Jefferson Rod Co. is a custom fly rod shop in the State of Jefferson. Our mission is to build rods that perform flawlessly while displaying the highest quality of craftsmanship. Built one at a time—to order—we utilize simple processes to create uniquely beautiful tools for anglers everywhere.
Our craft was honed through many seasons spent guiding fly anglers, and building custom rods vocationally. Our extensive time on the water, along with a deep knowledge of rod design, combine to lend a practical perspective on the key aspects required in building a truly excellent fly rod.
After scouting out just the right location, Jefferson Rod Co. was born in a small shop near the Rogue River in Oregon.
The State of Jefferson
In the early 20th century, many citizens living in Southern Oregon and Northern California felt their needs were underrepresented by their state’s governments. The two regions joined forces in attempt to form a new state proudly known as the "State of Jefferson". Though the dream never came to fruition, the "State of Jefferson" still represents a spirit of independence and self-sufficiency that is alive today. A state of mind.
The mythical state is surrounded by countless rivers and natural beauty that a person could spend a lifetime exploring. When not in the rod shop, we are often on the river.
Five percent of our sales revenue is donated to our friends at Fly Fishing Collaborative. Through joint efforts within the Flyfishing community, FFC has successfully made a difference by providing sustainable food sources to impoverished communities throughout the world. FFC is also passionate about conservation and gives generously to worthy efforts to protect and restore the health of fisheries.
