Spinning & Casting at Hook & Hackle!

North Fork CompositesWe are proud to help you build the best spinning and casting rods in the world! We feature blanks designed and manufactured by Gary Loomis and hit team at North Fork Composites, Woodland, WA, USA!

You cannot buy better fishing rod blanks than these ... anywhere!

North Fork Composites

Following are blanks designed for particular fishing styles. But just because we think an SBB 809 is perfect for back bouncing a few ounces in medium current for large Springers, doesn't mean that it isn't great for throwing large swim baits.

In 1964, Gary Loomis recognized that his steelhead rod wasn't the right tool for the job for spooky summer runs. He needed a rod with a moderate flex to avoid breaking off on the hookset. So he took 7 weight fly rod and made it into a spinning rod. The rest is history.

Today, we design blanks based on the specific needs of pro anglers and our blanks are the perfect tool for their stated application. However, we hope the core creativity of Gary Loomis is shared throughout our employees, our anglers, and our custom rod builders.

In that spirit, be bold, screw convention. If you want a 7'9" fast tip blank and you don't see it in the catalog, try an 8 foot plug rod, cut three inches off the bottom and order a custom decal. "Custom" is in your name, "composites" is in ours. We make a carbon fiber stick that bends, but you make it a fishing rod.
