About Fuji Quality Fishing Rod Components™:
Hopkins & Holloway was founded in 1944 by Mr S. F Holloway, who was a rod manufacturer for a company called “Rudges”.
Later that year he formed a partnership with a Mr E. Hopkins and Hopkins & Holloway was formed.
The Company continued to grow and the founders son Mr J. F Holloway took over control in the early 1960s.
It was at that time that the company moved into its current location in Studley, Warwickshire.
At that time the company 100% manufactured rod guides for manufactures and wholesale distributors.
Rod guides at that time were made from wire that was bent, and coiled into shape.
In 1979 the company launched a range of one piece rod guides under the brand SEYMO, supplying many rod manufactures from all over the world.
In 1995 we were appointed UK distributors of the FUJI brand.
This enabled the company to expand further, and to rationalise some of its product ranges, while still manufacturing Rod Guides, especially for the Game market, having many prestigious customers such as SAGE, HARDY, WINSTON, SCOTT, BRUCE & WALKER etc.
We are the leading provider of Fly Fishing Lessons, Corporate Team Building, and Guiding on the Upper Grand River, the Upper Credit River, and the Conestogo River.
