The best fly fishing rods are built by the most experienced rod builders taking in several considerations that an assembly line simply can't. 

We start with using top of the line fly rod brands that are tried and true AND still uphold reasonable warranties, such as:

Next, we take into consideration what species of fish you will be fly fishing for.  For example it is important to know if you need a custom:

We also have a wonderful line of custom ice fishing rods for those die hard anglers who like to fish in winter conditions. Our ice fishing rods are perfect for winter Pike fishing as they are upgraded with reinforced support.

Next, we will assess what geographical areas that you're most likely to use your custom made fly fishing rod. 

Wind, climate and other factors play a role in deciding which fly rod is best. 

Fly rods come in various "action" specifications which help compete against the elements and how far you need to cast:

  • Slow Action Fly Rods
  • Medium Action Fly Rods
  • Fast Action / Ultralight  Fly Rods

With these main factors in mind, we will help steer you towards ordering the perfect fly rod. 

The final decision is perhaps the easiest one of all to make: choose your thread colors and personalized message you want on your fly rod and we do the rest.
