Welcome to J-Cook Fly Rods

I usually have a few custom rods in stock and ready to ship. If you do not see a rod in my FLY SHOP that is exactly what you may be looking for, by all means, give me a call. I would be glad to discuss your fly rod requirements and do a build for you. You will be surprised how affordable it can be. In most cases, I can provide you with a one of a kind custom for the same price you would buy a "factory" built rod for, and, with the same lifetime warranty. Imagine owning a Sage ONE or a Thomas & Thomas custom for the same price as a factory fly rod.

 

I build using only the finest components. I build on Sage, Thomas & Thomas, Winston and Orvis blanks, using Lemke reel seats and Snake Brand Universal guides. I turn my own reel seat wood inserts. I glue and turn my own cork grips. I'm not just another parts assembler. I am a custom rod builder for the discriminating angler.
