There are so many wonderful bamboo fly rod makers around the country these days. Sweetgrass Rods does not presume that anything the company builds will be better than what can be found within this gathering of great craftsmen. What makes Sweetgrass Rods different is the eighty years of collective experience that the team brings to each and every rod built. And since fly fishing is a way of life in the Twin Bridges area, in many ways, this influence permeates everything we do.
It is our intention to do our share to preserve the traditions of a unique American craft. In an age where time is money and more cheaply produced outsourced goods rule the corporate world, we believe there is still a place for quality craftsmanship done the old fashioned way. What we build will have a heart, soul, and spirit connected to our sense of history, community, and obligation to the resource that makes what we do possible.
