Jeff has always been great to deal with. This is my second rod from Main Fly Co. and I could not be more pleased. Exceptional quality and top notch customer service. I love supporting small independent companies.
I own three Main Rods, a 2wt and a 4wt and I bought a 4wt for my son. They are beautifully crafted light and a joy to cast. The Kennebec is a top quality rod and wonderfully built and a pure pleasure to fish with.
First off, some of the best customer service I've ever seen. Jeff was able to help me in a pinch. Second, this is the most beautiful rod I've ever used. Awesome smooth action, holds great while roping blue ribbon trout &salmon. Truly blown away and definitely recommend. If you don't already have it, it'd be a lot cooler if you did.
Wow ! Simply wow with everything. I normally dot write reviews . This one I had to. I just was able to start playing with this rod. I put on a Teton reel with 5wf Orivs Pro Trout line . I was only able to lawn cast this setup. Simply WOW ! I can shoot line like crazy ! It to me loads line with tight loops very easy. With the wood grip. obviously makes the rod a little bit heaver, I actually think it helps me cast better. The rod and craftsmanship is second to none ! I own many rods. I got everything I wanted and a lot more. Looks great next to my grouse guns to ! Very classic !. Maybe my new favorite rod. Thank you.
I opened the box expecting a fly rod but I received a work of art! This rod is absolutely beautiful. Even my wife, who couldnt give a rats $/&;@, said it was amazing. There is 10 feet of snow in my backyard in Crested Butte right now. It will be some time before I can fish the river with my new fly rod, however, I can attest to the quality of the build. If it fishes as good as it looks, it will be the best piece of gear Ive ever purchased. Jeff should be proud of this hand crafted rod. I will leave a working review when the snow melts. Until the
Jeff built a rod to give my husband for Fathers Day that he will one day pass on to our son (who is just shy of a year old). He was amazing to work with and has a real eye for beauty. He got incredible personal service and a piece that will be in our family for generations.
This fly rod (7wt Penobscot Bay) is absurd. High quality build, incredible customer service, and a local company too. The rod is amazing - powerful with plenty of feel, it can deliver a large fly in winds that might normally send me home. And it has the backbone to fight a sizable bass. Couldn't be happier with the purchase - it might be my first rod from this crew, but it most certainly won't be my last.
Ordered a custom Landlocks at the start of the Covid lockdown as part of a birthday present for my wife. Jeff at MFC was amazing to work with and made an absolute masterpiece. I had reached out to him early enough and gave him an extended timeline on the project and he was able to accommodate all of my requests except a custom reel seat (which wasn’t an issue, and he has since started turning his own reel seat inserts). He absolutely knocked it out of the park with this rod, even getting a purple thread to match a purple reel I had gotten to pair with this rod and making an extra tip section, along with several other special features that I had requested. If they don’t have a Landlocks in the specs you are looking for don’t hesitate to custom order one, You will not be disappointed.
After buying my Kennebec, I decided I would go down to Yarmouth and check out the store. I was greeted by some of the most friendly people I’ve ever met. The rod itself performs amazingly and I’m very happy with my purchase. I’d gladly buy many more MFC rods in the future.
