Custom Salmon Rods and Steelhead Rods

One of the first things Highliner clients notice in our custom salmon rods and steelhead rods, besides the obvious beauty, is how the rod feels in their hands and how it fishes.

We believe we can build fishing rods with top of the line components that will balance and fish better than the factory wrapped options. Today’s rod blanks and rod building components are stronger, more lightweight, and more technologically advanced than ever before. These rods are aesthetically beautiful as well as being a tool that will break the will of the largest fish that swim.

Each Highliner custom rod features one of a kind thread work design in your choice of colors and is individually numbered and personalized with the client’s name and comes with a soft cloth bag and custom cut aluminum tube.

Rod Blanks:

Lamiglas, Rogue Rods, St. Croix, Rainshadow, Northfork Composites, Cousins, Talon

Rod Grips:

Our rod grips are one of the big things that set us apart. We take pride in the fact that all of our rod grips are custom made by us from scratch. Any shape, diameter, or configuration can be built. Our grips can also be fit to the specific hand of the client. 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 of this quality, our grips do not contain as much “filler” material as is seen in most factory rods. Because of this, our grips tend to not “pit” or deteriorate over time like most other grips. We feel that a world class fishing 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.
