What Our Clients Say...

chris ward rod builder testimonial 01

"I feel I am probably as well placed as anyone to praise Chris Ward’s rod building expertise. This is because I own one of the lightest fly rods Chris has made and almost certainly one of the heaviest. The light rod is a delicate 7’10” 3 weight built on a Sage TXL blank with titanium cermet rings and custom reel seat. This is one of the most accurate casting rods I have ever encountered. Chris’s advice on choice of components was excellent."

Don Stazicker - Professional Guide & Casting Instructor

"Chris is a fantastic rod-builder, his attention to detail is second to none, his advice obviously comes from years of experience. Chris custom-made me a fly rod. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chris to build your next rod."

Darrell Howard - Fly Tyer and Fly Fisherman

"Just to let you know I have just tagged my first Sailfish - your rod definitely casts better than my old one (hardly surprising as that one has had over 100 Sails and a few Marlin too!). Thank you so much for such a beautiful product."

update:  "Just fished three days with the new rod. Casting is fine and fighting characteristics very good. Released two Striped Marlin (160 lbs and 110 lbs) so it really had trial by fire! I am very happy with it."

Garry Cullen - CEO, NRT Trading, Kenya

"I met Chris Ward in 2016 in pursuit of a professional rod builder to build two tailor made wrecking rods on Conoflex blanks. From the outset, I realised that Chris is highly professional and dedicated in the art of quality builds. His approach to customer specific design is exceptional, involving expert advice and addressing customer preference on all aspects of the build from rings, wrap, grips, dimensions, balance and personalisation/artwork. Excellent result, quality workmanship and a pleasure doing business. Highly recommended."
