Innovation You'll Be Hooked On

Why Us

The problems with fishing rod holders: Many are not sturdy, poorly manufactured with low-quality materials and they are not easy to use and maneuver.

The solution: Southpaw rod holders.

Our rod holders are made to work hard and help you reel in the biggest fish.

Our rod holders are made of high-grade stainless steel and aluminum that won’t break under pressure.

Our rod holders are easy to use, and allow for changeable positions without the use of a tool.

Fishing requires flexibility and the ability to change at a moment’s notice. You cannot lose that fish!

Who We Are

Southpaw rod holders were designed by Gary Anderson of Green Bay, Wisconsin. As the owner of a custom machine shop, he took his downtime to develop Southpaw rod holders.

“I have been great lake fishing all my life, and I have struggled to find a rod holder that would ensure I was able to reel in the biggest fish.” – Gary, Southpaw Founder & Owner

Through trial and error for over five years, Gary worked on different ideas to develop a more sturdy and reliable rod holder. Anderson doesn’t only use the rod holders but created them with the mind of a life-long fisherman.

Gary and his wife Amy reside in Denmark, WI with their two sons and can be found fishing on Lake Michigan on any spare moment.
