Hello, I’m Wayne Grauer, sole owner, chief cook and bottle washer for Grauer’s Fine Fly Tackle.  I’ve been in the fly fishing business for thirty plus years and have had the pleasure of meeting many of you at the various fly fishing shows on the East Coast that I have participated in over the years.

I was the oldest R.L. Winston dealer in the country.  Other companies I’ve represented were: Charlie & Steve Jenkins, Jon Parker, John Zimny, Hardy, Ross and Cortland.  I presently sell:  Hardy, Douglas, Cortland, Wulff, Chota and Pure Fishing products.

Over these many years,  I have had pass through my hands many of the classic and modern bamboo rods,  fiberglass rods and reels.  I’ve learned a lot about vintage tackle from persons such as Joe Garman, Fred Grafeld, Bob Selb, Tom Clark, Jack Coyle, Hoagy Carmichael, John Shaner and rod builders Per Brandin, Glenn Brackett, Tom Morgan, Jerry Kustich, Marc Aroner, Dana Gray, Domenic Croce, Charles and Steve Jenkins, Jon Parker, John Zimny and others.  These gentlemen were more than generous with their help and have become cherished friends and I am eternally grateful to them.

I am also an authorized dealer for the following products;

  • Rods & Reels: Douglas Outdoors, Croce and Zimny bamboo rods
  • Fly Lines: Royal Wulff, 406 and Cortland
  • Chota Outdoor Gear

I hope you may find something of interest on these pages.  If so, call me for more details.  I can send photos of any items of interest.

All items are described as accurately as possible, but I can, and do, make mistakes.  If you find something I missed, please let me know.

TERMS:  Check or money order.  Checks will be deposited and when check clears, the item(s) will be shipped.  Cost for shipping rods will be $25.00 and $15.00 for reels.  Items will be insured for their selling price.  I use USPS.  I do not ship to destinations outside of the U.S.

Buyers have a 3 day inspection and return privilege.  Items must be returned in the condition which they were sent.  Buyers are responsible for all postage and insurance fees on returned items.

Thank you to all of my customers and friends.  I’m looking forward to serving your tackle needs.
