Suppliers and Manufacturers

In addition to offering expert instruction, tutelage, and advice, we are proud to be partnered with some of the best name-brands in the fly fishing industry.

Sage is one of the world's top fly rod manufacturers, who combine cutting-edge technologies with some of the best craftsmanship you will find on the market today. With fly rods that will satisfy the budget-minded or beginning angler, all the way up to the world's most advanced and technical rods for the most demanding of conditions, there is a Sage rod for everyone.

The R.L. Winston Rod Company is a venerable rod manufacturer that combines one of the most honored histories in the rod-making industry with the latest in technology. Winston rods are as beautiful to look at, as they are to fish -  hence the expression "fish a Winston for a day and you'll be hooked forever."

Simms manufactures the world's finest outerwear for the fly fisher. From highly technical fleeces, to the world's best-made waders (the only company to make their waders in the United States!), to rock-solid wading shoes, to some of the best rain gear on the market, Simms is an industry leader. Their products feature Gore-Tex and incorporate the latest in craftsmanship and high-tech materials. The fish never take a break for weather; why should you?

Patagonia is a leading manufacturer of outdoor equipment and clothing, including fly fishing. Patagonia is renowned for producing some of the highest end products utilizing eco-friendly manufacturing processes. They are also a founding member of One Per Cent for the Planet, a group to which it donates 1 percent of annual gross revenues to charities working on sustainability issues.

The Ross Reel Company makes some of the best fly reels on the market today. Handsome, reliable, and rugged, Ross reels are manufactured by people who fish, for people who fish, in Montrose, Colorado. 

Fly fishing shouldn't cost a fortune. Redington understands this, and their reasonable approach to the water reflects it. Reliable, quality gear at a great price has always been their hallmark. Rods, reels, outerwear, and more Redington rods are great for beginners, budget-minded anglers, or for those that don't get out enough to justify a high-dollar excursion into buying. Great product at a great price Redington delivers.

Most reel companies are started by machinists with extra time on their hands. What happens when a couple of engineers, who happen to be fly fishers, decide to make a reel? You get something like The Waterworks-Lamson company. Ultra-large arbor, super-high-performance reels, that incorporate many design ideas not seen in other manufacturers products. From trout to tarpon, and from entry-level to high-end, this

company has a reel for you.

It’s really about making your fishing better. It’s why we’re committed to pushing fly rod technology forward and have been leading the industry in innovation for 35 years. It’s why we get up every morning thinking about ways to make your fly rods perform better and fish better. It’s why we still handcraft every Scott fly rod with pride, one at a time, in our shop in Montrose, Colorado. The Scott Difference is also about taking care of you. It’s about making sure you’ve got the tools you need to enjoy your time on the water and to fish better when you’re out there. It’s about a 35 year journey down a path with good friends who share a love of fishing, the places it takes us, and the people we meet along the way.
The Scott Difference is all about doing it better.

The Peak Fly Shop has been serving Colorado Springs since March of 1996. We are a full-service fly shop, providing not only the finest in fly-fishing equipment, but also information, classes, guide services (CO Outfitters' License #2308), and destination trips. We carry many of the top name brands in the business.

Brad Tomlinson is the owner of the Peak Fly Shop. An avid fly fisherman, Brad turned his back on law school and parlayed his desire to be a trout bum into a career when he purchased the shop. Brad has taken the shop from a much smaller venture and expanded it, moving to the current, larger location in 2001.

Part of what separates us from the big sporting-goods stores is the personal attention we give our customers, the expertise of our staff and guides, and the advice about equipment and up to date fishing information that we're happy to share!
