Mystic Fly Rods

A new company owned and operated by Dennis Klein in Michigan. Dennis is one of the new breed of Rod Makers who is making a big impact in the Marketplace. A USA made rod supporting USA rodmakers and local businesses. His rods are quickly gaining a place in the market and will replace some of the tired old products of the past which revel in their own glory but ignore the changes in technology and the changing demands of the marketplace. See further comments here.

St Croix rods

We find that the St Croix selection of fly rods offers excellent value to fly fishermen. The effort which the company has devoted to developing a credible offering to the serious fly fisherman should be experienced as part of the process of selecting one's equipment.

We offer several St. Croixs in a various packages which give the new entrant or the person seeking value an excellent opportunity. In our view St. Croix have put a lot of effort into developing their range of trout rods and the results are evident. We certainly recommend that you try out the St. Croix when shopping for another rod.One special mention is made of the 8 weight Ultra.

At its price point its a solid piece of equipment for the salt water enthusiast. I certainly suggest that when shopping for an 8 weight that you cast one alongside other 8 weights as make up your own mind. At about half the price of other 8 weights it is certainly not half the rod!

 

March Brown

 

A beautiful little series of rods built for the hiker or back country fisherman who loves to get to those hard to reach streams and lakes away from it all.

This travel rod fits neatly into all the right little places to enable the traveller to reach a destination with a minimum of fuss in terms of storage.

This is indeed an excellent little rod which performs amazingly well for its size and number of sections. One would expect it to be a "noodle" like so many of this style of rod. But no, not at all. We have had some excellent reports and have used it ourselves extensively on ponds as well as small creeks. Here is a letter we received in the second week of July 2008 which speaks for itself.

"On a recent roving fly-fishing trip through the Rockies, I found myself in the Fryingpan Anglers shop in Basalt Colo.. The proprietor recommended your 6-7ft Hidden Water Rod (HW 704-7) as the best back pac rod available. I bought it with no notion as to what would happen next.
 
Three days later I lost the tip on my 9ft Sage (through no fault of my own) as I was gearing up to fish the San Juan below Navajo Dam. Past experience had dictated 9 1/2 ft leaders, long tippet, careful presentations and tiny flies.  I thought this would be a tall order for a new 7 ft back pack rod.
 
I can spare you the details, suffice it to say I caught 7 trout (three 18"-21")in three hours, lost one, and missed very few strikes. Power without lost sensitivity, responsive and lightening fast with mid to tip flex--wow.
 
Congratulations! You can be very proud of you product. I have not fixed my Sage as yet, someday I'm sure I will.
 
Impressed customer,
 
Johnny Burkhalter"

It is not possible to add to this letter.

Give us a call at the shop and if you drop by try one out. You will be surprised just how excellently these little 7 piece rods perform.

And they are so reasonably priced for what they are. We are currently selling the 3wt for $175.

Hardy

 

Hardy are the definitive name in fly fishing in the World.

Based out of England, they have been outfitting fly fishermen with equipment and clothing for generations.

They have an excellent range of equipment and coupled with their lower end Grey's range they offer all equipment a diligent fisheman could hope to need.

We have added some further comments here.

 

It is a truly beatifully designed range of both rod and reel. Further details can be obained here.

 

Echo Fly Rods

A product of Rajeff Sports. This is an excellent range of rods which fills a niche for a quality product at an affordable price as well as a very reasonable range of spey rods. We recently road tested the Solo on a trip to the Green and concluded that for the price it is hard to beat this rod in terms of performance. An excellent all round rod for an entrant.

Their spey series are being well received by steelhead guides and fishermen and in an area beset with a lot of expensive items, it is a welcome addition to that range.

You can get details of their range here.

 


If you want more details give us a call on (970) 927 3441.

We offer all of the various rods with gift certificates provided you comply with the terms. Please note we do not discount any of them.
