About Me

I am an avid angler and rod maker, located in the beautiful state of Virginia.

Rod building is a passion for me, almost as much as fishing. I build each rod one at a time. Excellent craftsmanship is my priority, and I take pride in designing rods that marry form and function, producing handsome tools that retain value and help my customers perform at their very best, regardless of their skill level. 

Custom rods are not just for pro anglers. They can be a very practical means of getting a rod with the options you really want and need. Consider a custom experience over a factory-made rod built to standard specifications and designed for the general public.  


All the rods I build are designed to fish, and each carries my promise of honest workmanship.
