Our online shop is easy to use and full of fantastic products.

For ready built rods and rod building components, these can be easily purchased via our online shop.  We aim to dispatch all stock items within 5 days.

For all custom rod orders, you can easily order online using the easy custom option selector, or if you would prefer a more personal service feel free to get in touch!

email us on contactus@cotswoldrods.co.uk

or drop message us on our social media pages.

You are also welcome to visit our workshop by appointment.

Build time

Due to being extremely busy builders, most custom orders will take between 6-10 weeks, depending on workload and component availability.  Quiet times of the year can see build times as low as 2 weeks, busy times up to 14 weeks. 

Payment terms

For custom rods, we take a 50% deposit, with the balance payable when ready. You are welcome to pay in full if preferred.

Try before you buy

If you would like to test rods before buying, or visit us to look at components and for advice, you are more than welcome.

You can come to our workshop in the heart of the Cotswold Water Park to view different models, components or even take rods out for a test!




We can accept payment by credit/debit card, bank transfer, or cash.




We deliver all over the world.  We use UPS couriers to guarantee the best possible service for our deliveries.


We will always inform you of any delivery costs before processing your order. Postage is charged at cost price.

 Terms of ordering

We have a very small amount of ‘small print’, as follows:

Once ordered and started, rods are non refundable, due to the custom nature of our work.

Any defects or issues will be dealt with by refinishing or replacement, at our discretion. Custom rods cannot be swapped for another model.

Please ensure you are clear on what you are ordering and that it is suitable for you – speak with our team if you need advice.

Orders running over the initial quoted time will not be discounted. Any orders running over time will usually be an issue out of our control.  We will always try to keep you informed if this is the case.

We will call you when your rods are ready for collection or delivery.


All of our rods come with a 1 year “normal use” warranty , we are sure that they will not break, any parts be defective or that our Rods will let you down in any way.

BUT Shutting your rod in the car door, stepping on it or any other non-production fault is not covered in our warranty, sorry! If these do happen, we will be able to provide you with replacement parts at cost price plus Labour.

For your guarantee to be valid, all we ask is that you return your warranty cards to us to validate your purchase.
