About Us

Conservation and excellence are the foundation upon which Douglas Outdoors was built. Conservation is at the forefront of anglers’ minds across the country – the responsibility to fight for our local waters to preserve and maintain a healthy fishery for generations to come.

It was on the banks of the Salmon River, a river conservation victory pioneered by the Barclay family – owners of Douglas Outdoors, where the conversation began about starting a premium fishing equipment manufacturing company that focused on quality and performance.

From the streamside conversations to working with industry leaders in design and engineering – Douglas Outdoors was formed. Within a few short years of producing rods, we started to make a lot of noise in the industry – winning several prestigious awards including Best Overall 5-Weight, Best Overall 6-Weight, and Best Mid-Priced 6-Weight in the world-renowned 5-Weight and 6-Weight Shootouts by Yellowstone Angler.

We bring our commitment to quality and excellence into every rod we design – from our high-end rods to entry level. Each is designed to be the best rod in-class – backed by our incredible warranty.

Beyond producing exceptional rods, we are committed to offering our customers and dealers with world-class customer service. We pride ourselves on the quality of service we provide as well as our efficiency in handling warranty items – getting anglers back on the water in a timely manner.

We understand the impact that fishing has in the lives of anglers – that truly memorable experiences are made in nature and on the water. We are grateful to be able to play a role in these memories by helping connect anglers with the fish they are pursuing. Thank you for choosing Douglas Outdoors and we look forward to being a part of your fishing adventures – wherever they may be.
