NEW Rewards Programme - Start saving today to get a 10% off voucher


Just to say having placed and received my first order to yourselves in early January, I am admiring what had been my old and tired sea trout rod, which is now sporting new guides, pretty well whipped on by myself, epoxy finished, and with a salmon decal. This was all due to your very professional and easy to follow website, with everything required for rod building, including the most helpful instructional  videos, all under the one roof.

Just a quick note to feedback on the Evoke 3 lb tc carp blanks and the 11ftv Evoke waggler blank that I ordered from you. Rods and fittings got across the Channel within a week for a DIY build and have now spent some time on the small French water they were bought for. I built them all with full cork handles because I am old fashioned and you just can't beat a bit of cork! The carp blanks are really lovely fishing rods with a nice progressive through action...not long distance poles by any stretch but an absolute pleasure with a mid double hanging on.   The match rod beds past the handle! I found this out thanks to a 4lb tench on my last trip....awesome blank,  oh and that lovely thru action just makes you smile

I ordered some rod guides at 13:15 yesterday and I received them at 10:00 this morning. Correct guides and correct size. Excellent service ! If only more companies could conduct their business as well as yourselves.

Alan Scott

Excellent service, thank you.


A quick note to say, thank you for the service I received from your company and especially your staff. It was exemplary and could not have been better. My order was completed over the telephone, due to the fact that my computer had crashed the day before, after I had noted the goods reference numbers. Once more many thanks, and I will of coarse use your service again in the future and I will not hesitate in referring you, to any of my friends and colleagues.

Michael Watson

I would like to say a big thank you for my order, it arrived today safe and sound. I only wish that I could have got this kind of products 40 years ago, once again thank you.

Mike Piotrowski

I just thought I'd drop you a line to say what a fantastic tool the Pacific Bay guide wrapping stand is. I used it for the first time last week to replace a broken eye on a travel rod I am taking to Canada next week. It did the job in half the time it took using my fly tying bobbin holder and the result turned out better than the original factory whipping. I can thoroughly recommend it.

Mike Tritton

I recieved the fighting butt and it fits perfectly. Just wanted to say thanks for the great service.

Nick Lovegrove
