North West Classic Tackle is dedicated to offering the best equipment that is available for Fly Fishing and Hunting and Plug Casting. Also we will offer books and other miscellaneous items related to the fishing and hunting sports. Most if not all of the equipment offered will have been used and tested by myself and found to be the best gear available at present. We will try to offer new equipment along with classic equipment if the new gear has been found to be both useful and of good quality.

     I have been fly fishing for 45 years and had my first love affair with bamboo over 35 years ago. I got my first bamboo rod, which was a Hardy Palokona in Frederickton, New Brunswick, when I was 16 years old. It was an 8 foot 3 piece rod and was $60.00. I have been an addict ever since. I was fortunate to have grown up in the East and learned of Leonard and Orvis and Payne by working for William Mills & Son in my high school years. I worked there until the company went out of business and ended up buying the name at the auction. I have published fishing & hunting books under the name of Freshet Press and then found myself out West where I was fortunate to meet Gary Howells and Andre Puyans. I considered Gary to be the finest rod builder alive but he is no longer with us. He died this past April and will be truly missed.

     I am always looking for good classic tackle and will pay top value for one piece of your whole collection. Please e-mail me or call and we can set up an arrangement for me to view your items for sale. If there is a special item that you are looking for, please let me know and I will try to find it for you.

     I hope that you enjoy viewing our items for sale and hope that you find something that meets your fancy in our pages. We offer a three-day return policy for any item that is purchased provided that it is returned in the same condition that you receive it. If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me.

Thanks for viewing.
