A big thanks to you for setting me up with John Sweeney for our day and a half on the river. I had the most incredible day. John provided much info about the adirondacks, the rivers, the area, the insects, casting techniques, and of course, the trout. I can not remember a day I enjoyed more. I am looking forward to coming up again in September and spending another day or two on the rivers with John. --- With kind regards,Tom LoProto

We have added an online catalog of some of the fine quality products that we carry in the shop. Many of you have asked us if we have a catalog available, and let me tell you it is a big, big job, but we've finally gotten one started.

Our product offerings will expand as the year goes along.

So, please take a little time to browse through our catalog, look for items that you may need for the upcoming season, or point out some items you might like to receive as a gift, ask us about items you've seen in the shop that haven't made it online yet, ask any questions you may have on the products, we'll be happy to help you in as honest and straight-forward a manner as possible.

Hey! Let us know what you think about the catalog. You can contact us by e-mail or make reservations to attend one of our famous Free Flycasting Clinics and Barbeque!

And, thanks for visiting our website.
