The Fish Creek Rod Company has been handcrafting high quality split cane fly rods in Estes Park, Colorado since 1999. All of the rods offered on this site are built with the finest materials; Tonkin cane, silk wraps, nickel silver hardware, the best guides and cork available. The bamboo has been cured and flamed to a rich amber hue, hand planned and constructed true the the traditions of the craft. Fish Creek builds rods suited to the waters of the local Rocky Mountain high country; primarily small to mid-sized freestone streams and remote head water creeks. The country is rugged and the trout are wild. You seek the fish in rocky pockets, shadowed by pines, scrambling through boulders and guardian willows. The rods tend to be small, quick and light weight. The longer rods are built for alpine lakes and casting to runs in the larger water. All Fish Creek Rods are guaranteed for quality and are offered with a limited buyer test period.
