Flex Coat Rod Building Components

Flex Coat Rod Building Components

As we are situated centrally to Lake Ontario, Erie and Huron, and the corresponding inland watersheds, we build on any blank for Float, Fly, Spin, and or Baitcast.

Be it a custom 11 to 13’ Float Rod for fishing the Nine Mile or Big Head River, a baitcast with a twist for migratory steelhead on the Niagara, Saugeen or Maitland River, or a custom Fly rod for the Grand or Credit River locally, we will assist in your needs.

Most damaged rods are able to be repaired – one just has to decide whether it’s for sentimental value or to keep a “lucky stick” still in commission.

Customization only stops at your creativity and pocket book constraints.

If we do inventory what you are looking for in terms of components, let us know and we will see if we can get it for you.

Our Heritage:
Glenn Struble Manufacturing Company was founded in 1974 by Glenn Struble, a mechanical engineer with a love for fly fishing and commitment to excellence. Struble’s designs and quality quickly became, and continue to be, the industry standard around the globe. The business was first housed in Glenn’s garage at his home in Roseburg, Oregon. The company quickly grew and eventually moved to Sutherlin, Oregon. Glenn Struble passed away in 1993, leaving a legacy that we are dedicated to preserving. His unwavering commitment to excellence in design, quality, and performance remains our central objective. Because of this, Struble Manufacturing continues to be recognized as the industry leader in product quality and customer service. Glenn’s wife, Juanita, continued the company’s proud history of producing precision fly fishing components until 2005 when the company was purchased by Jeffrey Pentecost, a Montana native with a love for fly fishing and a passion for innovation. His personal standards for quality, integrity, and service match Struble’s long-standing practice of delivering only the finest. As always, Struble products are made by our own craftsmen using only the very highest quality materials. The company now operates in Portland, Oregon. Achieving excellence through the constant pursuit of perfection
