Fish On Custom Rods

Fish On

8:00 AM, no office chatter, no phones ringing.  Only the sound of cool, clear water attempting to calm your soul.  It has little effect on the adrenaline rush fueling the drive in your heart to experience a once in a lifetime memory…watching your 10 year old son hook his first trout.  Sure, you picked the perfect fly, tied the leader with the expertise of a master, and handed him your customized fly rod, but he did the rest.  And that smile on his face as he says “fish on!” makes it all worth it…THAT is what we are all about.  -Fish On

Fish On relies upon Arcane Component Works cork rings and a range of guides, but the favorite is the guide that Fish On rodmaker, Joey Moll, pushed Arcane to create.  It’s the JM Special, featuring modern stone rings, in vivid colors, all set in traditional cradle frames.  They’re the ideal guide for anyone wishing to meld classic good looks with modern blanks.

I’ve been hand planing custom rods since 1997 and have used Arcane and Golden Witch Components almost exclusively during that time. If you’re looking for a new rod or if you just need a recommendation on why you should choose Arcane Component Works, holler!
