Why You NEED A Custom Rod

About me

Hi, I'm Doug Kidd, your go to custom fishing rod builder

I moved to Florida when I was very young and have adopted the native passion for fishing!  I have been fishing since I can remember being able to walk.  Countless trips to the Florida Keys, the Dry Tortugas, the South East Atlantic, and in various locations around the Florida Gulf Coast have only fueled my passion for wanting to create an array of fishing rods for all styles of fish slaying.

I has been building custom fishing rods since I was 10 years old.  I studied under the watchful eye of Bill Whitson where my talent grew and has since flourished into what is now, 30 years later, DK Custom Fishing Rods. During those years I managed to marry my love for the waters with my passion for rod building to create tailored rods that meet each and every one of my customer's needs.
