………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Scottish fly fishers began adding leather protection to fragile willow creels.  Over time the leather work became elaborate as well as functional.  The McMonies harness shop of early 1900, Oregon took the process to high art.  The McMonies creels are today, among the most sought after of vintage fly fishing articles

Thus inspired, we began offering collector grade creels in the early 90’s; hand sewn components, buck-stitched to the creel.  We also leather collector creels owned by customers.  Please see above photo’s of our work as well as those on our, ‘GALLERY’, page.  Our existing stock of COLLECTOR GRADE creels has been whittled down to but a few with one being a grade 1.
