The proposed Marketplace Fairness Act is anything but fair. Instead of leveling the playing
field, it would tilt it decidedly against online retailers, particularly
small ones. Brick-and-mortar stores would still have to collect sales
taxes only where they are physically present. Online retailers would
have to collect sales taxes from the nearly 10,000 sales tax
jurisdictions around the country where their customers live. That is not
an equal burden.
It could put many on-line retailers (like us) out of business!

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!

advertise on the web.

rods, reels and/or lines and reels for an incredible package price. However, as an authorized SAGE Dealer, we can no longer advertise most of our SAGE packages except inside our shop. You must call us to find out about most of our "In-Shop Specials."
Some of our LOOP and Winston Packages are advertised on the "Package Pricing "page. This does not mean that other SAGE packages are not available. Additionally, we are no longer allowed to
advertise current SAGE products on eBay or on any other 3rd party site such as Amazon, Craigslist, etc. Please call or email us to discuss your needs. We believe that it will be worth your time.

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.
