Fishing Rod Repairs

Today’s fishing rods are complex pieces of technology; a far cry from the primitive bamboo, cane and timber products used in days gone by. Modern rods can be made of carbon fibre, fibreglass, graphite, boron and stainless steel. It is these complex materials and componentry that make rod repairing a highly skilled niche – only undertaken by experienced, specialised repairers.

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

Rod repairing is a highly specialised service niche offered by only a handful of tackle stores. Our team live and breathe rod repairs and building – if they have a spare night you’ll often find them tinkering in our workshop into the late hours repairing and adjusting their old faithful’s.

Our custom equipped workshop is fitted 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.
