About Us

Rent This Rod was created by Brian Guengerich and David Moore.  Both natives of Asheville, NC, their paths crossed several years ago.  Acquaintances quickly turned into that most sacred of relationships... fishing buddies.  Years of fishing and time spent on the water together led to some interesting conversations (and "your mom" jokes, but that's another story) about the lack of fly rod rental options and thus... 

Rent This Rod was born.
