Over forty years ago a certain Mr Malcolm Grey decided to leave his job with House of Hardy in Alnwick and set up his own separate rod building operation nearby. Greys of Alnwick was born, and quickly set about creating a reputation for building top quality fishing rods that were unique in their quality, style and value. Today at the dawn of a new century, we find events turning a full circle, with our company recently having been taken over by House of Hardy. Strange how things work out at times!
This new marriage of companies allows Greys to expand and develop, with production facilities that rank among some of the finest in the world. A dedicated team of people, many of whom have devoted a large part of their working lives to producing top quality fishing equipment, ensure that the quality of product leaving the factory stands up to the best in the world.
Greys design philosophy is to produce what we like to call real fishing rods. Rods that excel in performing the job for which they are designed. Cosmetically appealing, and practically robust. Rods that make the process of catching fish a sheer pleasure. After all, time spent fishing is quality time. Make each outing memorable by using a Greys rod. Rods with a unique heritage, carefully hand-crafted to provide the ultimate fishing experience.
Here at Greys, we have spent a generation handcrafting a range of rods to provide the ultimate fishing experience. Traditional skills are combined with the latest materials and technology to produce rods that are unique in their quality, style and value.

Game Rods 2000:
A new season, a new century and a stunning new game fishing collection from Greys. Four distinct rod series, each with its own unique action and features are accompanied by the new Pilgrim fly reel. From the crisp, fast action of the Platinum Series, to the more relaxed feel of the Oracle, there is a rod to suit all tastes and budgets.
Over the past year we have worked hard to completely re-design and update our rod range. Priced from £99 to £299, they represent great value and will provide many years of pleasure for a generation of fly-fishers, both old and new.
These are a couple of product's that Greys can offer, see above Photo.
Pilgrim Salmon Fly:
There can be few activities so majestic to watch as a proficient salmon angler transporting a fly to the middle of a pool with a well executed Spey cast.
Pilgrim Salmon fly rods have a medium-fast progressive action that will perform Spey or overhead casts with ease. The power in the middle and butt sections of the rod turns over a long length of line making it ideal for sunk line work with large flies.
Pilgrim two handed rods provide effortless casting and superb control of the fly throughout the pool.
Finished in a stunning gloss black, the Pilgrim Salmon rod has matching gunmetal rings and fittings, with a durable graphite reel seat and a hand-turned Portuguese cork handle.
