Chet Kiekhafer

Chet started to build custom fishing rods when he retired, working to design and build a better fishing tool. His passion developed into his new business, Crow River Custom Rods, where he creates one-of-a-kind fishing rods for his clients, using some of the best rod blanks and components available.  He has received several “Best in Show” awards hosted by the Custom Rod Builders Guild, Inc. He is also a Certified Professional Rod Builder by the CRBG, one of only a few in Minnesota. Chet shares his knowledge teaching rod building classes at the High School level, through local Community Education Programs, while vacationing in Mesa, Arizona and now at the Marine Mills Folk School.
