The 3-Tand freshwater models have just arrived. From 2-7 weight, they are very light, look almost identical to the larger models, and have a scaled down version of their same well respected drag. From $180.00-$210.00 for the four models. The specs and prices are currently up on the 3-Tand page of this site.
Great News! Vladimir Rachenko is making fly reels again. I was a dealer for VR Design back around 2007, but he eventually moved onto other interests. He's back with his incredible titanium trout reel designs at realistic prices. That page is active on this site. Check it out! I have placed a significant order with him with delivery due before the end of the year.
More great news. The long awaited Beulah Serum Surf flylines are now in stock. If you fish the beach or the surf, especially with a Beulah Surf rod, you owe to yourself to try one of these. Available in 450gr, 500gr, and 550gr to match the Surf rods' needs. Call for more information. I'll get them up with the Beulah rods on this site soon.
I received a relatively small shipment from Mako on 6/7. I will be contacting everyone who has a reel or spool (mostly spools) in that shipment. Meanwhile, Judy Charlton informed me recently (3/21/13) that she is no longer going to accept orders from dealers, and that goes back to mid-September when she first cut off, what was then going to be temporarily, taking orders. There are a number of you who have placed orders with me since mid-September that will be affected by this. Since the Mako site has started accepting orders again, you'll need to place your orders there if you still desire a Mako. I do have a small number of consignment Makos that will cost you a bit more than a reel directly from Mako, but you'll get it right away. While disappointing to me, it is not totally unexpected. I'm sure they've determined that they can sell everything they can produce direct on their on-line site. If that's the case why factor in dealers? I still have additional shipments coming of reels and spools that were ordered before mid-September, so I'll let those customers know once their reels arrive.
NEWSFLASH: I've recently become a dealer for Cheeky Reels, 3-Tand Reels, and Kingpin Reels. All the Cheeky and Kingpin models and several of the 3-Tand models are already in stock and the others should be as well within about the next month. I now have all three pages up on the site.
I'd also like to note that I've decided to become a full-fledged Beulah flyrod dealer. That means I'm going to keep most of their models in stock for immediate delivery. I will also carry most of their lines that match up to those rods. Go to Misc/Used and click on the menu item that says FLY RODS. Most of the information you'll want to know will be there, and I'll continually update it as more becomes available. These are superb rods at a very fair price.
