Operator Owned Business Feature - Rally Point Fly Rods

November 16, 2015 0 Comments

RALLY POINT FLY RODS HAS BEEN IN BUSINESS FOR A YEAR AND A HALF BASED OUT OF BOZEMAN, MONTANA.

 

WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO CREATE YOUR OWN BUSINESS? 

The idea to create my own business came from the desire to work for myself and to pursue something that I am passionate about which is fly fishing.  Fly fishing is sometimes seen as a rich man's sport but is accessible to all and is a great way to get into nature, relax and focus yourself on the pursuit of wary and challenging fish no matter where one lives.  In this sport I am always learning and seeing different ways to challenge myself.

Where did the name come from? 

As the name implies I started by building custom fly fishing rods. The "Operator" fly rod displays the top three ribbons that a veteran has earned during his/her service and also features an intricate wrap similar to that of a paddle that a Recon or Raider is presented with while changing units or retiring. I have built these rods for both active duty and discharged/retired guys and have even built a few as gifts.  This year I moved into the fishing guiding market in southwest Montana taking people on day drips down the famed Madison River and catching fish.  

What is your goal?

Next year I will be sponsoring a wounded warrior fishing trip in which four active duty special operations warriors will come to Bozeman and do three days of fishing and sightseeing. I plan on expanding my production to be able to produce more "Operator" rods next year as well to be able to keep up with demand.

I was physically injured during service to my country, I was also emotionally shattered; transitioning to civilian life a constant challenge. I have had some success with equine therapy, the most successful treatment I had been through before the Serenity Trauma Healing Center program. The unique resources offered by Karl Monger and Gallantfew are like none other that I have ever had the privilege or access to in the past.

Since all of the other participants share similar experiences, you develop a tight bond by swapping stories and having some laughs after a day of climbing. You get the feeling that even though your time in the military may have past, the brotherhood in which you share still exists. They are here for me and I am here for them, no matter what.
