Although John Strenk of The Reel Tech is highly recommended for his expertise at repairing ALL kinds of reels…many of you may not know that he also does more than just fixing and rebuilding reels. He custom builds some of the most beautiful, river-spec’d casting and spinning rods I’ve ever seen.

I must also mention his fantastic high quality steelhead and salmon jig offerings that are truly different than any of the stuff we fish up here…which are also available through his website. Those will be featured in a Part 2 follow up to this post You can find John’s company on my sponsor page or in my Links list on the lower right portion of the home page.

Here’s a peak at some of his incredible custom-rod work….

    John is a great guy to do business with! His reel work is second to none. I have not fished his rods “YET” but if he puts a much work into them as he does his reels, his rods must be #1.

  2. Hellcat says:

    Randy thank you so much for commenting on your own endorsement of Mr. Strenk. You’re a very respected and well connected angler in our community and that really goes a long way my friend. I hope to fish with you and Strenk someday.

    John is one of my closest friends/fishing buddies. We spend a lot of time together in the drift boat fishing the southern Oregon rivers. I am a backbouncing finatic and last fall John built me THE sweetest backbouncer i have ever had in my hands !! It’s built on a Rogue SM 827C blank and it is a work of art. His attention to detail is unsurpassed. His passion for salmon and steelhead fishing shows in the work he does. If you need your reels repaired or just a good cleaning and servicing John is your man. He takes GREAT pride in his work and you won’t believe the quick turn around time !! He also makes the most beautiful, durable steelhead killin jigs on the planet. Just go to his web site and see all the pics of the chromers with their mouths stuffed with marabou and you’ll know what i mean !!!!
