Fishing Rod Builder
Sophie found her undiscovered talent for making fishing poles after Pat noticed her precision and patience in sewing blankets on a sewing machine. Under his guidance, Sophie found a new passion. She has made and repaired rods for family, friends, and customers. She has had the opportunity to use her rods to fish along the eastern seaboard, Gulf of Mexico and right here close to home in the Hudson River. Sophia is a high schooler who hopes to use her creative talents to help clients design the perfect rod for their fishing needs.
