Eastern Rodworks: Custom Fishing Rods, Restorations, & Repairs

Hello friends! I’m happy to share that after a 12+ year career in healthcare, I’ve left corporate life to build rods full time. This has been a dream of mine for years and while there are many uncertainties in life, the biggest regrets we have are often from not taking a chance. And who better to take a chance on than yourself?

First and foremost, I have been catching up on orders for some very patient (thank you) and loyal customers from the past couple of years. Whether it’s a simple guide repair or high end custom, I always strive to put out the highest quality work I can, and I believe this shows in the product. Quality work takes time, and I will be taking a limited number of new orders for the fall while I continue to establish the business to run on a larger scale.

I’ve been making fishing rods since I was 13 years old; to be back in the fishing industry full time, committing all my energy to it is exactly where I need to be. I have lots of exciting plans that I will share along the way and I will be expanding my social platforms (I share stories almost daily on Instagram) to document the journey. Thank you for your support, I wish you peace, health and tight lines.

Living the dream,

Matt Hetterich
