My name is Mark Sawyer. Fishing has been a passion, hobby, and love from my first cast many, many years ago. Fishing has brought me many new friendships and endless joy. I build some of the finest quality rods in Albuquerque, New Mexico where I also run a premier fly and tackle shop alongside my wife, Cindy.
In 1982, I built my first rod and have been engulfed in the passion of rod building ever since. I have built and repaired many different styles and types of rods over the years, but my true love always brings me to the fly rod. Since that first rod back in ‘82, I have built many rods for friends, family, customers, and myself. I have experimented with many different techniques and materials and can build custom rods on any blank you choose. I have crafted some of the finest rods around in both carbon and fiberglass. I work with some of the largest manufacturers such as Sage, Winston, Mystic, and Epic to procure only the best custom rod.
