Our goal is not to be the biggest or offer the most product.  Our mission is to be the most informed + instructive shop you’ll step foot in, and when you leave, you’ll feel equipped and confident to angle for the wild trout that inhabit our waters.  We want you to succeed.  We want you to enjoy fishing.  We want you to return happy.  That’s why we’re here.
