stock around 75 fly rods and it takes a
couple of trips to see all of the fly tying
material we have.

The new Edge rods from Gary Loomis are meticulously handcrafted

USA.  Gary was inducted into the IGFA Hall of Fame for his
contributions to the fishing rod industry. Few people know as much
about building fishing rods as Gary.
If you are ready for the best rod

Francis Bacon
The fact that the average caster can't bring out the full potential of a
$150.00 fly rod should tell you that fly rods have caught up to
technology and that
the overpriced fly rod is a thing of the past! I
don't need to make nor do I want to make $400.00 profit on a fly rod
We continue to see new people every week, which,  of course,  tells us
that we are still growing.  Believe me, we have done this against
overwhelming odds and you were certainly a big part of it. Fighting the
corruption and the adult bullies was also a large part of it.
We don't look at
the bottom line.
We do this to have programs for young people.  However,
there are some adult bullies in this business that only do it for the bottom
line.  Certainly, the root of all evil.
Come and try the Echo Boost rod.
