Ross van Enckevort is a well known custom rod builder based in South Australia since 1983 and established his own business, the RodWorks in 2001.

Ross has built thousands of rods and believes that the key to maintaining a high level of technical skill is to continually source new product and to keep pace with world trends using the latest rod building technology. To this end, Ross has maintained an international profile being a regular participant and contributor to, international forums and journals.

His passion for fishing and the craft of custom rod building has enabled him to create quality rods purpose built for either the professional or recreational angler. His knowledge of blank functionality and specific fishing style needs has been used consultatively with leading Australian Blank Manufacturers for specific blank designs and trends. He is also the Australian distributor for MHX and RODgeeks blanks which are now becoming the world’s “go to” blanks for rodbuilders with competitively priced blanks for every application.

Ross' workshop is 'state of the art' in rod building workshops with machinery specially designed by top machinery and electrical engineers.
