Stanley E. Bogdan (December 16, 1918 – March 27, 2011) was the founder of S.E. Bogdan Custom Built, a company dedicated to the handmade construction of fly reels. Bogdan was born in Nashua, NH and lived their throughout his entire life.[ He became interested in fly fishing at an early age when he began receiving outdated copies of a hunting and fishing magazine from a local sports retailer. At age 13, Bogdan was tying his own flies and would then become immersed in the sport. Upon graduating high school, Bogdan began work at Rollins Engine Company, a local engines manufacturer in Nashua. Later on, while working as a machinist, he began constructing some of the first prototypes for his reels. Stanley Bogdan died on March 27, 2011. His wife Phyllis died in 1995.

S.E. Custom Built fly reels are primarily known for their ability to greatly reduce drag. This is mostly attributed to Bogdan's unique concept of the double-break shoe, known as the hallmark of any Bogdan reel. The company is mostly focused on the production of salmon reels, however there have been a few trout reel models made.
