Founded in 2014 by Robert Kowalczyk, ManOwar represents a fusion of two life-long passions. Growing up fishing the Indian River Lagoon and the offshore reefs of the Florida Atlantic Coast, and the Bahamas Robert’s love and respect for angling was instilled at an early age.  As an adult, Robert’s focus turned to tennis, playing competitively for UC Berkeley, competing on the ATP Mens Pro Tour, and ultimately becoming a professional tennis instructor. It was his passion for tennis that ultimately exposed Robert to the carbon-based materials used to create high performance tennis racquets. Always in search of the perfect fishing rod, Robert knew that the materials used to manufacture tennis racquets could be incorporated into a rod blank.  Blending the carbon fibers commonly used in tennis racquets with a proprietary fiber, Robert was able to create a rod that would deliver exceptional responsiveness and remarkable durability.  By employing precise strength and durability standards, Robert was effectively able to create a rod that would provide anglers with the technology needed to catch the "BIG ONE."


In 2016 Evolving to what is now ManOwar Fishing Co., we have created a store that not only showcases the rods but also a friendly storefront  for all your inshore and offshore fishing needs.  The store was only 350sf and we quickly out grew the store after the first year.

In 2017 we took all our past experiences and advanced ManOwar Fishing Company to the next level.  We moved into our new 10,000sf and expanded our services to include fishing and marine services.  Our primary focuses are on Boat Detailing, Marine Installation, Boat Repair, Marine Fabrication. We look forward to seeing you and welcome all feedback regarding the performance of our services and would love to hear about your next “catch” using our products and services.
