Checking Out Fenwick Fly Rods
There is 50 years of history behind Fenwick Fly Rods and it seems to be growing in size and grandeur with every passing year. Fishermen all over the world have recognized the company as one of the big fishing names. Started in Kent, Washington a group of five Seattle fishermen decided to form a top-notch rod company using new fiberglass blanks and they have never looked back.
The company grew to make much more than just fiberglass rods, and have received many different awards for design and technology. The company really came into their own in the 1960’s getting recognized for their prowess in design. After gaining some steam two talented engineers joined the ranks and the company moved forward through the 70’s capturing the imagination of the fishing public with amazing light, strong fiberglass fly fishing rods. In the early 70’s though, something huge would hit that would change the world of fly-fishing forever.
Fenwick Fly Rods didn’t just happen over night; they continually pushed the envelope and even were first to introduce a graphite rod. Fenwick had captured the next big thing in graphite and skyrocketed through the ranks. The company has branched out to develop fishing rods for all styles of fishing and continues to impress industry insiders and consumers alike with a love and passion for fishing that many other companies just don’t seem to evoke any longer.
You’ll be hard pressed to find another company that has dedicated itself to fishing with near reckless abandon like the Fenwick name, that’s for sure.
