Product Details
C.F. Burkheimer Rods are made to order with the utmost attention to quality and perfection. While we may have a couple of Burkheimer rods in stock at any one time it would be best to plan on a special order of the rod you want. Special order Burkheimer rods may take up to 12 weeks. Its not up to us to determine how long a special order rod may take. We are at the mercy of C.F. Burkheimer when it comes to how long will it take. So plan on waiting. If you have a time line of need for a rod I would strongly suggest you consider something available...Please don't be in a hurry for a Burkheimer rod. Kerry and his master builders live by the motto "One of a kind, one at a time" meaning no mass production. I think that pretty much sums it up!


CF Burkheimer trout rods have been quietly taking over the quality trout waters the world over. Find an angler that quietly goes about his business, casts a beautiful line with accuracy and precision and more than likely you'll find a Burkie in his hand.

Trout fishing is much more than just a 9-foot, five-weight game. You want to throw big streamers? That’s a 695-4. Midges in a back eddy? Look to a 389-4. There are a host of presentation situations out there, from small spring creeks to big western rivers. We’ve got a rod for them all.

Our trout rods are light in the hand, but heavy in performance. If they don’t cast 80 feet with good turnover right after dropping a fly on a quarter at 25, they’re not Burkheimers. We build rods that you’ll love to fish with, because you deserve it and the trout deserve it.

While our trout rods contain plenty of technology, we don’t use buzz-word marketing lingo to describe tapers or models. That’s not the Burkheimer way. Instead, we prefer to focus on building exceptional fly rods—fly rods with that Burkie feel.

Our trout rods are available in two distinct actions: the "Standard" and "Deep Action Load". Each has a distinct action and feel to match your specific fishing style and conditions. The Standard action rods are slightly quicker and more tip loading rods. They will handle big brawling western rivers and the conditions they entail. They are also handle big flies with ease. This action fits the angler that tends to push his cast. The Deep Action Load rods have fast become our number one selling rods. Their deeper loading feel should not be confused with slow action The Deep Action Load (DAL) series of rods were designed for angler’s who prefer a more relaxed stroke. These rods offer full flexing blanks, firm tips and fast recovery. You want a light presentation with a #18 PMD? This rod series will do it. How about deep nymphing with a stonefly or ripping a streamer through a log jam? These rods will do that too. DALs are highly versatile with a forgiving flex that still provides strong performance. Designed to fish, not the parking lot shoot out!
