The fall salmon season is upon us, as well as the summer Steelhead. One of my favorite times of the year
It was my nephew Ryan’s 8th birthday this past weekend and I decided to make him his own custom fishing rod. He has come such a long way in his fishing ability and his passion continues to grow which makes this uncle VERY happy. His Dad got him a brand new Symetre 2500 for his birthday to put on this rod. Ryan was so excited for his first fishing outfit, and is excited to continue to learn more and more about fishing. Tight lines Ryan…..I am a very fortunate and a proud uncle!
Rogue 7′ 6-10# blank, Fuji VSS Reel Seat, split grip cork handle, Fuji Alconite guides, wrapped in electric blue with blue/silver metallic twist thread.
Tight Lines and screaming drags!!
Here is a long time friend and customer getting it done in So-Cal with a Reel Tech Custom. We designed this build to be used for a light surf fishing stick. He absolutely loves the rod and has been catching LOTS of fish on it.
Just what Paul wanted…..A light action surf rod. We designed this build with a Rogue 7’6″ 4-8# one piece blank, Black REC Titanium Guides, and a split grip cork handle with a Fuji VSS Reel Seat. I love seeing my creations being put to use, especially with a band in them, and smiles on the customers faces
Here is a nice Spotfin Croaker and a Corbina taken in the So Cal surf on his new rod:
Thank you Paul, I love the photos, and I am so happy you are enjoying your new Reel Tech Custom light surf rod !! Tight Lines
Cant believe how fast time flies, my two nephews, Ryan 7, and Dylan 6, love being a part of what Uncle John enjoys in the outdoors, whether it be hunting or fishing.
My Dad, my Brother in Law, and I are looking forward to watching them continue to grow into responsible and ethical outdoorsmen. Any day taking them fishing is a fantastic day. These two must learn in their sleep or be alot more attentive than I imagined. Another year of fishing and these two look like naturals with their casting, fish fighting, and desire. I am so proud of them
Cant wait to get them onto their first salmon and steelhead SOON!!
Got a nice message and photo from a happy angler. The photo is of a DANDY winter steelhead caught on his Reel Tech Custom Spinning Rod.
Here are Matty’s words:
“Here is one pf my 2 that I caught today. The rod fishes great I just love it. We hooked 7 boated 6 and kept 6 great day on the water.”
Thank you for sharing the photo Matty. You made my day. I am very happy you love the rods. I wish you continued success and happiness my friend!!
Tight Lines and Screaming Drags to ALL!
Here are a few photos from our trip today. We had a fantastic day on the river with my friends Jon Geyer and John Brackett. Had some sun, some rain, and some hail. We brought 10 fish to the net….all released quickly back to the water. We lost one hog that John hooked that had the head shakes of a real T.O.A.D., big shoulders for sure. Never saw that one, ran hard, stayed deep, and the hook pulled out after a good battle. Oh well, cant win em all.
We got some nice shiny hard pullin’ acrobatic winter fish. Found another dandy one that couldn’t resist the Reel Tech Custom Steelhead jig. I just love the photos of yet another mouth stuffed full of marabou. That makes my day!
Great times with great friends…..what could be better??
Tight Lines and Screaming drags to all!
Had a great day on the water with friends George Freitas and Alan Odom. We landed a couple and lost another. Not an epic day of fishing, but a great day with great weather.
The fishing will only get better here on the Rogue, there is lots of fish coming!
Tight lines and screaming drags!!
Spent a couple days on a wonderful Oregon River with my friend Jon Geyer and Kim Parara. We had some rain, some sun, and some willing fish. We got a couple of Dandy fish on this trip. Good fun with great people!
