Custom Fly Rods by FRNR
Fly Rods are the biggest single expense for the fly fisherman, Custom Fly Rods by FRNR are an attractive option to a factory fly rod at 60% of the cost.
Having fly fished for over 25 years I have a collection of rods from a 1 wt for Brookies up to an 11 wt for Tarpon so the costs can add up as you grow into the sport. What is nice about a Custom Fly Rod by FRNR is that you are able to choose a high end rod blank with your choice of components and pay less for the finished product. Of course component selection will drive cost, but in the end you can choose nicer components (than the rod manufacturers provide) for your Custom Fly Rod and still pay less than the retail price for a manufactured rod. I offer a 100% no cost warranty for my services (to the original owner) if the rod breaks due to defective components (defective rod blank, cork grip, reel seat), rod manufacturer/blank provider fees will apply. If the rod is broken due to any other reason than my repair service cost ($50 per section) will apply as well as the rod manufacturer/blank provider fee. These are typically less than $100 if it is a single break on a rod section (multiple breaks will cost more). When you factor in my competitive rod prices, component upgrades and personal service then you are surely ahead.
I provide Custom Fly Rods made from the following blanks: TFO, St Croix, Hook & Hackle,RainShadow and others. Choose your blank and then choose your components from Snake Brand, Struble, PacBay, REC, American Tackle and Batson to name a few. I will work with you to ensure that you get the right rod blank and components to meet both your budget and casting style.
