Real Rods — For Reel Women!

As the fishing industry begins to take notice of the missing 26 percent of their market, there is one company has not missed the boat — OceanGirl Custom Fishing Products — specializing in a complete line of hand-crafted pink fishing rods made just for women.

From the beginner to the extreme female angler, OceanGirl Series Rods are tournament-quality rods designed for women, by women. The OceanGirl saltwater line offers only the best in inshore and sportfishing rods.

All OceanGirl rods are made with a top-of-the line e-glass blank. Boat and trolling rods are available from 20 to 130-pound line range. Of course, their lifetime warranty is offered on all of their OceanGirl Series Fishing Rods.

The SurfGirl rods are designed with the serious surf fisher-woman in mind. They are available up to 11 feet and 40-pound line weight. All of the SurfGirl rods are made from a graphite blank and feature the OceanGirl signature light-weight, ergonomic design.

FreshGirl is the line of freshwater fishing rods; they are quality from butt to tip! Even the lightest line weight is strong and sturdy. All of the FreshGirl rods are made with a graphite blank and feature an ultra lightweight cork handle, designed with the FreshGirl angler in mind.

Darla Bardelli, Arizona 's representative on the Women's Bassmaster Tour, is the #1 OceanGirl pro staffer and biggest fan of the FreshGirl series rods. “Working with Corky and Kelly in the development and promotion of the FreshGirl rods is very exciting…” says Bardelli. “On the tour, I am known for my ‘ pink' custom rods … and everywhere I go, I meet women across the country who are excited to finally have a quality rod — made for women.

“Most of us have learned to fish with equipment made for men, what a treat to finally have a rod of our own.”

OceanGirl Custom Fishing Products can be found online at www.OceanGirlFishing.com and at select retailers across the country. At the 2007 ICAST show in Las Vegas , OceanGirl Custom Rods will be debuting several new products in addition to their line of OceanGirl Apparel.
