When blue water calls we answer. Originally a blue water builder know for our West Coast style Jig and Rail  rods we have never given up the passion. Our blue water Trolling, Jigging and Hard Core Big Game rods have always performed. Built to the highest performance standard, we may not build the prettiest rod in the inlet but we pride ourselves son the knowledge and experience. Three generations of anglers, over 100 years of combined experience on Big water, we build what we fish.
