Livingston Rod Co. Traditional Graphite Fly Rod

, ,

Rods that you can pass down.

Made to order. Please allow extra time for shipping.


I noticed something interesting in the fly fishing industry: constant innovation. A lot of my customers have expressed that they miss the feel of the graphite rods from 20-30 years ago.

Many feel they were some of the best dry fly rods ever created so I decided to replicate the feel of these traditional graphite rods. What I’ve created are old school rods utilizing original modulus graphite, internal spigot ferrules, unpainted and unsanded. These rods have a buttery action that you have to cast to believe.

All of the Livingston Rod Co. rods are made by hand by Dusty Smith here in Paradise Valley, please call when making an order so that we can discuss timeframe details.
