In 1946 Sam and Abe Rodensky founded Woodstock Line in the heart of Putnam, Connecticut’s mill district. They began with a goal of manufacturing the highest quality braided Dacron and Nylon fishing lines available. Along the way, the Rodenskys expanded their offerings to newer technologies.
Bernie and Janet Phaneuf became the new stewards of Woodstock Line in 2000. For 21 years, Woodstock Line continued to fine tune and expand its offerings.
In 2021, Dan and Betsy O’Hayer purchased Woodstock Line, along with Mike Lavallee. Our current team is immersed in the restoration of 800+ braiding machines, most of which are over 90 years old. Our mission-driven crew members have improved quality and increased capacity. The team has also significantly decreased the turnaround time for orders. Woodstock remains a steadfast, trusted partner in creating new and innovative braided line products.
