Welcome to Fall River Flyrods, a small rod building shop based in South East Idaho where we build fine bamboo fly rods and custom graphite fly rods. Each fly rod is built one at a time, with the attention of a master craftsman looking after every detail.
The seeds of this shop were planted in 1997, at a time when I had a very specific requirement for a new fly rod, but was not able to find a factory produced product which satisfied my unique prerequisite. As a result, I built my first fly rod and started down this path of servicing customers who wanted more than what is available in the general marketplace.
Based on our beginning we consider everything when we make a custom order. In support of that idea, every step of the process revolves around keeping our customer’s requirements, wants and needs in focus. I strive to produce fly rods which are not only outstanding fishing tools, but aesthetically unique and pleasing by using techniques which have been cast aside by manufacturers over the years.
Based in the Intermountain West, along a seam where the Great Basin Desert meets the Rocky Mountains, we are located in a unique and favorable location when it comes to fly fishing and evaluating our work on building fly rods. Our day trips include famous locations such as the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River, South Fork of the Snake River, Teton River, Silver Creek, the Big and Little Wood Rivers and Idaho’s Upper Blackfoot River. For a weekend of fine fishing, we head to places such as the Green River, Provo River, Salmon River, Beaverhead River, Bitterroot River, or the Big Hole.
With so many fine opportunities, we rarely venture outside of Montana, Idaho and Utah, but when you are out this way…keep your eyes open, you could run into us at any time. When you do meet us, be prepared to bend, shake, and cast fly rods…it’s what we are all about.
