Since 2017 we have been located in Tennessee where some great fly fishing exists. We started our journey on Florida’s Nature Coast, where some of the best light tackle, inshore flats fishing in the world exist; for species such as Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, and Tripletail. We won’t discount the Nature Coast’s Cobia, Sharks, and Tarpon fishing either.
Not only are we licensed fishing guides in the State of Tennessee, we also hold USCG Commercial Captains licenses.
We wrapped our first guide over 30 years ago. And we have worked with some of the greatest rod builders and designers in the world. Today we are Certified Rod Builders and Members of the Custom Rod Builders Guild, we perform high-quality custom rod building, rod repairs, and rod modifications on bamboo and composite rods. Rod repairs include guide and tip replacement, re-wrapping, reel seat, grip repair and replacement, and rod refinishing for casting, spinning, trolling, and fly rods. We can rebuild your old rods with new guide layouts that will blow away the original setup, and put on new grips and seats that will fit your hand like a glove.
Our custom rods are precision, no-nonsense, zero-gimmick fishing tools that fit you, your reel, and your specific fishing conditions, something you just don’t get on mass-produced factory rods. Out on the water, J.B. Weiss Rod Co. and ZombieStickz® rods will just plain destroy a comparable off-the-shelf factory rod. We offer a high quality rod you can be proud of at a very reasonable price. Whether you are fly fishing the trout streams of Tennessee with one of our presentation quality hand made split cane bamboo rods, on the flats on the nature coast, or the Florida Keys with a composite ZombieStickz® custom rod.
Our specialty is dealing with the discerning angler. Our client base is always kept confidential. Our facilities are open by appointment only, and they are convenient to the entire Greater Nashville Metro Area. We don’t kiss and tell, and every client is as important as the previous one. This degree of confidentiality allows us to cater discretely to a higher end clientele, both in the shop, and on the water.
Fish with the best, fish with J.B. Weiss Rod Co. — You won’t regret it!
