NADI Fly Rods, LLC is a small, independent fly rod building and sales company located in Springville, Utah. It was established in May 2011 by Utah fly angler and fly rod builder Randy Rodriguez with the idea to build top shelf and cost conscious fly rods, all supremely functional, light in the hand, and elegantly built.
Randy is currently in the middle of building fly rods with top shelf blanks from New Zealand blank manufacturers CTS and Swift Fly Fishing, and adding superbly manufactured reel seats, cork grips and Recoil guides from REC out of Connecticut.
The Affinity X fly blanks from CTS are among the most technologically sophisticated graphite blanks available and are only sold to custom rod builders. The same for the S2 Fastglass Epic Unidirectional blanks of Swift Fly Fishing. These will blow your fly fishing mind with their beauty and high performance capability. And the components from REC are top notch in terms of aesthetics, functionality, and technology. All this combined pushes Nadi Fly Rods to a higher level of product offerings and craftsmanship that compares favorably with the best in the high-end fly rod retail market.
While these fly rods will be sold at prices higher than previous Nadi fly rods, Randy will continue to offer moderately priced top quality stock retail and custom builds depending on each individual customer’s needs and desires. And regardless of the quality of the blanks and components, Randy will always guarantee a superbly attractive and functional fly rod in every detail.
