Mayfly Outdoors adds vise and tool business

Mayfly Outdoors – the owner of brands including Ross and Abel Reels and Airflo ­– is buying Dyna-King, one of the world’s foremost manufacturers of fly-tying vises and tools.

As a result, production of all of Dyna-King’s equipment will switch to Mayfly’s headquarters in Montrose, Colorado.

President of Mayfly Group, Jeff Wagner, said, “This is a great day for our company as we continue to grow our family of brands. Dyna-King is perfectly suited to join the Ross and Abel brands as US made, premium, legacy, fly-fishing products.

“We look forward to partnering with the Dyna-King retailers and customers that have known and trusted the brand for so many years. We will carry forward the legacy of innovation, quality and customer service that Dyna-King is known for.”

Karen Hall, Dyna-King’s current president, noted: “It is a positive move for Dyna-King. My mom and dad are giving me the ‘atta-girl’ from Heaven. We are excited to see the family legacy continue with a company that is willing to care for it.”

Mayfly will be transitioning the production and shipping of Dyna-King to their facility in Montrose over the coming months.

Karen added: “During this time we will be setting up machining, customer services, warranty and repair and other critical operations. We know this down time will cause some disruption for our dealers but we know this short wait will set us up for many years to come.”
