Thank you for your interest in One by One Custom Rods. As our name suggests, we build them one at a time to your exact specifications. No two rods are exactly alike. We pride ourselves in taking the time to understand the customer's needs and deliver a product that meets them. Your custom fishing rod will be unlike any factory produced commercial rod and will catch the eye of any discriminating angler.
There is no order form or catalog to choose from. When you talk to us you are talking to the guys who will be crafting your fishing rod. You will take pride in owning a One by One Custom Rod but most important you will fish better with it too.
For most of us summer was spent vacationing at the beach with the family and dreaming of cooler temperatures, great hatches, fall run steelhead and big brown trout! Our good friend, and award winning editor of Hatches and rises for Trout Unlimited, turned this summer into a dream trip to Alaska for King Salmon and Giant Rainbows!
Christian contacted us late last winter with his plans for an upcoming summer expedition to Alaska! He explained that he and good friend Peter would be fishing both giant rainbows and kings, and his goal was to build a rod that while not being perfect for both species would work great for the giant bows and also would complete his needs for Great Lakes steelhead and giant brown trout our region offers!
After research by the three of us and Christian we determined that a Sage Ninety Nine in a eight weight would be a perfect choice for his needs! We then outfitted it with a beautiful window seat and American Tackle titanium ring lock fly guides, a burled cork inlayed handle and finished it with beautiful colors of Christians choice! The rod was made complete with a matching sage reel.
I can't lie I actually was so impressed with the rod that I wanted to keep it for myself and hoped in the back of my mind that my friend might get eaten by bears! The trip was a total success with many fish caught and landed including the beautiful rainbow above on his first cast!!
Christian was so happy with the complete experience that we shared that he wrote an article in Hatches and Rises, the Sept/October edition. This article can be viewed at http://www.pwwtu.org/ by clicking on the newsletter tab. Thanks Christian for letting us outfit you for your Alaska experience!!
We are having a busy early fall with many orders for steelhead rods....Give us a call we would love to help make your fishing dreams come true!!!!
