Custom Rod Builders. For the most part custom rod builders are and have been the foundation of the sport-fishing (i.e. fishing rod) industry for many years. However it is important to note that both the custom builders and the major manufacturers are reliant upon each other to some degree - i.e. both drive new technologies and the application of innovative processes and construction for the industry as a whole. New material and component development is usually a manufacturing derivative whereas the innovation of fishing rod construction continues to be developed from the small cadre of professional custom builders. This stated the custom builders in some form are all considered "hobbyists" however our discussion will focus on the custom fishing rods crafted by professional craftsmen and builders many of whom own and operate as small businesses routinely producing finished performance products and equipment to the general public.
A fly fishing rod needs to do several jobs. Firstly it must cast the line which requires strength and spring so that it can act like a catapult to shoot the line great distance when needed - or very accurately and gently when thats the order of the day. Secondly it must retrieve the line which requires sensitivity so you can feel the line as it is recovered and know when a fish takes the fly. Thirdly it must fight the fish which requires the ability to cushion the leader and soak up the shocks as the fish runs and jumps. Finally it must be transportable which means that it must be capable of being manufactured in sections which come together to act as a whole when assembled.
