NW Rods Story

I started fishing with my Dad in 1976. I was 4 years old and every minute I spent on the water with my Dad was memorable. He was my favorite fishing Buddy! We used to fish the North Fork Reservoir above the Clackamas river in Oregon at least twice a week. There I caught a million Trout and a few Steelhead that had been put there by the fish truck. That fish truck was my favorite vehicle on the road. These Summer weekends were the best, and started my love of all things fishing!

Fishing is in my blood, so I thought how can I combine my passion and build a career? Rod building was a perfect combination!

I have been building rods since 2004 and have learned from some of the best in the business. Its been a journey and I look forward to many more years.

All NW Rods are proudly made in the USA!
