No Thanks
American Made Veteran Owned


Thank you for visiting Salty Dog Fishing Rods. We are a small fishing rod company that proudly produces a small number of high quality fishing rods. We started off in 2017 making three piece travel rods, catering to the high end traveling angler. In early 2020 we launched our Island Hopper series of one piece spinning rods, specifically designed for targeting inshore saltwater species. Our company promotes sustainable sport fishing practices. All of our fishing rods and even our travel rod cases are proudly assembled in the USA. Being a veteran owned company we proudly donate 1% of the purchase price of our fishing rods to the Disabled American Veterans (also known as the DAV).

  • "To be honest I know nothing about fishing rods. I heard about your rods from my brother and we bought one for my Dad (who is retired US Army) for his birthday. He was soo excited. Thank you!"
