Osprey Custom Fishing Rods makes only hand-made, meticulously
crafted fishing/trolling rods for the big game fisherman.
James Carnes built his first custom rod in 1982 and has been
an avid saltwater fisherman since that time. He has built every type
of custom rod, from fly rods to blue water rods and has a special love
for salt water big game fishing.
James only uses the finest components available. He believes that
successful fishing is dependent upon using the best equipment
available and is determined to build the best rods that money can buy
on the market today.
He has owned several boats and caught most species of saltwater game
fish up and down the east coast of the United States.
In 2012, he was featured as a
Pro Staff member of American Tackle Company.
Currently, James owns and keeps a boat in South Carolina and spends as
much time as possible on the ocean, testing and fishing with hand
crafted Osprey Custom rods.
