Lew's


Lew Childre's quest for a better bamboo fishing pole took him from the heart of bass fishing country, Alabama, all the way to Japan. There, he found the desired grade of bamboo, but also a circle of manufacturers and businessmen who were interested in fishing and the US market. That partnership lead to the introduction in 1970 of the Lew's Speed Stick pistol-grip graphite performance fishing rods, and the first low-profile "teardrop-shaped" casting reel, the Lew's Speed Spool baitcaster, a design that forever changed bass fishing. Decades years later, Lew's continues to innovate in the spirit of Lew Childre.

Today, the Lew’s brand and its many well-known trademarks are under the ownership of Peak Rock Capital and longtime Childre family friend Lynn Reeves. Reeves has made the promise and commitment to return the Lew’s name to its place of prominence in the industry, keying on the same principles by which Lew Childre originally founded the company … building innovative products that are lighter, faster and stronger.
