Every once in a great while I like to deviate from fly tying related posts to emphasize fly fishing in general, which is why we tie flies in the first place. After all, things like fly rods are what send our labor of love flying through air landing on top or under the water to try and catch that next fish.
I’ve had the pleasure of chatting with the President of Beaverkill Rod Company, Anthony Magardino through email for some time now. He is a class act and I hope to get my hands on a new Beaverkill Fly Rod next spring sometime. Please read below to find out more about the Beaverkill Rod Company and check out what they have to offer over on their website.
Originally, founded in 2001, the Beaverkill Rod Company is named for the Beaverkill River, one of the most legendary fly-fishing destinations in the Catskill Mountains.In the 1880’s Theodore Gordon cast the first dry fly in the US on the famed Beaverkill in Roscoe, N.Y. or so the story goes. The fact is Gordon did introduce dry fly fishing to the US and he fished the Beaverkill with great success. The Beaverkill is, of course, one of the most famous trout streams in the world. For us the name combines tradition, innovation, and value. Anthony Magardino, has spent every summer since childhood on the banks of this legendary river learning the art of fly fishing, and he now honors that connection with this innovative new line of fly rods.Take your passion for fishing to an intense new level with a new concept in fly fishing rods manufactured by The Beaverkill Rod Company, based in New York… and, proudly manufactured in the USA.
