  Fuji’s Profiles in Rod Building

  Featured Builder: Lance Dupré

  December 29, 2019

Born and raised in Louisiana, Lance Dupré is a true Cajun.

Fiery, yet friendly and engaging, Dupré is considered a classic among those who know him in the rod building community, and well-liked by his many customers and friends.

Dupré opened his Swampland Tackle Shop in 1989. After a year of endless repairs on manufactured rods, he decided to start building his own. That venture soon blossomed into a full-time gig and, in his words, “tackle sales got pushed to the side.”

Concentrated on rod building exclusively, Swampland’s clientele quickly grew. His designs became the preference of regional tournament bass and inshore saltwater pros — anglers who demand lightweight builds for high-performance fishing. Realizing the trend, Dupré backed away from decorative wraps and focused more on producing the lightest, most sensitive rods possible.

That said, Dupré does enjoy making his own custom handles and grips. Each is uniquely different, fashioned from wood, acrylic or a combination of the two. And as the attached images will show, they are quite functional and eye catching.

While decorative wraps may not be his focus, Dupré will try to accommodate any requests for them. And for those who prefer to wrap their own rods, his shop offers a broad selection of rod building components — Louisiana's largest, in fact. And he’s a strong believer in the Fuji brand, utilizing some aspect of the product line on nearly every build.

You can find Lance Dupré and Swampland Tackle on Facebook or through his website: swamplandrods.com Or call him direct at 985-852-1703
