Custom Built Fly Rods

Fly Fishing Guiding and Instruction in the Catskill Tradition with Mark Loete

Catskill Mountain Angler builds fly rods for our angling clients that are specifically tailored to the places our clients fish and the quarry they fish for. Choice of reel seat, handle style, and thread cosmetics is customized to the client’s taste and fishing style. We can build a graphite fly rod of any length and any weight from any commercially available blank, but we recommend blanks from one of several after market suppliers. These blanks perform as well as (some experienced anglers say better than) blanks from the popular brands costing three and four times as much money. Price per custom quote. You might be surprised.
