Harper Creek Shop Series

Custom Graphite Fly Rods 

 

 

      Here at Harper Creek Custom Rods, we meticulously handcraft each of our Harper Creek Series custom fly rods using custom made, 2 piece, 3 peice, and 4 piece,  IM6 and IM7, graphite blanks with moderate, moderate-fast, and fast actions. Also, each of our handcrafted graphite fly rods receives a level of care and attention to detail that is simply not possible from a factory-produced fly rod where the workers are either paid by the number of rods they build in a day or, are under the strictures of a quota to produce as many as possible per day. Therefore, we can afford to take the time necessary to find the spine of each section of the rod blank and then, we hand-carve a custom designed fly rod grip from Flor grade cork for each rod we build prior to assembly!

 

 

Fly Rod Action -

 

      The action of a fly rod is determined by the percentage of the blank that normally bends during casting. For instance, a Moderate-Fast blank bends from 1/3 to 2/5 of the way down the blank when casting. See the chart below:



Blank Action

Bendage

Extra Fast
10-15%
Fast 15-25%
Medium Fast 25-35%
Moderate Fast 35-40%
Moderate 50%
Slow 100%
