On the cusp of Joe Saracione’s recent release of the Mark V sealed drag reel, Joe and Delores Saracione sent out an announcement to all of their dealers indicating they will no longer provide sales service to dealers, but will sell direct retail via the internet.
The main reason? Lifestyle change. Joe and Delores have been building and supplying incredible reels for a very long time. If you have ever spoke or emailed these two wonderful people you will know they have a very small crew handling a very large job. Joe and Delores felt it was time to slow down a bit and enjoy life in the “non-fast lane”.
We at Stillwater Fly Shop will miss the emails and phone calls with the Saracione’s. We will miss the pleasure of opening one of the classic black reel boxes and handling these magnificent reels before sending it on to the customer. But most of all we will miss Joe and Delores as they are truly, very nice and very gifted people.
Rest assured that Joe will continue to support his product in warranty repair service for any reel that has his name on it.
We wish them all the best. We have a few Saracione reels left in stock.
