Custom Freshwater Rods

We believe in the soul of fly fishing where accuracy, presentation and feel should be prioritized over distance, power and speed.  



For 25 years, Tom Morgan Rodsmiths has been designing and building the finest heirloom quality custom graphite, bamboo, and fiberglass fly rods in the world. We collaborate with every customer to handcraft their perfect rod, one at a time, with an uncompromising commitment to precision and perfection.

Our Roots

Tom had never built a rod when he purchased R.L. Winston in 1973, but over the course of 45 years, he became an icon in the fly fishing industry.  Quite simply, Tom worked tirelessly in pursuit of building the perfect rod. Tom Morgan Rodsmiths evolved from a dream to build a limited number of superior fly rods for appreciative anglers.

Our Mission

Experienced anglers, who expect grace and harmony when a rod is cast, know our standard of craftsmanship is an investment in excellence. This is what makes a great rod timeless, and we believe that a TMR rod will accompany you on your most meaningful fishing trips until you hand it off to the next generation.

Our Philosophy

Tom once said, "rivers haven't changed and fish haven't changed, so if you've got a great fly rod, why change it?" As the industry chases stiffer tapers and faster actions, we've taken a different approach. We believe that the soul of fly fishing lies in a great rod that loads deeply on each cast and provides pinpoint accuracy on each cast.
