Fish On! Custom Rods began with the crafting of hand-made fly rods for family and friends and transformed into employing the best components and materials. Noteworthy among them is the hand-turned reel seat made of stabilized wood. This skillful artistry in creating gorgeous wooden reel seats combined with an agate stripping guide took off, leading to the development of wood and acrylic products for home and office.

Fish On! Custom Rods designs and crafts unique pens, bottle stoppers, coasters, charcuterie boards, serving boards and cutting boards to name just a few woodworking, handcrafted pieces. Today, Fish On! Custom Rods has been chosen by many extraordinary partners to offer their products; specifically, those that are part of a family-owned business.

In 1980, Custom Fly Rod Crafters was founded as a modest yet passionate rod company, specializing in premium fly rod building components and supplies. Our enduring success is fueled by a deep commitment to crafting exceptional fly tackle. While our early fascination with fly fishing transcended the mere art of casting or the thrill of catching wild trout, our attention was captivated by the allure of the tackle itself. The act of personally crafting flies and constructing rods quickly became the core essence of our enterprise.

Over the years, our dedication led us to create over 5700 custom rods and produce aluminum rod cases for esteemed companies like Scott and Winston, as well as other smaller rod manufacturers. Concurrently, we expanded our presence by establishing a retail fly shop in Albuquerque, NM. Guided by the philosophy of ‘simple elegance’ in rod building, we assert that a rod can exude beauty without unnecessary embellishments when the custom rod builder pays meticulous attention to finer details. This commitment to meticulousness distinguishes a ‘custom rod’ from commonplace, mass-produced fly rods, forming the bedrock of our identity and setting us apart in the industry.
