Say hello to the Tightloop Fly Rod, the perfect artful extension of the true fisherman. Tightloop Fly Rods are some of the sweetest looking rods we’ve seen to date. Made by hand in a small town in Romania (also know as the heart of Transylvania), George Dan Minculete started out building custom rods in 1999, and has never looked back. His passion for sleek, simple, and well executed rods continues to grow, creating heirloom quality fly rods that go above and beyond the perfect rod. Handmade using some of the best blanks on the market (the fiberglass Swift Epic 686 salsa as seen above), he uses nothing but the finest materials ranging from beautiful wood inserts, to stainless steel, titanium, steel, bronze, and aluminum. Tightloop Fly Rods go hand and hand with what we stand for, aesthetic beauties that are not only functional, but are also made to last more than just one lifetime.
