CF Burkheimer goal is simple: to design and manufacture the finest fly rods in the world.
At CF Burkheimer they have learned via 25 years in the rod making business that no two anglers are identical in casting style and preference. They also thus understand that mass producing rods is no solution to this natural diversity. CF Burkheimer have designed their business to be nimble and flexible, allowing them to build top quality rods on a “one at a time, one of a kind” basis. Inventing new tapers as well as continually tweaking designs and variations on already existing tapers is the norm at CF Burkheimer, not the exception.
Quality is a compulsion with them. Burkheimer offer one line of fly rods, with no compromise, no “value” or “intro” series. Only the best materials are used for their blanks and their ridiculously high standards force them into exacting manufacturing processes that nobody else can match. While other rod companies machine sand their blanks smooth, Burkheimers are rough sanded by machine then hand finished because they realize even a few thousandth of an inch variation in the depth of rod’s finish can change it’s action dramatically. Burkheimer cork handles are hand turned from the finest grade of cork we can buy. What they might reject is what others might use on their best production models.
While Burkheimer offer a wide range of standard models, they are always open to a new challenge from customers. Because they make rods from start to finish, not just put handles and guides on somebody else’s blanks, CF Burkheimer is truly a custom rod shop. If you want a specific rod for a specific task, if they don’t already make it, Burkheimer can and will.
About Kerry Burkheimer: It has been almost a genetic inevitability that Kerry Burkheimer ended up in the rod making business. Catching his first fish at the ripe old age of 2 lit a flame that still burns exceptionally brightly. Always a passionate angler and a tinkerer, Burkheimer spent years learning the rod design and manufacturing business, including years at Loomis Composites as well as nearly a decade under the watchful eye of his mentor, legendary rod maker Russ Peak. Largely now overlooked by today’s generation of anglers, Peak was the rod designer that all others of his era, from Fenwick to Orvis, looked up to and consulted with. Eventually, Burkheimer purchased Peak’s business and inventory, which morphed into the CF Burkheimer Rod Company of today.
