Custom Rods Provided by Los Pinos Fly & Tackle Shop in Albuquerque, NM


Making custom reel seats and grips have been on the forefront of my builds. I love turning custom cork and burl wood grips to any shape and size to meet the client's needs. I have made custom grips out of exotic woods such as Amboyna's Burl, Honduran Rosewood Burl, Caribbean Rosewood, Buckeye Burl and more. Some of my rods have even featured diamond inlayed in the grip butt, and jungle cock feathers in layed on the blank.
From a basic build to an unrivaled one of kind rod, if you can dream it I can build it!

  • I will only build on premium rod blanks from the likes of Sage, Epic, Etc.
  • All reel seat inserts are custom made and finished for every rod I build. All reel seat woods and composites are stabilized and custom finished by hand in my shop. I can work with all exotic woods, corks, and birch bark.
  • I will only use the highest-grade cork rings. I stack and bore the cork all in-house before turning on the lathe to the desired fit and finish of your liking.
  • The guides used in any build will only be of the highest quality such as Snake brand snake guides. I feel that they offer some of the best guides on the market today.
  • I will wrap your rod with only the finest silks from around the world. This will give your rod the perfect translucent and glossy finish after several coats of marine grade varnish and epoxy have been applied and buffed.
  • Each rod will include a proper rod sock and tube to protect your investment.
