Remaining cutting edge and
creative is sometimes a difficult and challenging task. Leisure and
sport fishing is extremely old and this industry (custom rod building) is
quite large although feeling tight knit. Many have chosen the
profession and through experience have become proficient experts in the
field. Through years of trial and error, hard work and dedication,
these masters have contributed ideas and principles that are now
considered the standard by which rods are to be built. In short,
coming up with new and innovated ideas becomes harder as time elapses.
Most of them have already been thought up! The competition among
true professional builders (not to mention amateur hobbyists posing as
professionals) is fierce. And, as frustrating as it may be, many
"competitors" choose to mimic rather than forge their own path and remain
unique, ultimately leading to consumer confusion and purchase
that said, you have my commitment:
To continue to produce custom and handcrafted
fishing rods using build practices that either meet or exceed the
To continue to dream up and implement new
ideas from "outside the box" in an effort to offer the very best
built rods that perform flawlessly
This commitment has
been proven with I.R.C.'s Spring Fed Float Rod Series (using multi-pc. fly
blanks for float applications) and with multi-functional "switch rods"
(float, fly, spinning, centrepin and light spey all-in-one). Through years
of experimentation and countless builds, I've carved out a niche.
My positive reputation is based on delivering on this commitment now and
into the future. You have my word that this will always be I.R.C.'s
controlling purpose and my personal goal!
is rolling out a new category of fishing rods to the website. These
particular rods will fall under the "Signature Builds" moniker.
Fishing rods that stand out in complexity and uniqueness will be found in
this area with a short description of their components. Not all the
builds that are shipped from the shop are as involved; I still build
stealth (simple, but high performance none-the-less) rods that function
extremely well, but these rods qualify as "Signature Builds" because they
are a cut above the rest in design and appearance. With that said,
the fishing rods featured in this section are (in my opinion) the very
best of the best that I.R.C. has to offer you as a potential client.
