An era when quality and value outstripped trendines and fashion, and everyone felt welcome...


We are revising this page to reflect current offerings. There will be complete descriptions, photos, and product reviews.

Our tackle selection, as always, is based on value without sticker shock. To that end, we have some new offerings:

  • Yellowstone rods and reels (designed in Jackson Wyoming by some veterans in the fly tackle trade; highlights include the best ready-to-fish beginner rod-reel-line kit for $99.95; superb IM8 graphite dry fly rods for $225; Beautifully machined reels with feature I’d expect to see only on $250 reels, for under $100)
  • Gray’s fly rods (Gray’s is a division of Hardy Bro’s.), starting at $89.95, Gray’s waders (I’m fishing a pair and love them; elite, rugged construction at modest prices), wading boots, and of course reels (how about a nice trout reel in a case with four spools for $100?)
  • Flylogic reels (still fishing my old favorite)
  • Vosseler reels are to other reels as BMW is to Honda and Chevrolet – trout reels start at around $250
  • Yellowstone lines, fishing vests – same company as above, same value-oriented philosophy

There is more. If you want something in particular, or have questions about anything we might have, please call or email.

Quite often, I can make you a deal that will rival or beat what’s found on the Internet tackle junkie sites. One big difference: We fish, and we believe in what we sell. We won’t steer you wrong to make a sale.



You can order by phone (406) 363-4197 or via our email contact form.
Please feel free to ask questions before ordering.
