    Matt was upset helpful!
    My husband ordered two fly rods over Christmas as gifts and I wanted to order one for him for his birthday in February. I texted Matt and he answered immediately and knew just what I was looking for, put it in my cart and I had it ordered and bought in just a few minutes. So awesome!!

    Matt gave me the perfect experience!
    Very diligent, knowledgeable and helpful, I swear this guy doesn’t even sleep he wants to help so bad. I’ve messaged him late night and gotten responses, before I changed my mind on buying due to financial reasons, then as soon as I came back to him, I got a response within seconds. I will definitely be using this experience again, absolutely flawless. Thanks again Matt!

    Matt Beam was SUPER helpful and I wouldn’t have purchased rod without his expertise. Normally I would buy a product like this in store but found him to be more helpful that the guys at the “local shop” Excited to receive and absolutely will come back. The service of your curators made all the difference.

    Looking for a new rod
    I fished a shorter 5wt last summer for huge grayling here in Alaska, but needed a stiffer rod to reach further without having to power the rod. Matt made a recommendation and he was great making an adjustment in price to help with shipping costs.

    Matt was great!
    Coming onto curated I was just curious to see if the help from an expert was legitimate or going to be a super strenuous process. But, Matt started messaging me right away with so much help and I learned so much more about fly fishing outside of just buying a new setup. From here on out if I need any help at all I’ll be giving Matt a message!

    Aaron's experience with Matt
    The extra service was nice, but I confess I was a little taken back by the request for a tip. Especially when you started the entire process of harvesting information by saying that it was free. Nevertheless, the human (Matt) touch was nice and I will probably shop here again.

    Matt was great
    As someone who doesn’t know much about fly rods and what’s good and what isn’t, Matt helped me figure out the best rod to get for the type of fish and the type of fly fishing my boyfriend will be doing! Found the perfect Christmas gift thanks to him.

    Matt was very helpful.
    Matt was very helpful because, from the moment we were connected, I gained knowledge about fly fishing. I have always wanted to try fly fishing, but I did not know where to begin. I wanted to purchase a rod, a reel, some line, and a few flies, from there I thought that I could just go and fish. It turns out that there is more to fly fishing. I have more knowledge now, than from where I started, and that is because of Matt. Matt set me up with the equipment that I need to try fly fishing next Spring. Matt answered all of my questions and now I feel like I can make an attempt at fly fishing and practice a few tricks. Thanks Matt.

    Caleb's experience with Matt
    The whole process of checking in with a curator expert to checkout was very convenient. I was able to identify what I wanted and what I was interested in, then I was able to make a selection based on the expert's recommendations, and finally I was given a great deal on the products. The curator expert was also very informative, and he answered all of my questions. Now I at least have a sense of what to do come Springtime and when I decide to go fly fishing.

    Matt responded in a friendly and quick manner, and was able to narrow down his recommendations in just a few questions. The whole process was almost too easy. He also stayed well within my budget. I'd absolutely do it again. Thanks!
