    Hello! I have been a dedicated fan of the Stealth rod (have two broke the first a couple years back). I am looking for a 6-weight. Any chance of finding one?

      Steve, there is a possibility that I can find one of these for you. Would you like me to confirm this? Cathy

    Hello Cathy..are you still manufacturing the Stealth fly rods. And if so, is the 590 p taper available?

      Hello George, I can still find a 5wt Stealth Rod P taper if you are interested. Cathy

    I placed an order for the newest John Gierach Book (signed) on about March 23 but have not received it yet. Did you receive this order this order, or do I need to reorder?

      Hi Jim, your book is on its way and should be there any day now. We did run short but had autographed copies again in just a few days. Thank you very much for your order. Cathy

    I just received my order. Thanks! It looks as if you are out of ginger in the touch dub and yarn as tam was substituted for both. The colors are definitely different that the ones I had received from you in the past.

    Are all of Gary’s books out of print?

    I went through your catalog and didn’t find any.
