Back in around 2011, I was looking for someone to do a decorative wrap on a fishing rod for me. It proved very difficult to find someone able to do it in Canada. So, I bought a book and decided to give it a try. I simply fell in love with doing the wraps and I soon ran out of fishing rods to do them on. The next logical step was to start making fishing rods, so I bought a book and learned how to do that with the help of many hours of Youtube videos, a couple of broken rod blanks and some help from some very dedicated people in the rod making community.
Many rods later and quite a few more discussions with some people who I have come to be friends with, Hogman's Custom Rods was born. I am grateful to all of the people who allow me to continue doing what I love. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the reaction to a vision that my clients finally see realized. That is why I do it!
