OUR Services


We met at UC Berkeley in February of 1982, in the dining hall of the Unit 1 dorms.

MISSION STATEMENT

We are here to share our passion for fly rods, fly fishing, travel, and learning.  The Fly Rod Company offers a number of services and products tailored to individuals who enjoy the sport of fly fishing.

Whatever your personal tastes, John can make a fly rod from a bamboo culm or build one from a fiberglass or graphite blank.  We boast of a product that is produced entirely in our shop in Idaho Falls, Idaho, 

We believe fly fishing knowledge should be shared and everybody is welcome.  It's that simple.
