Due to issues with both my and my daughter's health, we have gotten so far behind with the store, we can no longer provide the kind of service we built this business around. This winter has been our biggest quarter yet but unfortunately came at a time when we simply can't keep up. After getting behind, we admittedly lost track of product inventory and that has now made it impossible to get orders out in a timely matter. Honestly, we have some orders dating back from months ago that have still not been sent out. As confident as I am in our products, I know our current service is upsetting more customers that it's keeping happy. I please urge you to not place any ordrs that need to be sent out in the near future. I still have a few regulars that are ordering just to be first on the list when we get caught up but as a first time buyer, I would hold off because I would like your first buying experience to be a positive one. I am guessing by the end of April, we will be back on track and able to provide the same next-day service that we used to take pride in. Thank you for your patience and understanding, Scott
The hottest product we have brought to the market is a new fly storage system. Rather than the standard “fly box” idea to store and carry your flies, this new concept is designed using tubes. Anybody that has spent anytime fishing and/or tying the larger intruder or tube style flies has run into the dilemma of “how do you house these things?” The tubes are the answer!

Steelycoon is the best polar bear substitute I have found for forming the collars of intruders. Far superior to arctic fox, this special coon is actually stiff enough to provide the structural support for the fly to maintain its shape even in stiff flows. At the same time, our coon is not so stiff that it makes spinning it in a dubbing loop difficult. And, surprisingly enough, the hair fibers have that same iridescent / translucent quality that makes polar bear so sexy in the water. Equally as important, the hair is not hollow like deer or other collar options so your fly can sink quickly without the restraints of a life vest. We offer it in a variety of colors to match up with any pattern.
With all the new equipment swamping the market, purchasing steelhead equipment or a spey outfit can prove to be a daunting task. We provide an alternative to the standard on-line catalog with endless lists of rods and reels from a dozen different manufactures. Purposely, not a site for huge selections but a great place to help weed thru the b.s. and purchase something that has been proven to work! It's also the site to track down the "cool guy/gal" stuff that seems to only make its way thru the inner circles. Please get back to me if any questions or problems arise with your purchase. Your satisfaction is my goal. No problem is too big to solve. Please give me the chance to make you happy!
