Fenwick Fishing Rods
Fenwick fishing rods include many fishing rods and reels favored by skilled anglers. The company started in the 1940s when soldiers returning from the war turned to fishing as a favored hobby. At this same time, fiberglass was new to the market. A group of businessmen realized the potential of using fiberglass in fishing pole blanks and founded a fly fishing pole company using fiberglass.
The new company launched our of an empty residential garage near Lake Fenwick, hence the company name. Eventually, they outgrew the garage and moved to a larger facility. Business again increased in the 1970s when graphite rods became available. The strong, lightweight material created outstanding fly fishing poles.
Today, Fenwick sells fishing rods for fly fishing, freshwater and saltwater fishing. They sell trolling rods, casting rods and spinning rods.
