No Fault, No Hassle Lifetime Warranty

"Outstanding product with even better customer service. I broke my 3 weight rod tip (great policy of 2 rod tips). San Juan got the new tip shipped out the same day. I can’t say enough good about the incredible customer service I received after the sale. It is very reassuring to know that San Juan backs their outstanding rods with such great customer support. I am now a lifetime customer and very enthusiastic supporter of San Juan Rodworks."

Fly fishing can be a rough sport, especially on your rod. Between rocks, trees, car doors and your buddy's size 12 feet, rods can be easily damaged.

That's why when you purchase a San Juan Rodworks rod, you get a LIFETIME warranty with one of the most competitive fee structures in the industry.


The Gunnison, The Fryingpan and The Conejos Rods
