If you would like to buy an item, or would like to inquire about an item, please email or call. We do not have a “shopping cart” so all sales are first-come, first served.

Listings on CFT represent a small portion of the items we have available. If you do not see a rod or reel that you are looking for, send an email and one of us may have it.

Special interests among the CFT members include Leonard rods, Howells rods, Granger rods, R.L. Winston rods, E.C. Powell rods, Walton Powell rods, Phillipson rods, Orvis rods, Hardy reels, Wheatley fly boxes, Thompson reels, Arne Mason cases, Portland creels, and other traditional fly fishing items.

CFT ships to the US and Canada, Europe, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. Other countries are available by request. Postage in the US for most reels is about $6 and for most rods, about $15. We will calculate the precise postage. Payment by VISA, check, money order, cash, or PayPal is fine. Items are fully returnable for the purchase price provided that we receive them back in good condition.

We are always interested in buying good rods and reels, and other items. As the site develops and we become more proficient with the software, we will be posting notes and links that we find interesting.
