One of the best things about my job — and there are a lot of best things — is working with young companies. These are businesses, often run by young entrepreneurs, who haven’t been on the fly fishing scene for very long.

Don’t get me wrong, I love all our TU Business members. I love working with the heavyweights — the ones we all know and love. They make and sell great products, and most of them are generous supporters of conservation. But sometimes, it’s the little guys and gals that are new in the game that can make a day really shine. So it is with Pescador on the Fly.

You may not have heard of Jeff Ditsworth and his small company in West Des Moines, Iowa. They make packable fly rods and combos from 3 weight to 8 weight that are just the thing for the traveling angler, backpacker or someone that wants to easily carry a solid back up rod. They are the exclusive producer of Jeff Currier designed trout and fish decals. And they produce a nice selection of fly fishing accessories like sling packs and discount fly assortments.

But let’s cut to the chase. Maybe you or someone you know is looking for a quality fly rod, but the up-front cost is holding you back. Or maybe there’s a young person on your list who needs some entry-level gear. Entry level gear that is surprisingly high quality for the price.  Have we got a deal for you.

Actually our friends at Pescador on the Fly have a deal for you. They have a package where everything is included. Like the special they’re offering right now on their Econ 101 Trout Combo package. 

 What’s more, they stand up for conservation. They’re a TU Business member, and right out of the chute, they made the decision to devote a portion of their sales back to conservation. That’s a real commitment for a small company. But it’s the kind of commitment that makes them special.

You can check them out on Facebook or at 

We’re proud to have Pescador on the Fly as a TU Business member.
