Pricing

We believe we have the best prices in the world today on the products we sell.

We always try to meet or beat the price of our competitors, anywhere in the world!   We believe that the only prices that we cannot compete with are those of fly shops that are going out of business.   Unbelievably, we currently price our custom rods beginning at only 90% of MSRP!

If you cannot find your rod, reel, line or package advertised here, please give us a call and we can normally create a package for you that results in substantial savings.


In-Shop Specials!

WE all know that MSRP used to mean "Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price".  However, it does not mean that to some manufacturers any longer.  What MSRP means to these manufacturers means is that if we advertise a price on an item that is less than the price the manufacturer tells us to advertise, we can lose our dealership on that brand.  However, this MSRP figure may have little bearing on the price for which we may be able to sell the product "inside our shop."  Therefore, please ask us about any "in-shop specials" that we may be running on the items for which you have an interest.  On many items, we may or may not be able to help you. 


LOOP  - In our opinion, this is one of the Best lines of Fly Rods rods in the world today

Additionally, Loop reels are simply superb. From the Multi, to the Evotec, to the top-of-the-line OPTI series, they perform flawlessly.  Even the lowest priced reel in the LOOP line, the Xact, is a very good reel.  WE are entering our tenth year as a LOOP dealer and are now one of the top authorized dealers in the USA.   We normally have stock when others may be sold out.

The LOOP rods, reels and lines are extremely good at each price point.  Whether you want a delicate, 2 or 3 weight rod to fish for 8" Brookies or a strong, beautifully designed rod to battle Tarpon, LOOP makes your rod.  We are a full-line factory LOOP DEALER.  We regularly use these rods when fishing! 

 

In 2013, George Anderson rated the LOOP OPTI STREAM 5 weight rod as being better than any SAGE, Winston, Hardy, or St. CROIX 5-weight rod that he tested.  That is saying something as the rod is $200-$275 less than most of its competition.   While we agree that the OPTI STEAM is a fine rod, we rate the CROSS S1 as being better, especially in landing big fish!  The OPTI STREAM is being redesigned for 2018.  LOOP is always trying to improve their rods!

LOOP has a fly fishing outfit at every price point.

LOOP rods, reels, and lines are designed as balanced outfits.  Most manufacturers that sell rod, reel, and line outfits bought out other established companies to form rod, reel and line companies, not LOOP.  Many rod companies are not even run by knowledgeable fly fishers.   Not LOOP!  LOOP designed everything to work together.  We do not believe that any product line truly compares to LOOP in "total product line quality." 


This is what one of our clients told us after buying his LOOP CROSS S1 rod, OPTI Dry Fly reel and Evotec line:

"Bob,

For years I have watched people try unsuccessfully to improve their golf game by buying new equipment. Ultimately, their swing flaws overpower the new technology and they are stuck with the same old game even after the equipment upgrade.

Well, I fished with the new Cross S1 5wt and the Opti Dry Fly reel you sold me for the first time last evening on the Hiwassee River here in S.E. Tennessee. As a direct result of this outing, I have come to the conclusion that you can buy the ability to effectively cast a fly for distance and accuracy. The difference between this rig and what I had been fishing is almost indescribable. The rod loads with ease and delivers effortless power. I am blown away by its performance and feel. As for the reel, the smooth action is a joy and it really picks up the line with that large arbor. It is a perfect compliment to the rod. All this performance and just plain great looking too! It is an understatement to say that I am 100% satisfied.

I bought this setup for trout fishing but my first fish turned out to be a surprise 2 lb Smallmouth that blew up on a Griffith’s Gnat drifting through a run that always produces nice Rainbows. Big fun and a nice little test to help me get acquainted with my new favorite rig.

Thanks again for all of your help and for your honest endorsement of the Loop products I ended up buying. I will be reaching out to you again soon for a heavier version of the same thing.

Best Regards,

Eddie Triplett

When you analyze the quality in the very top of the line LOOP products, you will understand why they should be more expensive than some other premium brands.  However, in the packages we offer, they are not. The LOOP offerings are no more costly than any other premium rod and in many cases, they cost less.  While SAGE and Winston have increased their prices, LOOP has not! 

LOOP rods come to life with LOOP lines.  We recommend strongly that you buy LOOP lines to use with LOOP rods.  They work together by design.  The reels create the smooth and creamy icing on the cake.

Most reel and rod models are in-stock.  If we don't have the item you desire, we can normally get it in just a couple of days.  We have a limited supply of lines due to world wide demand and the resulting shortage of stock in the USA. 

Please take a look at our very special LOOP packages offered below.  If you would like an "in-store" quote on a Loop reel combined with either a Sage, Epic, or Winston custom rod, or a Loop or Sage factory rod, please give us a call. 

Please call to create your own package! You will always receive superb rods made with first run factory products (no seconds) and currently we will save you on taxes (except for sales within Washington State)



Shipping is normally $27 within the USA and $53 to foreign countries unless otherwise quoted.

Silver for Fly Tackle

Yes, we accept real money (gold and silver) for our rods.  We will allow you $2.00/oz "over" the current spot price for Silver American Eagles and $20/oz. over the current gold spot price on Gold American Eagles on anything that we sell!  We allow spot on all other acceptable silver and gold bullion coins issued by a recognized mint that are .999 pure.

We will also accept 1964 and earlier US Dollars and half Dollars at their current melt price. 

We know this is an unusual offer but, you can have a little fun telling your friends you bought the rod for  a few dollars just to see the look on their face.  It also illustrates what taking the USA off of the Gold Standard and what the Federal Reserve's printing of funny money has done to the value of the Dollar over the years. 

Final Silver exchange rates are calculated at the moment that you finalize your purchase. 
You then have a maximum of 7 days to deliver the silver to us. We will then ship your item.
