St. Croix Fly Rods

Stroud Tackle was a St. Croix dealer from the 1970's through the mid-2000's.  We have found a number of new in the tube rods, mostly from the late 1990's and early 2000's.  These are very nice made in USA models available at a discounted prices.    The Legend and Legend Ultra models originally retailed from the high $200's to nearly $400 range.  The Avid models were in the mid $200's range.  Legend and Legend Ultra models have a matte dark green blank and come with a Green Cordura covered PVC rod tube.  Avid models have a matte charcoal color blank come with a Black Cordura covered PVC rod tube.  The Avid models have a more medium-fast action compared to the faster Legend and Legend ultra models.  We also have a single Legend Elite 6wt rod from the the mid 2000's. This s a very nice fast action rod that was a step up from the Legend Ultra Series.

Orvis Fly Rods

Stroud Tackle was an Orvis Dealer from the early 1980s. We have located a number of older Orvis rods in storage and are now offering them for sale. These rods date from the mid 1980's to the early 2000's. Most of the rods listed are in mint condition. Many of the tubes were still sealed in the plastic the rods were shipped in until we opened them up to check on the condition of each rod. A couple of these may have been on the display rack at some point in time but most had not been out of their tubes until we recently insepected them. Some of the tubes may show some exterior dust or wear from being moved around a storage facility over the years. However the rods are in pristine condition.

J Kennedy Fisher Fly Rods

We turned up a couple of very special (we think!) heavy duty rods suitable for bluewater angling.   These are rods suitable for billfish, tuna, and sharks.   They are also heavy rods.  I wouldn't want to cast one all day, but if taking a few shots at big fish they are just fine.  Despite there heavy weight and line designation, these rods are not "broomsticks."  The tips flex nicely for such heavyweight fly rods into the top of the middle section and get out of the way to allow you to lift with the lower half of the mid section and the butt section when you are hooked up with a monster.

Ultimate

Ultimate-13

8'6" 13 wt 3pc

$250

Heavy duty fly rod suitable for casting to tuna, billfish, and sharks.  This rod would also be suitable for chasing Costa Rican river tarpon where its lifting qualities would be appreciated.    Here in Southern California this model was used yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, albacore tuna (back when they used to make an appearance), blue shark, mako shark, and even homeguard yellowtail. In Baja California this rod was used for yellowfin tuna, wahoo,, sailfish, and striped marlin. This is a great lifting rods that will easily fling 550 to 600 grain shooting heads to breezing tuna or make a short toss to a teased up bill fish. 

 

Hypalon fighting butt with a long single piece hypalon foam grip and heavy duty aluminum reel seat.   As with all Kennedy Fisher rods it has the internal spigot ferrule.  Comes with a rod sock and aluminum tube.    The rod sock has a distinctive odor; however, the rod is in mint condition.  The aluminum tube has some marks on it. 

Bluewater

Bluewater-14

8'6" 14 wt 3pc

$250

Heavy duty fly rod suitable for casting to tuna, billfish, and sharks.  Here in Southern California this model was used yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, albacore tuna (back when they used to make an appearance), blue shark, mako shark. In Baja California it was used for bigger billfish.  This is a great lifting rods that will easily fling 600 to 800 grain shooting heads to breezing tuna or make a short toss to a teased up bill fish. 

 

Rubber and cork fighting butt with a split cork grip and heavy duty Fuji  composite reel seat of the type commonly found on heavy duty standup conventional rods.  This is a very solid reel seat of the same type that is on my conventional tuna sticks. Comes with a rod sock and aluminum tube.    The rod sock has a distinctive odor; however, the rod is in mint condition.  The aluminum tube has some marks on it. 

Discount Clearance Redington Fly Rods

Redington Fly Rods

We have been a Redington dealer since the mid-1990s. We have located a couple of boxes of 2 piece Freshwater (FSF) and Saltwater (SSF) fly rods in storage and may turn up a few more.  Two piece rods are much less popular now but are just fine if you don't travel.   All rods are new and offered at a steep discount. Of course, all of these rods are available for purchase in person in the shop too.  Original retail prices on these rods were $225-$250.  All rods include a sock and an aluminum rods tube.  All of these rods are unused.  Some of the tubes may have some scrapes or scratches.
