About Us


While the actions of each one of the over 250 rods we make vary, the reactions we get from anglers rarely does. Unless you’ve had the pleasure of browsing through our catalog in the past, you probably didn’t realize the diversity of our selection. We are, as most anglers know, a specialty rod manufacturer. Yet, as most anglers don’t know, our specialty is variety.

The process of building the perfect rod for one fishery isn’t so much about knowing “how” to build a quality rod (that’s a given,) it’s about knowing the exact characteristics that anglers require to maximize their success. Researching, testing, prototyping, and actually fishing every concept for a rod that comes through our door is one of the major attributes that separates us from the others. And over the years, there’s been no shortage of concepts.

The surf casting clubs and tournament directors along the east coast are always redefining rod actions based on the latest techniques. In the West, it’s the salmon and steelhead junkies and professional guides that keep us busy. All across the country and around the globe, whether it’s bass, trout, crappie, sturgeon, tuna, walleye, sharks, catfish, steelhead, dorado, blue gill, paddle fish, chinook salmon, dollys, halibut, pike, muskie, carp, bull sharks, roosters, rainbows, chum salmon, silver salmon, Atlantic salmon, stripers, kokanee, browns, pompano, jack crevalle, rock fish, fluke, grouper, or sailfish, the ideas keep coming in and the new rods keep going out.

We learned that it takes this level of commitment to survive in an industry so saturated with choices, but making the choice easiest for you is our primary goal. Whatever passion or opportunities you wish to explore, there’s always a Lamiglas rod, and in most cases several, to maximize your experience. You might not need them all today, but when that day comes, you’ll know exactly where to turn.

This kind of foresight comes with every Lamiglas rod we build. Exactly how we incorporate this element of confidence is outlined in great detail on the following pages. But it’s perhaps best explained by the tens of thousands of anglers out there who already possess it. Look for them next time you’re on the water. They’re the ones with fish in the nets and confidence written all over their faces.

Fish with confidence. It’s not just a tag line. It’s a mindset. A state of ultimate contentment achieved only when every factor within your control is controlled with absolute flawlessness. The cast. The presentation. The strike detection. The hook set. The fight. And the victory dance.
