Please call the shop for details.

One new Scott S4s 9010/4 Pike/Muskie rod, $465.00. Original retail on this rod was $795.00. We've knocked the price down to 40% off! This is a nine foot, four piece ten weight rod. It is the predecessor to the new Meridian rod.

It's a four piece rod making it a good choice for a backpack rod or whenever portability is key. The fast action helps to turn over wind resistant hoppers and get some distance out of your casts. It almost feels like a four weight. Comes in original rod tube with full warranty.

One new Ross Fly Stik Heavy, $100.00. Original retail was $180.00. This is a seven foot eleven inch ten weight rod. It is a four piece model that comes in at under eight feet making it tournament legal for bass. This stout little rod is great for bass, pike, musky and even for saltwater. It's short length is great for fishing from a boat as you can bring your flies that much closer to the boat. This one is also negotiable. In original tube with full warranty.

One used Los Pinos Custom Rods Sage 480-3 SP, $300.00. This is a custom built rod by Los Pinos Custom Rods of Albuquerque for the High Desert Angler in the mid-nineties. The SP was the top of the line blank from Sage in the nineties and still has a following today. It is a fast action three piece eight foot four weight rod.

In original tube and sock.

One used Cabelas 1005-4 CZN rod, $70.00. This is a ten foot four piece five weight rod designed for European nymphing techniques. This long, lightweight rod, and supple tip and stiff butt provides the line control and feel required for this method of nymphing. These rods also excel at standard indicator nymphing especially from a float tube or drift boat. Used only a few times and in near new condition. Cabelas return policy may apply, otherwise, no warranty.

One used TFO Left Kreh Professional Series 9 foot 9 weight rod, $100.00. This is a medium fast action rod that is smooth casting and powerful. Many of these rods are purchased as a backup but often get top billing. It has oversized stripping guides typical of rods designed for saltwater. In original sock. TFO makes you buy the tube separately and like a lot of TFO rods we get, this one only has the sock. No warranty.

Price Further Reduced! One used G Loomis Streamdance GLX, $250.00. This is a ten foot, four piece five weight rod. This is a fast action rod that excels at throwing streamers or nymph rigs on bigger rivers. The extra foot allows for mending and line control like high sticking over faster currents. This rod also appears to still be current in Loomis' line up. There is a very small chip in the cork otherwise this rod is in great condition. In original sock and tube. No warranty.

One never used Orvis Trident TLS, $300.00. This one is a nine foot nine weight two piece rod. It's their tip flex model which is generally a bit harder for a beginning angler to cast, but can handle wind and distance in the hands of an accomplished caster. The rod is in new condition and still has the tag on it. The rod tube is original but a little scuffed up. No warranty.

One used Orvis Green Mountain rod, $100.00. This is an older four piece eight foot six inch six weight.

One used LL Bean rod, $100.00. This one is a  four piece eight foot six weight rod. The is no model designation on the rod or tube, but it could be an older Double L model. Both rod and tube are in good shape, except the usual soiling on the cork. In original aluminum tube and sock. No warranty.

One used Ross CLA 5 reel, $185.00. This reel has been discontinued from Ross last year. This reel has a large enough arbor to accommodate eight weight lines to ten weights or spey lines. It's easy to change from left to right hand. The finish is black in new condition with no scratches or dings. The seller is including an eight weight intermediate line and 250 yards of backing. In original neoprene case and box.

Price Further Reduced!! One new Sage 3850 CF reel, $150.00. This is one of Sage's 3800 Series reels sized for a five weight line. The frame is blaze orange with a carbon fiber spool. This is a discontinued reel by Sage but is new in box with warranty.

One used Sage 3500D reel and spare spool, $350.00. Original retail on the reel was $650.00 and the spool was $290.00. This is a very, very seldom used reel. It was used as a spare reel on three trips for roosterfish in Baja over the last ten years. It was a top of the line reel from Sage that has some incredible stopping power designed for the rigors of saltwater fly fishing. It will hold 200 yards of 30# backing with a ten weight line. Both reel and spool are black in color and have the original neoprene cases and original box for the reel.

Other Stuff:
One almost new Titan Rod Vault Pro rooftop rod carrier, asking $400.00.  This one was used about six times, but will not fit on a new Forerunner. It was only used to transport rods to and from the San Juan River by one of my customers. It had been taken off of the vehicle when not in use. Includes all original hardware. This model will fit three fully rigged ten foot fly rods. You'll save at least $50.00 in shipping from the manufacturer if you can pick it up in Santa Fe. Shipping is not offered on this item due to the over-sized length.
