I'm an intermediate angler with little knowledge of equipment. Rylyn was very responsive to all my questions, even the ones I thought were stupid. Very open about what he does and how he is paid. I highly recommend him.

I bought an open box Orvis fishing rod and it was at a great price. The condition of the rod and the shipping time exceeded my expectations. The information I received from Capt. Mark was accurate and helpful. I would definitely buy from Curated again.

Helped me with some valuable fly fishing knowledge that I lack coming from the conventional fishing world. Hooked me up with a good starter rod and even price matched it with another company. Will be coming back for a reel soon.
