      Never lose your rod again!

      The Yakrods ‘Black Line’ is an industry first with a retention system specifically designed for the 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.

      To protect your investment, every order comes standard with our custom retention system. Included in this is our 4 ft. Quiet Tether and NTA endcap to ensure your rod never leaves your side.


      Built on a high modulus premium graphite blank, 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 Microwave Air guides for a truly powerful combo.


      We understand that space on a kayak is a premium. That’s why we’ve tuned our rods to offer a shortened handle without sacrificing balance. Our unique retention system doubles as a counter-balance giving you all-day comfort without fatigue. We coupled that with soft-touch technology for a downright luxurious experience.

      Great finesse rod

      So far loving the Back Line Dropshot rod! I was looking for something that would be sensitive enough to feel the light bites and this rod is delivering!

      Great rod

      If you’re dropshotting/finesse fishing you need this rod you won’t regret it super sensitive super lightweight!

      Saltwater Toughness

      This rod is second to none when it comes to sensitivity. I fish the North Carolina coast for redfish and speckled trout and you can feel the slightest nibble.

      Drop shot rod

      Man! I love this Drop Shot Finesse rod! Super sensitive with a great action makes this rod my go to for all my finesse application. Coupled with the lifetime warranty, you just cannot beat the quality and value in this rod!!

      Light and Powerful

      I like to mix things up. I love to power fish, but I do it slower than most. When I finesse fish, I use heavier line and medium heavy rods. I love that dirty water, heavy cover, and thick weeds. I will go to traditional finesse gear when necessary, but otherwise I want a rod with some backbone.

      The Yakrods Black Line finesse rod is not that. On paper, anyway. Medium power, extra fast action, just under seven feet in length. It's all those things that make for a great finesse rod, and it is...

      But this thing is a beast in disguise!

      After many weeks putting it through ringer, catching countless bass of all sizes and some mondo, double-digit blue catfish down on the Potomac River, I can safely say this is without a doubt the best spinning rod I've ever used. You will NOT be disappointed!
