It was a passion for product design combined with a love for sport that formed the company. The Waterworks-Lamson is unique among fly fishing companies. They are not a machine shop selling reels, they are not a marketing company importing products from overseas. Their focus is exclusively on fly fishing products, The expertise and experience is in product design, and they are committed to the highest standards of domestic manufacturing.
Their products uniquely reflect the drive for superior design. For them this means they must embody true innovation and meaningful improvement. You won’t see The Waterworks marketing “just another fly reel” or a “me-too” accessory. If they can’t do it better, they won’t do it at all.
Making great products also requires a commitment to flawless manufacturing quality. From the Grade 5 titanium, the heat-treated 6020 aluminum alloy and the 544 bearing bronze they use in their reels, to the carbon thermo- composite they mold into the Ketchum Release, each material selection is made without a hint of compromise. The state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques and processes they employ result in the highest possible standards of precision, finish and function. And, of course, they extend their commitment to quality by offering personal assistance to their dealers and their customers throughout the lifetime of the product.
