Fly rods

Brittany Fly Shop offers a fine selection of quality fly rods to meet the needs of all fly fishermen, beginners and experts alike, and to suit all budgets.

Are you a progressing, experienced or even expert fly fisherman?

Do you fish occasionally, regularly, frequently or frenetically?

Do you fish in France or abroad, in fresh or salt water?

We have THE fly rod to suit your needs, your tastes, your level and your budget.

You're a beginner and you're not sure what to choose for your first fly rod, a tool, a jewel, a partner that should give you great thrills on the water.

This fly rod, so much imagined, dreamed of and desired, should enable you to make rapid progress at all levels of the fishing strategy that will lead you to success and pleasure.

Casting performance and accuracy, lightness, balance with the reel and line assembly, aesthetics and stealth of the fly rod are essential criteria to take into account.

At the end of the day, it's all about the comfort and sensations that a fly rod provides during the fishing action, casting, fly landing, hooking and fighting the fish that every fly fisherman should be looking for.

The ultimate goal: happiness at the water's edge.

The quality of the components (blanks, guides, wrappings, handle, reel seat, rod cloth, protective tube) is crucial, as is the guarantee and after-sales service in the event of a problem.

To help you avoid making the wrong choices that can lead to frustration, disappointing results, slow progress and unnecessary expense, I've drawn on my many years of experience as a passionate fly fisher and pro fly fishing guide and fly casting instructor to offer you a range of successful products that won't let you down.

Depending on your body type, the type of fly fishing you plan to do and the type of aquatic environment you frequent, I probably have the ideal rod, the natural extension of your arm.

If you're looking for an all-purpose tool or a specific fly rod for a particular type of fishing or species, we've got the rod you really need.

My selection of fly rods


Guideline fly rods
Choosing one brand over another in the forest of offers, references and origins available on the market is no easy task.

I have chosen to associate my image and reputation with the Scandinavian brand Guideline, whose fly rods are of unrivalled quality.

Guideline offers several series of fly rods to suit all situations, all fish and all fly angler profiles.

There is a wide range of prices to suit all budgets and requirements.

The common denominator of Guideline fly rods is that they are all remarkable tools for having fun, performing well, being efficient and progressing in your technique while fooling many fish.

They are the result of a combination of cutting-edge technology and the know-how of real fly fishermen, experts and engineers who have spent and continue to spend countless hours at the water's edge testing each Guideline fly rod in real fishing situations.

The superior quality of the components used and the finishes, the finesse of the design and the amazing performance of Guideline fly rods mean I can recommend them without the slightest hesitation.

I offer 9 series for a total of around 50 models.


Brittany Fly Fishing Custom Fly Rods

If you want something done right, do it yourself.
That's why I'm offering you a range of 23 models of "home-made" rods, Brittany Fly Fishing Custom Fly Rods, all manufactured with the utmost care in the European Union.

Designed, tested and tried according to the criteria described above, they are offered at reasonable, even low prices with the aim of giving wider access to exceptional fly rods, known as "top of the range".

The many options I offer also enable you to own a fly rod that is unique and out of the ordinary in terms of finish.

Brittany Fly Fishing Custom Fly Rods are on a par with the best of the "big US brands", as the many fly fishermen who have put their trust in me and who now use them, often exclusively, can attest.
