Gary Howard has more than 25 years of rod manufacturing experience and a lifetime of fishing and working with anglers. Gary’s skills and expertise are evident throughout this diverse range of rods that are built in Gary’s workshop in Brisbane, Queensland. Each rod range is custom designed and built to suit Australian fishing conditions, using the best blanks sourced from around the world. Gary selects each blank to specifically suit the style of fishing for which the finished rod is intended.
This flexible blank supply arrangement is your guarantee that every Gary Howard rod will have the attribute combination required to deliver the ultimate performance that you demand for your favourite fishing techniques.
Quality is further guaranteed by all rods being made in-house using small production runs of specific rods to maintain control over the build and finish of each product.
Many of Gary’s rod designs are species- and technique-specific, down to the fine details such as grip lengths and guide styles and colours. The Gary Howard range includes something special for most popular styles, from the classic estuary and surf favourites that have been asked for by name for more than 25 years, to the latest high-tech blanks and designs for modern boat and lure fishing techniques.
Gary Howard and Jarvis Walker Brands are proud to be combining forces to make custom-build-quality Australian made rods - plus a full range of rod building materials - more accessible than ever.
