This new line of top-quality merchandise includes fly rods and reels; a complete line of fly fishing clothing and waders; limited edition custom rifles; big game and upland hunting apparel; leather and canvas luggage; and wall tents and camping equipment.

"This is an exciting opportunity for us to provide our customers with the highest quality gear available," said Mark Baker, president and CEO. "Three Forks Ranch Edition(TM) merchandise doesn't just set the standard as the best gear -- it far exceeds it. This new line has been compared to the fabled King Ranch collection and the Dick Idol collection, but with a truly western flare. Whether it is fly rods, big game clothing or travel luggage, nothing on the market today comes close to the quality of Three Forks merchandise."

Outdoor writers who previewed the merchandise were very impressed by the superiority of the products. "The most innovative quality I have seen in a long time.

Doug Howlett, Articles Editor of Outdoor Life, added, "Three Forks is one of the finest sporting ranches in the West, and the Three Forks Ranch Edition merchandise truly reflects that quality."
