Welcome to our Rod-Building Shop, Santiago Chile

Rod-Building Shop, Santiago Chile

Our Rod-Building Shop in Santiago Chile will open its doors this November, 2015. Our unique facility and workshop will be located in the center of Santiago, near Park O’Higgins and metro station Rondizzoni. We bring seventeen years of rod making in North America to our little shop. We wish to offer anglers in Chile our finest custom fishing rods made using the best rod blanks and components available.

Besides offering fine finished products our rod-building workshop will provide a comfortable environment for those who wish to build their own rod. We provide instruction and guidance as well as the tools and materials necessary. We take care of the final steps, cleaning and preparing the rod for epoxy, and applying the clear coat finish over the thread wraps. Don’t forget the inscription or custom 360 dpi labels that can further personalize the rod. When the final coat is dry a rod sock and hard tube can be matched to cary away the prized finished product.

We’re happy to invite other “Cañaderos” (my made-up Spanish word for Chilean Rodmakers) of all skill levels to visit us and share rod-building practices over a cup of coffee or tea. We would be happy to assist with rod projects and we would be open to learning new techniques. This is what inspired us to call our shop Rodmakers of Chile. Its the community that we wish to cultivate. Contact us, come in and have a conversation about these special tools which we use to pursue wild fish. We’ve accomplished something if we could inspire you to take an angling adventure.

My name is Michael Munoz, and I’m a rod maker, a philosopher, and a dreamer. I’d like to share my passion for fine custom rods and help you create something special.
