Mayfly Outdoors, parent company of Abel Reels, Ross Reels, and Airflo fly lines, completed its acquisition of Dyna-King, Inc., manufacturers of high-end fly-tying vises. Dyna-King’s production will move from Cloverdale, California to Montrose, Colorado, where Mayfly is headquartered, over the coming months.
“This is a great day for our company as we continue to grow our family of brands,” President of Mayfly Group Jeff Wagner said. “Dyna-King is perfectly suited to join the likes of Ross and Abel as U.S. Made, premium, legacy, fly fishing products.”
Dyna-King currently produces eight vise models, ranging in price from $900 for the Side-Winder Rotary to $375 for the Trekker travel vise.
“It is a positive move for Dyna-King,” Karen Hall, current President of Dyna-King, said. “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.”
