Artisans of Michigan: Making ice fishing rods

Apr 6, 2018

We like to talk with people who make things we use. This time we make a stop in Jackson.

Chris Maples has been making ice fishing rods for a couple of decades. His company is called Frozen Puppy Custom Ice Rods

He designs the rod handles and hand ties everything. He makes the kind of rods that he likes, but he's open to what his customers want. Listen to his story above.

Support for arts and culture coverage comes in part from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.
