About Us

Welcome to  the Flyrod Workshop (formerly Taniwha Rodworks), for custom fly rod makers in the UK and worldwide. 

We offer custom fly rod building supplies including our own range of premium fibreglass and carbon fibre fly rod blanks, excellent  spey and fly rod cork handles made in Portugal to our exclusive designs, a comprehensive selection of hand turned  reel seat inserts to fit our Struble, Lemke Concepts and own label fly reel seats; fly rod guides including Snake Brand, Seaguide, Pac Bay and Perfect Agates; Tire and Kimono wrapping silks and much more.

If you can tie a fly, you can build your own rod and add another dimension to your enjoyment of the sport. And if you need any help to get you started, fly rod building or buying advice, please ask.

The Flyrod Workshop is run by Mark Williams, a fishing mad Kiwi living where five chalk streams meet in Wiltshire, England.   We trade online only, sorry no visitors or telephone orders.
