WELCOME Friends!!


Almost Heaven Custom Fly Rods is a small custom fly rod company

owned by Andrew Nix in Morgantown, WV.  I specialize in building truly custom fly rods for the avid fly rod angler.  While my primary focus is on small stream rods, fine rods of all sizes and weights are available to order.  I do not keep a "stock" of rods, each rod is built individually to the specifications of the buyer - blank, hardware, wrap style and color, grip shape and reel seat wood insert.  I turn my own grips and wood inserts to add an extra bit of customization to your rod.  Price varies according to blank and components, but generally a custom rod is $50-100 less than a commercial rod using the same blank.

“I'm the proud owner of 2 rods built by Drew Nix, a 6'6" 2 wt, and a 7'6" 4wt.   Hopefully, I will own more in the future!  The attention to detail and workmanship Drew puts into the rods he builds is second to none, and they are works of love and not a mass produced "production" item.  All you have to do is look at the fit and finish of the rod and make a cast with one, and you'll be hooked (pardon the pun)!"
