Great Bay Rod Company opened its manufacturing operations in 2004 with the Winding Brook rod series. The series was then and remains today, a beautifully casting, small stream rod.
A traditional marketing plan would call for a launch of best sellers, not a niche of a niche. Following trends just isn’t us. Being unique is.
Great Bay Rod Company offers the widest variety of specialty rods in the fly fishing industry. We’re small, we’re lean, and we’re responsive. Our goal is to manufacture affordable rods that solve angling problems. If you’re looking for the perfect Czech nymphing rod, switch rod, still water rod, or saltwater rod, we’ve got you covered.

We prefer the path less traveled and it shows in our rod designs. We listen to our customers and pay attention to their needs. As a result our rods
feature those performance attributes most often requested. In the Fall of 2008, we introduced our SFT fiberglass rod series and it has become one of our most popular series as anglers take a step back into a slightly more relaxed casting stroke. These rods don’t look like your Dad’s fiberglass rods. And they sure don’t cast like ‘em, either.
