Bob Meiser will sell you hardware (guides and seat) if you call him, even if it is for your own blank, and his blanks are highly recommended and sought out as well. Can be a great way to take all the guesswork out if things. I particularly like the custom lemke reel seats he uses in his standard builds - just beautiful. If you want something fancier that involves say a unique piece of wood for the insert eBay make be one of the better ways to go, as each item will have a bunch of pictures. Spey sized stuff is a bit harder to find. I’ve had very good luck with buying the cork on eBay as well. And then there are the usual online suspects: mudhole, hook and hackle, and and many others. “Custom fly rod crafters” is one of my favorite sources, and is a smaller ma and pa style outfit out of Albuquerque NM - highly recommended. Can be a good place to find a tube the right size as well. We are not allowed to post links to most commercial sites but you should have no trouble finding them through google. Lots of people on here have way more experience than I do, and I’m sure the more specific you can be about what you want the better their suggestions will be.

If your needs also include a blank then I’m sure you will get tons of suggestions as well. Until about last January when the proprietor passed away one of THE places to get a very inexpensive spey blank was from a place called anglers roost, but what will happen now, or whether it will even reopen again is still in limbo. You can find some equivalent things on eBay for similar prices if you work at it a bit. As for nice but more expensive blanks, those are easy to find if they are in the budget.

Good luck, and post some pictures of the final results.

Just sent you a PM, I am over on the island. There are a few places in the Lower Mainland you can get rod building supplies, and also let you know my local island suppler.

I bought a Z-axis blank when they were on close out and then got around to buying the parts to build it from Angler's Workshop. But that was while they were still located in Woodland, WA. They merged with another outfit in the mid-west, but I think they still offer all the same stuff. You can check online.

Unless you wanted to make your own wood insert, I concur with buying a reel seat from Bob. I have Meiser rods, built from Bob and those I built, and like the Meiser seat the best.
