K&E Outfitters Philosophy


Fly fishing is simply too good for us not to share this thrilling, soul enriching experience with as many people as possible.  Unfortunately the big brands often 'price out' far too many would be anglers.  K&E Outfitters set out to do something about this.

We are seriously dedicated to working with manufacturers to make the sport that we love more available to others.  We purposefully work to make the whole gear buying process simple, especially for those with little or no experience.


First and foremost we make sure each and every piece of fly fishing equipment that we sell is of exceptional quality.  We rigorously test all of our fly fishing rods, reels, line, and accessories before we ever sell our first unit.  But even more importantly, because we are a small company, we are able to keep the cost down and pass that savings on to our customers.


We believe that people are more important than money and we think of our patrons more as a community of anglers.  We strive to treat our customers like we would a good fishing friend.  Our goal is to offer the absolute best customer service in the industry and are committed to doing what it takes to make service a big part of what separates K&E from the herd.  This promise is backed by a 1 year warranty against any manufacturing defects on all of our products.

We are extremely proud of the fly fishing gear that we offer and even more thrilled when we find the opportunity to fish with our customers.

K&E hope to see YOU on the water soon!
