Featured Custom Rods

I am pleased to introduce the first series of limited edition fiberglass rods designed by Flat Creek Rods. I wanted to create an all around trout taper that would handle a variety of situations from dry flies to nymphing and light streamers. After deciding on a 4 wt rod in 7’9” configuration, I worked with Mike McFarland to design and roll a full-flexing taper with a moderate action. Once the material, design, and color were chosen, a demo blank was rolled and built. The first rod was field tested by trusted, yet critical colleagues in New Mexico, Montana, Idaho, and Washington. I took their feedback, made a few adjustments, and then built the first series of 5 rods.

The 3 piece rods feature shop-turned Texas mesquite wood inserts with uplocking reel seat hardware from Joel Lemke, Flor grade cigar grips, TiCH snake guides and a mildrum stripping guide. These rods are complimented with a rod sock and protective aluminum tube. The first series of 5 rods are available on a first come basis at $525 each. Domestic shipping $15.
