Since the time owner and founder, Matt Sewell, built his first fishing rod nearly a decade ago, the mission has been to offer the finest quality custom fishing rods that the industry has to offer. Matt has built and will continue to build some of the finest custom fishing rods that are being used internationally in some of the most dreamt about fishing destinations around the world.

One of the inherent differences from other custom rod builders is that while stunning to the eye, his fishing rods have become synonymous with performance first and foremost. What good is a beautiful fishing rod if it cannot perform? Built on that simple, yet vital foundation, Sewell has excitedly launched a production line of rods that brings reliability, value and performance at a price for everyone to enjoy.

Join the Revolution……unless you have simply settled for the norm….

Why Sewell Rods?


While the mission of the Sewell Revolution is to provide the finest performing fishing rods in the industry without all the bells and whistles that all too often cloud the functionality of most rods on the market, there are times when a custom rod is needed or simply desired. Whether it is a preference to a certain handle configuration, a very application or species specific rod or simply a favorite color or theme, we have you covered.

The Sewell Rods roots have always been custom builds and Matt still builds and oversees every rod that is custom built. Matt takes the time from the moment of your inquiry to understand what your intentions of the rod are and with countless award-winning builds under his belt, he truly asks the important questions you may not think of. This initial time spent finding the right rod for you is nearly as important as the build itself and Matt takes great pride in that unique trait.

Matt’s custom builds range from a single rod to a fully outfitted sport fishing vessel and span countless fishing applications, from light fly rods for Bahamas grey ghost bonefish, to standup outfits for drag screaming pelagics. In addition, Sewell offers the ability to create a truly unique, one-of-kind gift for that special fisherperson in your life, so feel free to bring your ideas. Using the finest in quality components backed by impeccable craftsmanship and service, Sewell will provide you with a truly special piece of nautical art that performs to your exact specifications. The options are endless, so give us a call today! 239-560-8252
