For over a quarter century, we’ve outfitted discerning anglers with the best gear from the best names in fly fishing. Everything from rod and reel outfits, apparel, books, video and gifts. In our shop in Darien Connecticut, we host classes by world class fly tyers and manufacturer demonstrations of the latest gear. We also sit around and talk about where the fish are biting and the pros that will “put you on them,” whether it’s trout fishing in the Rockies, chasing stripers on the Cape, or the best tarpon spots in Florida.
So we built this website to create an online experience that’s an extension of what we do best in our store — to be a "compleat" destination where anglers of all types can browse, learn, gear up and share fish tales or weigh in on just about anything — from the closing of the Pebble Mine in Bristol Alaska to the need for a striper slot limit in the Northeast. In the past, you had to drop by the store in Darien. Now, it’s just a click away.
We look forward to starting this new adventure with you. Let us know what you think.
