Getting Your Money’s Worth

Every stand alone fly rod we sell in the shop comes with a warranty of at least 25 years. It seems like a great deal, but how many folks actually take advantage of rod companies’ fantastic customer service? To give you an idea, we sent 22 broken rods out for repair this July. But we see way more people in the shop everyday. Most must feel like they aren’t getting the full value out of their toy that costs up to a grand.

Luckily, the team at Deneki Outdoors came up with a list of 10 great ways to splinter that graphite, or fiberglass, stick. Check out that post here.

We’d like to add one to the list: Keep your rod tip pointed out in front of you and low to the ground when walking from spot to spot. Maybe even let it catch the ground and bend out in front of you. This works especially well while walking on an incline.

In all seriousness, if you need help figuring out how to get your rod repaired, stop in our Bozeman Fly Shop and we can provide you with a form or ship it for you.

Or come by, check out and cast one of the 179 rods we have on display. Who knows, it just might be your future broken rod.
