Google fishing rods and you will be overwhelmed with the number of options out there (about 98 million results). Well, I’m here to make your decision a little bit easier.

Just like most anglers, I always had a hodgepodge of different brands in my boat. I couldn’t find that one brand that I was set on until I discovered Fox River Rods. Since then, I have completely switched over to just Fox River Fishing Rods for ALL of my rods.  All open water applications and the newly released ice rods are worth a look.

Fox River Walleye Rods

For the walleye rods, Fox River comes in 5 different lengths.

Recap

Like I stated, I have been using Fox River Rods for the last two full seasons from tournaments to weekend trips and have put these rods through the wringer. They have yet to let me down and help me land my PB walleye last summer. Doesn’t matter if you are a weekend angler or a tournament pro, you will not be disappointed if you get one of these rods in your hands. I can not say enough about Chuck DiVito, a super nice guy with a passion to bring the lightest most sensitive rod to the market. He did something that a lot of companies are struggling to do, a high-quality rod without the high price point. I will proudly be representing Fox River again this summer.

Do yourself and your checkbook a favor- pick up a Fox River Rod and you will never look back!
