Jefferson Rod Co. is a custom fly rod shop in the State of Jefferson. Built one at a time—to order—we utilize simple processes to create uniquely beautiful tools for discerning fly anglers.
What we get excited about here is building relationships with other anglers and equipping them with a carefully paired rod to maximize their experience on the water. Each angler has a unique story and our extensive time on the water allows us to relate and equip according to the specific needs and requests of the angler.
Our craft was honed through many seasons invested in 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 designing and crafting 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 ignored by their state’s governments. The two regions joined forces in attempt to form a 51st 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.
Five percent of our sales revenue is donated to our friends at Fly Fishing Collaborative.

FFC is also passionate about conservation and gives generously to worthy efforts to protect and restore the health of fisheries.
