Your own hand built fishing rod
COVID 19 INFORMATION FOR YOUR PEACE OF MIND:-
All fishing rods received / delivered to my workshop, are sprayed with Anti-Bacterial Cleanser and wiped-down to eliminate any contamination from the outside world.
The same is done when I return your rods or when you collect them.
Face coverings MUST be worn when delivering / collecting rods, and social distancing rules also apply.
Thank you and keep safe.

Hand made excellence
Today's modern advanced carbon fibre laminates are
from the aerospace, motor sports and hi-tech engineering
All projects using carbon fibre technology require
different blends of material to achieve the desired result ie,
nose cones from a fighter aircraft require totally different
carbon fibres than the body panels from an F1 racing car. So, to
be successful when building top quality fishing rods, an
understanding of the qualities of the many different carbon
fibres available is needed, so as to be able to hand build a
fishing rod for you that will cast effortlessly and also play
Your rod blank will be produced by a British company, with an
excellent design team, who specialise in premier quality carbon
fibre fishing rod products.
Working closely together with them a range of fly fishing rods,
carp and barbel fishing rods, at the cutting-edge of technology,
has been produced. As new, more exotic, carbon fibres become
available they are harnessed into your fishing rod design.
Computer Aided Designs (CAD) helps to build, for you, fishing
rods that are light, strong and durable with actions that are a
delight to use. High quality that could save the need for future
fishing rod repairs.
