Custom Fly Rods & Spey Rods

If it exists we can build it. Our custom fly rods and Spey rods are simply stunning. Performance, quality, design, and function. Your Highliner custom fishing rods deliver it all.

Casting performance of our rods is one of the main things that sets Highliner apart. In fly casting, we build energy with the rod and transfer it to the line. Anything that can add to the efficiency of that will result in a longer cast. We have discovered a process of guide train modification which results in added casting distance of our rods. On average, our custom fly rods and Spey rods will out cast the factory-built version of the same rod. The degree of added distance obviously varies with the individual casting ability of the angler.

Our tasteful use of color will add a unique one of a kind personality to your new custom rod. Our unique style of design has been described as world class. We take the time to work with each client in person, via email, or telephone to select your rod blank, choose your colors, rod design, and components. Valuable input from you will allow us to create a custom fly rod unlike anything you have ever owned. Our rods are either 2 piece, 3, piece, or 4 piece fly rods. Rod grips are all custom built and shaped to your specs. Our rods range from 3 weight fly rods to 12 weight saltwater fly rods.

Each Highliner Custom Rod is individually numbered and personalized with the client’s name and comes with a soft cloth bag and custom cut aluminum tube.

Fly Rod Blanks:

CF Burkheimer, RL Winston, Sage, Orvis, Talon to name a few.

Fly Rod Grips:

Our custom fly rod grips are another one of the big things that set Highliner apart. All of our grips are custom made by us in our shop. Any shape, any diameter, or any configuration can be built. Our cork comes direct from Portugal and is what we refer to as Superior Grade. It is the finest quality cork available in the world today. As a result, our grips do not contain as much “filler” as factory built grips. Because of this they do not “pit” or deteriorate over time like most other grips. We feel that a world class custom fly rod deserves no less.

Carbon fiber grips are also available and built by us from scratch. Any shape, diameter, or configuration can be built. Carbon fiber is lighter than cork, more durable, and more sensitive.
