Walton Rods officially launched in March of 2017, but has been working behind the scenes since 2015 to get things up and running. Owner, Brad Smith, founded with the company one simple goal in mind: to make the best rods possible for the right price. His goal was also to sell rods that are handcrafted in America by American hands. They were able to build a fly rod with high quality components along with 68 million modulus graphite blanks, and charge much less than what fishermen are used to paying.
Walton Rods has created a perfect rod with a tapered design, a soft tip, a composite grip, snake guides, a lifetime warranty and many more well thought-out features to provide the best possible experience to customers. We’ve been fortunate enough to get to know Brad over the past year or so, and we’ve been fishing with his rods during that time—we 100% back this brand!
