Rim Country Custom Rods is a world class manufacturer of custom fishing rods specializing in all types of fresh water rods including spinning, casting and fly rods. Every fishing rod manufactured by RCCR is static tested, as well as actual casting, prior to final size selection and placement of guides. This testing is critical to ensure maximum casting performance of the rod and most importantly fighting the fish. In addition, we use only proven materials to build our rods. This includes using only perfect blanks from our preferred suppliers to achieve high sensitivity and reliability. We do not use "seconds" or "reject" blanks to build our rods. Nor do we use materials sold by private sellers where the age and storage conditions are not know or controlled. All of the materials used in the assembly of our rods are purchased from reputable rod dealers. These are suppliers that we have used in the past and have a high confidence level in their products.

We also do repair work of fishing rods ranging from tip top replacement to reel seat replacement. No job is too big or too small. We keep a supply of the most common components on hand to get you back on the water faster. When material is available, we will fix your rod on the spot, if possible or within 24 hours if curing is involved. If we do not have the material on hand, repairs will be made within 48 hours after receiving the material. If you're in Rim Country and damage your rod, give us a call.

James Goughnour, our rod builder, is available for speaking seminars and/or demonstrations related to building or repairing custom fishing rods. Rim Country Custom Rods sells rod building equipment and supplies, contact us for your rod building needs.

A handcrafted custom fishing rod will cost more than a production rod bought in your local tackle shop. The cost of a rod is driven by two primary factors: The blank and the guides. The Blank is the most expensive part of the rod and while the guides are the second most expensive. The sensitivity, power, action, casting ease and accuracy, and comfort to the user are directly related to the blank and guides. At Rim Country Custom Rods we work with each individual customer to find that perfect match of rod material within the price range of the customer. We at RCCR understand value for your dollars. We will discuss options, make recommendations and work with each customer to exceed their expectation. We guarantee there will be no "surprise" price increases during manufacturing.


Every rod sold by Rim Country Custom Rods is guaranteed to be free of workmanship defects. In most cases, blank manufacturing companies also warrant their products. These warranties provided by the manufacturer are also included in your guarantee from Rim Country Custom Rods. Just to be clear here, if you break the tip off your rod in your rod locker or door, or if you step on a guide and break it, these are not considered workmanship defects and arenot covered under the warranty. However, RCCR will be happy to repair these rods at a reasonable price. Shipping and handling costs are not included in the warranty.
