On these pages you will find information about our organization and what we offer to people who are interested in learning more about old fishing reels.
ORCA is The Old Reel Collectors Association, Inc., which is a non-profit, educational corporation.
Our Caddis Fly Shop staff fish Winston: this allows us to better advise our clients regarding their fly rod selection and helps us compare the potential performance and price of Winston in relation to other highly respected fly rods including SAGE, ECHO, BURKHEIMER, BEULAH, and SCOTT. Some of the largest sellers of high end fishing tackle have little real world experience, they just move the product.
This was true in the cane rod age and is true today, in a time when Winston still crafts bamboo fly rods alongside with their signature boron and graphite fly rods.
From Yeti Coolers to Simms and Patagonia gear; from giant saltwater hooks to the smallest spring creek fly hooks, we can provide every imaginable product you might be considering for the unfolding season, but only if these products have passed our own quality standards.
