A LakeLady Custom Fishing Rod is perfectly fitted in two important ways:
- Physically Fit to the specific physical characteristics of the owner
- Functionally Fit for the type of fishing it will be used for.
A LakeLady Custom Rod is designed and built specifically for you and the way you fish.
No two people are the same. Your physical stature, size of hands, length of forearm and overall arm length dictate the butt grip length and diameter for casting and spinning rods as well as the placement of the stripping guide on fly rods. A rod that “fits” ergonomically is a joy to fish with.
Balance is a very important feature in making a rod “feel good” to you as well as in reducing casting fatigue. When properly balanced with your reel, the outfit feels “weightless”. The reel that will be used is critical to the balance of the rod.
A fishing rod is like any other sporting gear. When it fits properly, you get better results.
We build on the finest and highest quality materials we can source world wide. For example St. Croix rod blanks, Portuguese cork, Alps seats and guides, fine rod wrapping threads, and the best finishes available.
Premium components mean little if they do not combine to provide a better tool for the job. Rod length, rod action, rod power, grip length, and other physical features of the rod are all important elements to make this tool do what you want it to — catch more fish.
You will actually catch more fish with a custom rod that fits.
There is a rewarding visual appeal to owning a custom rod. Think of how much time you spend looking at the rod in your hand. You can look at a bare rod blank or you can look at a beautiful design that reflects your personal interests and taste.
Consultation Is Crucial

If you don’t know a Roberts wrap from a burrito, don’t worry. We are here to talk with you about these features in plain language. You are hiring us, initially, as consultants. It is our job to help you design the perfect rod as individual as you are.
