Godfrey Custom Tackle

Godfrey Custom Tackle is owned and run by Ted and Faye Godfrey. Ted handles the technical issues of reel design and production while Faye manages all aspects of business. Feel free to contact us - as we are always happy to discuss tackle making, our local fishing, and of course the details of any reel model.

We find that the best fly fishing locally is the evening rise on Penns Creek, the best reels are vintage classic style reels, and certainly we feel that the best part of being an angler is sharing the river with friends.

Phone:     9:00 AM - 9:00 PM Eastern time

"I was going through some trout fishing photos and realized that many of my favorites included shots of your reels. Reels are a Classic 274, Penns Creek Multiplier, and a Bi-Metal 255."   "I recently obtained a Westminster 232 as part of a trade and am looking forward to getting that out on the water here in SE Minny in the coming weeks."   --  M.
