Fishing Rod Building

A custom designed fishing rod can provide a tailored solution to the most unique of fishing situations. Most factory rods are “one size fits all”, designed so anyone can use them. They provide little specialisation, and advanced anglers often crave a more customised approach to their situations.

Fishing Station offers an extensive rod building service by our highly experienced technicians.

Custom rod building is a highly specialised niche that is frequently overlooked these days by most conventional tackle stores. Our team live and breathe rod building – if they have a spare night you’ll often find them tinkering in our workshop into the late hours building their next custom masterpiece. Every custom rod building request is undertaken with the same level of precision and detail as if it were their own. From beginner anglers to tournament veterans, our team will be able to build a rod to any requirement.

Our custom equipped workshop is fitted out with professional equipment not readily available at local fishing tackle stores, such as our multi-rod drying facility and state of the art rod lathe. We keep an inventory on hand of extensive quality-sourced componentry and blanks. Our team take the time to ensure only the highest quality items are sourced, as a lot of the work is for their own equipment – the best demand the best.

If you are in the Sydney or Northern Beaches area, drop in to our store at anytime to discuss your options.
