  1. My fly rod was stolen and I’m not a pro by any means. I would love to assist your company any way i can. I live in Utah and not far from Montana……..excellent fly fishing areas. Call or text. I’m 61 and looking to retire soon. Lon Elbert, 801-205-7845 (katiecod@aol.com)

    1. No one owes you a fly rod, but you can find a very suitable replacement for your stolen one . Go to Amazon.com and pull up Maxcatch fly rods; most of them are about $50 and I have some that I use for instruction of fly-casting for the Boy Scouts. I have made up over 100 rods over many years; I cannot even begin to buy a raw blank for $50, let alone a Korean made fly rod with cloth bag and rod case! Reels, if you are careful not to fall into the trap of fancy and heavy drag mechanisms, are also on sale on adjacent pages for about $25. I tell our Scouts that a prudent fly-fisher can walk away with an entire outfit for about $100. The Maxcatch lines are … OK…not the highest end, but quite good as floating lines for general use. If you do not tie your own flies, The Fly Shack.com sells most patterns for about 89 cents + shipping. This wonderful art and craft need not cost you a small fortune. I am also retired with a low-end pension and I do not work for any of the commercial folks that I have named. Yes, I own a few ORVIS rods and Battenkill reels which I have bought over many years. ORVIS has lots of excellent products but it is unnecessary to start there!
