About Us

We are a small company from Northern Minnesota. All of us are avid fishermen (and women)and know the importance of a good fishing rod.

Our Business Philosophy

We strive to provide our customers with the finest custom fishing rods you can own. We also believe that a custom rod should look like a work of art. Anyone that sees your new rod should know instantly that it is not a "factory" model.

We also believe that the custom rod builder should be able to get top of the line products and not just items that sell fast. To many companies will not carry the top of the line products because they don't "move fast". A custom rod should have exactly the parts you want, not what you had to settle for.

Our Company

We build any kind of rod, from big game saltwater rods to fly rods. During the course of building some of our clients more unique rods we have established sources for rare, hard to come by components. We also restore antique rods. Kevin, in our hardwood department has come up with some very unique seat inserts, you will not find on anyone elses rods. Dan, our company owner and head thread art person, loves a challenge. If you can think of a thread art pattern you have never seen, he will figure out how it can be done. We all want your rod to be the best we have ever made.

Our Employees

A business is only as good as the people who work for it. Every employee at our company fishes and between us hold several world records. All of us flyfish and most have deep sea fished. We are all multi-species fishermen. Between us we know the best rod for any occasion. If you are unsure what to order we can work with you to insure that you never regret your purchase of any product.
