After seeing and casting one of Mike’s custom built fly rods I had no hesitation in having him craft one for myself. His attention to detail and personal touch from the high quality blank , custom engraved reel seat to the feather inlay this rod is a one of a kind. The performance is as good as could be expected from a high end premium rod. Smooth casting and exceptional feel. This has been my go to rod.
I have always considered myself to be “lucky”, and three months ago, I found a real treasure. I discovered something I didn’t even know that I was missing. I was very comfortable with my fishing gear and thought I owned some of the best. Then I met Mike and things changed. Now I have a top quality (Lucky) rod that performs far beyond any I have ever experienced-and pretty too!
Thank you Mike!!
You are truly a master of your craft.
Dear Mr. Franklin,
So sad for years I fished with an old 6 weight that I thought was “good enough”. Getting my new rod from you was a real treat, not only for me, but when the fish see it up close, I SWEAR they start smiling!! It not only puts the fly where I want it, but it looks real pretty doin’ it. I got the blank that is blue/purple that seems to change colors depending on what kind of fish I catch!!
I’m lovin’ it! Thank you!
My 9′, 3 wt. Luckyrod is my go to rod for all small stream and river fishing involving trout up to 14 inches. It has incredible accuracy and strength that I have not found in many of my name brand rods. Mike Franklin, the owner of Luckyrods, produces a quality rod at very reasonable prices allowing all of us the opportunity to add many rods to our arsenals. His customer service is stellar as well as his engagement with the customer learning what attributes they want in their rod. My Luckyrod was designed just for me! Thanks Mike.
