Watch for a forthcoming announcement about my becoming a dealer for Willow Reels. Coming soon...
I've been an Echo rod dealer for several years, but I've always been pretty quiet about it. By the same token, I've been waiting for the right glass rod to come down the pike so that I might be able to jump on it. Last fall Echo announced a series of lightweight fiberglass flyrods to be available in January. Well, I just got my shipment in. I like them and will get a chance to fish one fairly soon. Many of the new glass rods have been priced alongside some of the top end graphite, with $600.00+ not totally unusual. The big thing I like about the Echo rods is the $200.00 price tag. Four rods, from a 6'3" 2 weight to a 7'10" 5 weight. All are three piece. I have them all in stock. Call or e-mail me today!
I've also decided to focus my flyline business behind Airflo. More and more I've been switching my personal lines in that direction so it only makes sinse to do it with the business as well. On that note, see a closeout of Monic lines, including both some lightly used ones and 30% off on brand new-in the box lines.
I've just received notice that Ross Reels is now the place for repairs of Charlton reels. It's a bit convoluted, but Orvis bought Scientific Anglers last year which included Charlton, and recently Orvis sold Ross to the Mayfly Group which includes Abel. Included with that was the rights to Chalrton. So all Charlton repairs have to be routed to Ross Reels in Montrose, Colorado. Call or e-mail me for more specifics.
The 3-Tand freshwater models have just arrived. From 2-7 weight, they are very light, look almost identical to the larger models, and have a scaled down version of their same well respected drag. From $180.00-$210.00 for the four models. The specs and prices are currently up on the 3-Tand page of this site.
Great News! Vladimir Rachenko is making fly reels again. I was a dealer for VR Design back around 2007, but he eventually moved onto other interests. He's back with his incredible titanium trout reel designs at realistic prices. That page is active on this site. Check it out! The reels have arrived. They look terrific. I'll have more specifics on what came in on the VRDesign page of this site.
More great news. The long awaited Beulah Serum Surf flylines are now in stock. If you fish the beach or the surf, especially with a Beulah Surf rod, you owe to yourself to try one of these. Available in 450gr, 500gr, and 550gr to match the Surf rods' needs. Call for more information. I'll get them up with the Beulah rods on this site soon.
I want to note that I've decided to become a full-fledged Beulah flyrod dealer. That means I'm going to keep most of their models in stock for immediate delivery. I will also carry most of their lines that match up to those rods. Go to Misc/Used and click on the menu item that says FLY RODS. Most of the information you'll want to know will be there, and I'll continually update it as more becomes available. These are superb rods at a very fair price.
