Tiemco Fly Rods
Since 1969, Tiemco of Japan has promoted “Think in the Field” as their tag line. Hidden within this thought, in the Asian Market,
is the belief that the stresses of modern life can be lessened by
communing with the beauty of nature, via fly fishing. Truly
understanding the art requires a blend of knowledge, gained from
observation. When combined with the correct equipment, the resulting
experience can be a memory of a lifetime. Tiemco believes in a work-life
balance and their unique products reflect this commitment.
fly rods represent a fusion of attributes not found in American fly
rods. Performance, high line speed and distance are not the goals.
Instead, balance, efficiency, sensitivity and intimacy are better
descriptive words. Technology is of course a part of the magic, but
Tiemco knows that materials and components alone don’t make a worthy fly
Although crafted from contemporary graphite, Tiemco fly rods retain a more intimate action, flexing deeper than contemporary American fly rods. Fiberglass aficionados will tip their angling hats to lost feel. Designed specifically
for the smaller trout streams of Japan, American anglers who fish
tighter waters will once again discover intimacy with a Tiemco fly rod
in their hands.
Japanese culture admires craftsmanship, and this evident in every
well-finished Tiemco fly rod. Tight thread wraps and clean epoxy work is
to be expected. High-grade cork and attractive reel seats are the norm.
A fish-counting, American angler might not require such detail, but in
Japan…fish are not caught, they are earned. The experience is the goal,
and the right fly rod adds to the experience.
selection of Tiemco fly rod models is also unique. Offered in shorter
lengths and lighter weights, these mostly-two-pieced fly rods are
designed for “feel” when crafting shorter, more-accurate, intimate
casts. When hooked, a smaller fish on a Tiemco fly rod provides a
challenge to be celebrated. Every surge and run is felt and enjoyed.
is proud to offer Tiemco fly rods to the American market. They might
not be right for every American fly angler, but if you’ve been yearning
for a fly rod with soul and sensitivity, a fly rod that adds to your
experience on the water…a Tiemco fly rod might/IS exactly what you’ve been dreaming of.
