Never lose your rod again!

YAKRODS™ is an industry first with a retention system specifically designed for kayakers. As kayak anglers ourselves, we’ve felt the heartache of watching our favorite rod slide overboard into the abyss. Quality fishing gear is an investment and we want to help you protect it.

Bait finesse fishing, what a blast! If you have tried BFS fishing you understand why it is becoming so popular. “Y-BFS” rod has been a fun project for us over the past couple years.  We sent prototypes back and forth to avid BFS angler, Justin Kivett. Justin crafts some of his own BFS baits and fishes BFS style fishing, almost exclusively. This was the angler to give our BFS rod the shake down.  With his help, we finally came up with a sweet little powerhouse! “Y-BFS”could go head to head with any BFS fishing rod on the market and be the victor! Definitely, the rod to add if you are thinking of giving BFS fishing a try. Careful though, it is addicting!

Our premium composite blanks are USA made and designed for superior performance. Left unsanded, they offer rugged durability but retain their tournament winning sensitivity. These rods are lightweight, strong, and extremely sensitive. They deliver just the right parabolic bend to keep your tournament-winning monster pegged at the side of your yak. We paired that with the award-winning American Tackle guides, and high-performance components, for a truly powerful package. Beware, our rods are known to improve accuracy and increase casting distance!


Our unique retention system doubles as a counter-balance giving you all-day comfort without fatigue.
