For beginners - a must stop. I had a great experience at the shop yesterday. I really appreciate the quality products but more importantly, the fantastic service and education provided by the staff. They were happy to spend as much time with me as I wanted and I never felt rushed. I really got a bonus when they put their heads together on several issues. I am a beginner to fly fishing and did enough homework to be dangerous but the experience they had was critical in my decisions as to what to purchase. I look forward to continuing to purchase from this shop.
A nice little shop with a lot of selection. My regular shop closed forever due to the pandemic and I've had to resort to buying stuff at big box fishing stores that never had anyone with experience or the ability to answer questions.
That's not this place. Every question asked was pushed in the direction I needed to go. I left with way more than I expected.
While I was there several other people were helped and it was funny listening to the conversations between the staff and patrons ranging from I need this to do that. Or the grandmother who was shopping for her adult grandson out of state. Clearly, she wrote down a few words she heard in a conversation and the staff helped fill in the blanks. Never was she pressured to get this or that and was also informed about gift cards and online ordering. And in the end, she still left with a handful of flies and other stuff that she picked out herself without any pressure besides if you have any questions just ask.
This store is a GEM! Besides all the gear anyone would need, they have the most knowledgeable staff. Knowing my husband can be a challenging customer (believes he knows more than anyone else so he doesn't trust anyone), I really didn't have many expectations of having a successful shopping trip. Jared quickly gained his trust and was able to get him all set up. He never once tried to upsell us anything either! I was very impressed with Jared and the store. Top-notch experience!
