Opening Saturday April 8…..The Flyfisherman’s Place
After 53 years of design, I have decided to retire and pursue my passion for fly fishing and fly tying, so in my 70th. year I am proud to announce the opening of my fly shop “The Flyfisherman’s Place” in Warren Maine.
As many of you know, I have had an eBay store for many years and I have accumulated a considerable amount of inventory. As a fly fisherman myself, I miss good old-fashioned fly shops. The internet is great, but sometimes it’s nice to kick back with a kindred spirit, shoot the sh*t and share local gossip. I hope you will come visit. About my shop:
My primary focus is on fly tying but I have a lot more to offer. I have a large selection of new and used fly rods, Sage, Loomis, Thomas &Thomas, St. Croix, as well as a selection of Bamboo and fiberglass rods, all in good condition and ready to fish. I also have a large selection of new and used books on tying, fishing, destinations, Atlantic Salmon books galore! I carry Wullf and SA fly lines, Tacky fly boxes, Trouthunter Fluoro, Leaders, Tippet, Indicators, Tippet rings, UV resins and so on and so on. Vises, tools and just about anything associated with fly tying. One final word about materials, my hook, thread, and bead selection is extensive, a large selection of European CDC, stripped Quills, Amadou, Bio thread catgut in six colors, you get the idea, lot’s of unique and hard-to-find “stuff”. Where am I?:
I’m in Midcoast Maine, a few miles south of Camden on Rt.1 or Rt. 90. The shop is in a converted garage next to my home at 408 Four Rod Road in Warren (see map) If you need further directions call (207) 273 4077.When am I open?:
Reliable hours are important, I intend to be open from 10am-3pm Wed through Saturday, but remember, this is a one man operation and I like to fish too, I do a few trips every year and the store will be closed when I am away, that being said, I live next door and I’m here most of the time. If you need something outside of regular hours just give me a call. Any changes in my hours will be posted on on my Facebook page “The Flyfisherman’s Place”
On opening day I hope to have some friends here to help, Rod McGarry will be here to help with rod selection and casting issues, Fly fishing photographer Richard Procopio will have tips on getting a great shot of a fish without killing it in the process, Artist Dan Daly may stop by and perhaps I can persuade Joel Anderson to bring some of his rods and give some tying tips.
