Joe Onorato, Custom Fishing Rod Builder

We are a custom fishing rod repair and rod building shop located on the Chesapeake Bay in Joppa, Maryland. My name is Joe Onorato and I am the owner and founder.

My fishing knowledge has been gathered from over 50 years of recreational and tournament fishing ranging from blue water to farm ponds. Combined with 36 years in the machining trade, I can confidently say “I can build you a fishing rod as unique in appearance as you are” and fitted to your person as if you had grown an extra limb.

We now accept online Payments!

Custom Fishing Rods Built by J&J Sports Service!


J & J Sports Service was conceived and registered as a business in January 1994. Our primary function has been to design and build custom made, top quality fishing equipment for all categories of fishing enthusiasts, both novice and expert. Only the finest blanks and component materials are used on each rod. No corners are cut and no trade tricks are used. Every custom rod is hand built throughout the entire process. Every rod is custom built to order, not grouped into categories for future mass marketing.

Feel free to browse our site and take advantage of the interactive design network. Talk to our current customers in our testimonial area and see their results.

If you took the time to read this far you have read about the rest of the rod smiths, now decide if you want to try the best.
