Fish Creek Rod Company  has been hand crafting high quality split cane fly rods in Estes Park since 1999. All of the rods on this page are built with the finest of materials; Tonkin cane, silk wraps, nickel silver hardware, the best guides and cork available. The bamboo has been hand flamed to a rich honey amber, cured and constructed true to the traditions of the craft. All rods come with two tips and are new unless otherwise noted.The rod price includes an aluminum tube and H.L. Leonard style rod sock.

 I build rods suited to the waters where I live and fish; primarily mid-sized freestone streams and remote high altitude  head water creeks. I fish for wild trout in rugged country where the fish live in pockets created by boulders , shadowed by pines and hidden in the willows. The rods tend to be small, quick and light weight. The longer rods I build for alpine lakes and casting to runs in the larger water. All my bamboo rods are guaranteed for quality and offered with a limited buyer test period. Any rod shipped within the United States will be insured and subject to an additional $35.00 handling fee.
