Money Back Guarantee

We're so confident in our rods that we offer a risk-free purchase - only one rod returned in 8 years! If you're not satisfied, send it back for a refund minus shipping.

The 4 weight El Jefe combination is just the ticket for backpacking here in the Rockies. The rod, reel, line and "stimulus package" make for a great value. The company supports Trout Unlimited too. Thank you Jeff!

“As far as packable fly rod combos go, this one really is The Boss.

Fly Fisherman Magazine

I’ve been looking for a packable 7 wt for some time. I have one, but it doesn’t pack down small enough. This rod is PERFECT. GREAT service. Jeff is fabulous. High praise all around!


Great, affordable gear. Why pay many more hundreds or thousands of dollars on gear? Not to mention, Jeff is very quick to reply to messages and help. Doesn’t get much better than that. Check them out, you won’t be disappointed.

We deliver the COMPLETE COMBO at the same price point other companies deliver a comparable fly rod.

Quality products and excellent customer service.

The Econ 101 was my first high quality rig in a 4wt - it is great. It arrived very quickly with all the accessories listed. What a beautiful outfit! You can see and feel the quality. It is a step up and now my best rig. I'm happy with this investment and Jeff was great answering questions.

I'd give six stars if I could!

I recieved everything very quickly and in great condition. I could not believe how much was included. In addition to purchased rod and reel, the bonus gift is stellar and a generous offer. I was pleased to see the reel already full of line, as well as the high-quality case.

Looking forward to my first day on the river.

Received my order in a few day. The rod looks and feels great. Quality is very nice for the cost. The free gift is a nice addition to the fishing vest. I am going to the Delaware river this week to try it out. The reel also looks and feels great and arrived with backing and line already on.
