I enjoy spotlighting small companies that help the fly fishing industry carry on. I believe we need many more of them, and we need to support the ones that are out there. The latest that I wanted to feature is the Jefferson Rod Company.
Jefferson Rod Co. produces handcrafted fly rods in both single and doubled handed versions out of their small Oregon shop. These are graphite rods, using quality components, with a ton of love and dedication baked right in.
They have models & weights for most any fly fishing situation, and I’m sure they’d love to craft one specifically for you.
I did not know the Jefferson Rod Co. existed until just recently when I stumbled across their Instagram feed. I had a quick read of their story, along with a look at the craftsmanship that goes into each rod. They make beautiful stuff, and I’m always impressed with those in our sport that create the kind of craftsmanship we see it today’s rod building game.
If you’re in the market for a new rod, and you’d like that rod to come from one of the small builders out there doing awesome work, give Jefferson Rod Co. a look. Check out their website, or give them a follow on Facebook or Instagram.
