About Us

I have been building custom fishing rods since 1985 for anglers who have an eye and a desire to own the very best in craftsmanship and quality. I was trained by such mentors as Dale Clemmons of Allentown, PA, who was a forefather of custom rod building, and Vince Mascetti of Kitty Hawk Bait & Tackle. Having been trained by the best, I have learned how to build rods that combine fine engineering and durability, along with detailed craftsmanship.

I grew up fishing around the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean and I know what a fisherman requires for catching the predators that roam local waters. I have also run and worked on a boat at Ocean City, Maryland. I have fished the Atlantic Gulf Stream for blue marlin, white marlin, sailfish, bluefin tuna, yellowfin tuna, wahoo, and dolphin. I know the power and abuse that offshore fishing rods can be exposed to while out on the water. That’s why I pay extra attention to building a durable fishing rod that can withstand many years of the strongest abuse.

Always experimenting and fine-tuning my craft, I recently developed a unique process for bending abalone. The resulting fishing rods are truly unique while offering a stunning display of the multiple colors of the sea. They’ve become a real favorite and were recently featured in RodMaker Magazine.

My passion for fishing and the craft of rod building comes through in every rod that I build. I pride myself in handcrafting rods that are beautiful, precision-tuned and will withstand the test of time. You can find my custom fishing rods on the East Coast, West Coast, Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean, South America, and even Hawaii.
