Wiki is navigated like any other website.  The links are shown in blue text.  The Sidebar contains links to all of the Wiki pages.  Basically, it is the Table of Contents.  There is a Modern Rods section with pages for each of the glass rod makers active in the market.  There is also a separate page just listing the available Modern Rod Blanks.  There is a Classic Rods section.  This section has a large number of pages - one for each of major makers of the past.  At this point I have only included pages for the bigger companies.  As time goes on, we will be able to include any maker we feel is worthwhile (send me a e-mail and I'll add them).

 

You can help

If you got here, and you have the password, you may edit these pages, add information, and add comments/reviews.  There is an entry for each current builder on the Modern Rods pages.  Under Classic Rods there are fairly complete pages for Sage and Silaflex (please read these before entering information on other pages).  Most of the Classic Rod entries need someone to share his knowledge of model numbers and details.  If you provide the information, I will edit the page to make the format match the rest of the pages.  Please reference any information you provide (see General References) for details.

 

 

I have interlinked the Wiki pages to make navigation easy.  I think I provided enough topics and pages to accomodate everyone's favorite rod models.  But, if you feel there should be additional pages or topics, please do not create them outright.  Instead, contact me at jgestar@fiberglassflyrodders.org and I will add and link the new pages into the website. 

 

Photos can be linked to PhotoBucket.  However, please do not post comprensive photo shoots of your rods.  Instead, only add photos of notable or unusual features.  I do not want the Wiki to become a source of photos used in scam eBay auctions.

 

RecentActivity  This section summarizes the recent editing and contributions made to this site.

 

SandBox  If you have never contributed to a Wiki before, this is a good spot to get a little practice.  Please go here and mess about before you dive in.
