Due to the current "Virus" condition our fly line manufacturing plant has been shut down since March 15th. We are currently out of stock on DT4, DT5 and WF7 with DT3s running low. We have an adequate inventory on DTs and WFs not listed above.Production was scheduled to begin again on May 18th but I haven't heard any news yet. I just wanted everyone to know the reason we out of stock on some popular lines. We normally have a time of six weeks from ordering to shipment but when production begins again I expect that time to increase to three months.

I would suggest trying one of our dealers listed on the DEALER page for lines out of stock. Please make sure to ask them if they have your line in stock as they won't be able to order any from us.

Thanks for your patience. This is just a temporary blip for us and we have all lines on order to be filled as soon as possible.

We're just trying to get out in front of questions people may have if we have any more "out of stock" fly lines. With all the talk of businesses folding just letting you all know we are alive and well.

Tom & Alexis

Thanks, Tom. I'm planning on ordering a DT4 but will just wait. Sorry for the hit to your business.

Hey Tomah, thanks for the support. We're doing OK - minor setback on the road of life.

We'll make an announcement when inventory builds back up.

Tom

Yo Tom - thanks for the update. I've put 143 hours on my DT4F 406 line in the last few months. I've been running it on a variety of glass, bamboo and even graphite sticks. Next week it will get wet on the Beaverkill with some longer sticks.

Shane at Graywolf recommended your DT line for his Trout Smith’s 3wt carbon rod. It’s a great pairing. Had I cast Trout Smith’s carbon earlier I’d own less glass! (OK probably not).

Dusty at Livingston recommended your DT line for his 5wt Western Glass. So as I wait for that rod I’ll watch for your line in the mail.

I’ll try a WF line soon

Thanks for the kind words. At this point we're out of stock in DT3s, DT4s, WF4s, and WF7s. DT5s showed up as one of the last shipments from SA. We're hoping to get the rest within 2 months.

Wanted to say thank you to all the Forum members who have ordered from us and offered words of encouragement to us during these trying times. It is greatly appreciated.

Tom

We're finally back to having a full inventory at this point. Going forward we expect to continue to be able to keep stock levels to full capacity.

Thanks everyone for your encouragement and support.

Tom

Good news, Tom. Was able to hop on when you received some DT4s a while back and plan to order a DT5 this winter. Much appreciate your taking care of us 'glassers!

Good luck Tom and thanks for the great lines. A nice fellow on this forum steered me to them, and I now regularly use the DT3 & DT4. Luckily, the DT6 I just ordered was in stock! Keep that good stuff coming.

Hi Tom. I had never heard of 406 lines until I got onto this forum. The reports are very good and I would be keen to try them. It would be wonderful if you could find a distributor for New Zealand. I like your proactive approach in keeping us all up to date about your business in these uncertain times. It is obvious that your business will have a successful future. Cheers

The nearest dealer is in Australia, Mick Warren at Vale Creek Rod Works. If he has the line you want he can get it to you a lot quicker than I can.

We have a different approach to dealers than most. I prefer they come to us rather than trying to rustle up dealers on our own. That way we'll send them a sample to try and see what they think of them. We don't have a lot of dealers but they're all pretty enthusiastic about our lines.

I'd rather let people know what's going on with us.

Tom

Good to hear Tom. I've only been out twice with my new rod and 406 line setup, but it's performed great and I'm excited to break it in more over the next month. Cheers

Tom I have a couple on the way. I’m really looking forward to trying them along with your leaders. Will do a write up after a couple sessions on the water.
