Your Builder

Ralph Craft
CEO / Founder / Crafter
Ralph Craft, the creator and founder of Crafty One Customs, built his first fishing rod in 2005. He strives to transfer his unique rod-building talent & passion to fellow anglers who have aspirations of a fishing rod they can call their own. A custom fishing rod should be something as unique and individual as the angler, while performing and surpassing the quality of rods that consumers can get “off the shelf”
