It's hard to believe that 20 years ago Tony wanted to purchase a wing cutter to speed up tying and to ensure consistency in every paired wing pattern and River Road Creations was born. Available options for purchase were limited or nonexistent, and rarely seemed to be the right shape or size. So Tony started making his own. As you can imagine, once one person saw how a cutter could offer speed, consistency and increased realism and Tony was making cutters for friends, then fly shops, and here we are today. . .
River Road Creations is owned by Tony and Kathi Tomsu. We are pleased to say that our early "philosophies" continue to this day... We still attempt to source as many of our raw materials locally, if possible. When a local option isn't possible, then purchase products made in the USA. Treat employees fairly ensure fair wages with as many benefits as possible. Ideally, hire the unemployed and underemployed and veterans within the scope of being an equal opportunity employer. Customers deserve to be treated better than we expect to be treated. Support community efforts to the extent possible, by donating to worthy causes. Honor our military and their families with military discounts. Acknowledge the immense value fly pattern developers, collaborating on cutter designs when possible.
As a result, we have been blessed by amazing employees and truly amazing customers, many of whom have developed into close friends.
We hope that the next 20 years introduces us to more of you. We always welcome and encourage your input. We are eager to help you get the most out of your River Road Creations' purchase, whether you bought directly from us, or from your favorite fly shop. If you have questions, email or call us, so we can help. Thank you for your business. We look forward to serving you in the future.
