About Us

At Livingston Rod we are a boutique manufacturer of Made in Montana Graphite and Fiberglass Fly Rods, hand built, one at a time. We set out to design distinct lines of fly rods suited to the streams of Western Montana and Yellowstone Park. Since our inception, this is exactly what we have achieved, believing the feel of the rod and how it presents your fly is the cornerstone of fly rod design. All of our fly rods have received extensive testing in the environments they were designed for.

We are a family owned company coming from a family full of fly fishermen. I have been fly fishing for 23 years, building rods for 21 years, and have fished, guided, and enjoyed the waters of Montana for over 10 years. Our philosophy is to provide the angler with an heirloom quality fly rod you will cherish for a lifetime.
