Designed With Passion

From growing up in a commercial fishing family in Alaska to making a living as a full time fly fishing guide, the pursuit of fish in the outdoors has remained a central part of my life. In many ways, I have a similar story to most other anglers: I held a fly rod for the first time and made a cast that caught a fish, and the magic of that moment left me wanting more.

Since that time, my life has been a journey of discovery- learning about and pursuing passions that inspire me, but most importantly, appreciating the rejuvenation of my soul through being present in God’s creation… with a fly rod in my hand.

The Fly Rod

An Extension Of Your Arm

The “feel” of a fly rod is often overshadowed by other characteristics: price… aesthetics… even function. A fly rod must do what it’s intended to do, but exceptional rods function with feeling. They become an extension of the angler’s will and intention. The Kistler Bakk Series Fly rods are the perfect introduction to the way fishing should feel. They are powerful yet sensitive, both assertive and responsive.

From tip to butt, the Bakk Series rods are a true do-it-all tool. These are true fishing tools- designed with the vision of creating a rod that can be equally at home (or comfortable) dropping a small dry fly to wild browns on an alpine creek as it is lobbing a heavy indicator rig into the wind for large lake-run trout.
Building on the foundation of a multi-modulus feather-light unsanded blank, every detail and component has been carefully chosen to work in concert to achieve the highest level of feel.

The nickel titanium single foot REC recoil guides with custom spacing work together with the custom shaped cork grip to provide the angler with the highest level of touch and casting accuracy. With top end components, a low swing weight and a feather-light feel in hand, these rods are a joy to cast, mend, and fight even the strongest of fish.

You need this rod if you are pursuing the largest fish in a river or lake. Capable of long accurate casts to big cutthroat in the middle of an alpine lake as well as throwing the “kitchen sink” (a big indicator, multiple split shot, couple flies and a streamer) into a stiff winter headwind for nasty lake-run trout. This rod excels in the hand of a progressing angler.

The Extended Interview

Jeremiah Bakk and Trey Kistler talk the Bakk series origins, features, and more.

The Fly Reel

Proven on the strongest Trout

Proven on the Strongest of Trout section: Designed with the trout hunter in mind, the Kistler Bakk Series reel is uniquely designed from the ground up to perfectly balance the Kistler Bakk series fly rods or any other flagship fly rod. It features a low glare, type II anodized finish for durability and stealthy approach on spooky trout.

Fully machined from a block of aluminum, the porting design sheds excess weight while maintaining torsional strength. The reel features a sealed drag system comprised of a proprietary disc combination that ensures a low start up inertia and an ultra smooth drag to hold big fish on the lightest of tippet.

Extremely lightweight, the large arbor design holds a generous amount of backing and the rounded reel feet post keep your leader strong and kink-free. From the brackish saltwater of the Bristol Bay region in Alaska to the sub-freezing environments of winter rivers in the mountains of Colorado, the Bakk Series Reel has been proven on the strongest trout in extreme conditions.

Whether you are fly fishing for the very first time, or traveling to a far off location to hunt the trout of a lifetime, the Kistler Bakk Series reel can be trusted to help you land the fish you’re after.

Our company was born in a Texas garage. After Trey Kistler returned home from serving in the Gulf War, he went to work with his father building fishing rods. When his dad retired, Trey decided to blaze his own trail. He decided to make an exciting life for himself, his wife and four babies. He decided to create some solid American jobs. And he decided to try and catch as many fish as possible. So he set himself to the task of making the best bass fishing rod out there. We, and Trey, wouldn’t have it any other way. If his family name is going to be on it, it’s going to be the best. Kistler products are excellent. Period. They are the most sensitive, the most responsive, the most trustworthy. When you hold one of our rods, you know you’re holding something special.

"Fish are an expression of divine creativity, and the joy of an angler is to try to get as close to them as possible, as often as possible. For me, this pursuit has led me on a path toward the art of fly fishing: experimenting with different techniques and styles of casting a fly, traveling to various places for unique fish, creating fly patterns of my own, and never giving up pursuing the perfect moment- when everything comes together, and art becomes reality.

If I’m not rowing a drift boat down a windy river in WY or looking for the largest trout in CO to try and fool with a bit of feather on a hook, I’ll be thinking about doing it and trying to come up with a new way of enjoying the moment."
