The LOOP CROSS S1 rods and LOOP reels and lines were the hit of the show!
Whether the Cross S1 was tested at the casting pond in a 3, 4, 5, 6 , or 7-weight, comments such as, "I will never use my ... rod again and it was my favorite.", and "Finally, somebody designed a rod right!
" and "Powerful, yet very accurate and I can feel it LOAD!" were heard over and over again. We had to stop selling rods and could only take orders due to running out of stock!
Read more about this incredible rod under our LOOP CROSS S1 announcements in the menu on the left side of this page. This is one of the best fly rods that we have ever cast! By the way, we are now selling an average of 12 LOOP rods for every 1 rod of all other brands put together. This is an incredible ratio as SAGE has been our number one selling rod for the past 6 years and Winston was number one before that. This shows how good some LOOP rods have really become!
We are a We are a SAGE Dealer and sell all SAGE factory rods, reels and other products. We only sell brands that we would use ourselves. If you are looking for a fast action rod, no one has thus far designed a fast rod better than SAGE. The new SAGE METHOD is super! We can make any premium SAGE one-hand rod in a Custom design.

Viewing Equipment in person
We are not an everyday walk-in shop. We cater to serious clients that are looking for the finest fly-fishing equipment at reasonable prices. We only sell to out-of-state clients as Washington State has passed laws regarding in-state sales with which we simply cannot comply. Most of the items in our shop are special order. Ours is not a shop where you can just browse. Call or email for appointment at least 48 hours in advance to see if we have the stock you are interested in viewing. Please do not drop-in.
All orders must be shipped out-of-State. We do not allow local sales or pick-up of any merchandise due to the inane laws of Washington State.
