Our Fly Rods

We take great pride in our fly rods, which are 100% made in the USA. From our high-quality blanks to the best components available, we believe in American made products. Each fly rod is built by hand in Livingston, Montana - just a few blocks from the world famous Yellowstone River.

Custom fly rod builds are priced at $800. 

Our Blanks

The blanks we use for our custom fly rods are made to our exacting specifications to produce the performance, feel, and accuracy we want for our customers. They are 100% made in America and we are thrilled to be using them for our fly rods. The unsanded finish of the blanks adds durability and strength, as well as a unique feel and look.

Our Made in America blanks are available in 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 weights. The 5 and 6 weight rods are available in two different actions to suit unique casting styles, personal preference and intended use.  

Our Mid-Flex action is designed to be an "all-around" action. The main flex point is the middle of the rod, giving a slower action that is ideal for soft dry fly presentations and those with a more relaxed casting style. This rod can also handle big flies, nymph rigs, and stiff winds. 

Our faster Tip-Flex action is noticeably stiffer, and flexes in the upper third of the rod. This true fast action isn't a broomstick, and still maintains a considerable amount of feel. Those with a faster casting stroke, seeking maximum distance, or constantly battling wind will find this rod perfect.

Made In The USA

We are proud to support American manufacturing, and we know how important Made in the USA is to our customers.

Our Build Process

We want to create fly rods that you will treasure forever, fish hard, and choose every single time. Our custom build process gives you complete control over all aspects of your fly rod build, letting you create something unique and personal. If you want us to help with the design of your rod, we certainly can!

Each fly rod is made with a premium nickel-silver reel seat, an agate stripping guide, and Snake brand guides. As the physical connection with your fly rod, a premium cork handle lets you feel the rod loading, and gives you a comfortable and familiar grip for many fish to come. Our agate stripping guides are available in a wide variety of colors to match your overall design, and you’ll be able to choose the perfect one.

Our team will work with you to answer any questions on your fly rod build, and we can even video chat with you to show off various reel seats, agate colors, and cork grips to make sure you are perfectly satisfied with your build. All rods include a cloth rod sock and a laser engraved aluminum rod tube.

Each custom fly rod takes roughly 3-4 weeks to complete, depending on the time of year and volume of work we have on hand. We don’t rush our work, every step is taken with the greatest of care and attention to detail. Each fly rod includes our 5-Year Warranty for the original owner.
