Meet American Tackle Pro Staff Member
Dean has fished with rod and line since the age of 7. He enjoys any kind of fishing; fly, lure, boat, beach, lake or river. If there's water there, he will fish in it. He has travelled extensively through B.C, Mauritius, Madeira, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Florida, the Canary Islands, Ireland and of course, all over the UK pursuing his passion.
Dean began rod building after losing his brother, a keen angler also, in 2007. He wanted something as a continuous memory. Hence the name "Legacy." Like his brother, Dean always prefers to be different and original. After alI, that's the whole point of a custom rod. Dean loves using materials that are unique, such as Mother of Pearl. He recently completed the World's first gilded fishing rod, using 24ct gold leaf - built for Stuart Collins of Stuart Fishing Tackle, Miami. The bulk of the rods Dean builds are for boat fishing, lure and beachcasters (surf rods to Americans).
American Tackle is very proud that Dean Farley has joined the team. We are excited about seeing the Legacy continue to build. Contact Dean Farley and view his website at: http://www.legacycustomrods.com/
