Interested in Fly Fishing or Fly Tying? Want to ask questions or discuss any aspect of fly fishing, we have a fly tying evening every other Wednesday evening from 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM at the store.

 

We sell Hunting and Fishing licenses.

We are pleased to report that we have been accepted as a dealer for Waterworks-Lamson. While we have a small selection of reels to choose from at this time, we look forward to carrying the whole product line in the spring.

Live Bait.

Fresh minnows have been hard to come by. What we get varies from batch to batch but we normally have medium Muds, Dace, and a few Shiners. We sometimes have medium shiners while the weather is cold but there will be fewer shiners as they are not very hardy during the warm weather and don't last worth a damn.

If you are looking for any kind of fishing gear, please come see us for competitive pricing. We do not "Price Match" as we do not have the same buying power as the big guys. Don't buy it there and come to us complaining there were no instructions or expect us to show you how to use it.
If we can find it at one of our suppliers, we will order it at no extra charge as long as we can include it in a regular order. For orders, a minimum 50% deposit is required.
There will be no exceptions anymore! No deposit = no order. It's that simple. Gift certificates do not equal a deposit and they will not be accepted for licensing.

We can tell you what the published price is for an item but will no longer give exact quotes due to the dollar fluctuating and freight rates.

We are not a warranty depot for any manufacturer at this time. If you have problems with a product you have purchased from us, we can find out where to send it but will not be responsible for shipping or warranty repairs for most items.

We also do rod and reel repairs.

If you have old rods and reels you are going to get rid of, we would be happy to accept them for parts. As some others have found out, you may be supplying the parts to fix your fishing partners or one of your reels.
Some rods can not be fixed because they are too badly damaged. I can't tell for sure until I have looked at the rod. There is no charge for inspection. Sometimes when it's a specific guide or tip, it may take a week or two and longer to get the item in.
Most reels can be repaired but there is a very surprising number of mid to high end reels that parts are not available for or they are very hard to get.

One reel that parts are not available for is the Rapala line. If the reel is in warranty, send it to them for warranty replacement. They do not stock any parts.

Many of the "Parts Depots" are very poor at processing orders or getting them out. When they do, very often the price is more than a new reel. Whether it was due to a design flaw, lack of supply, or what, there seems to be no real valid reason. There is minimal to no charge to check a reel out.

We are located on the north side of Development Drive in the Bayridge Plaza.
Turn off Gardner's Road and go 1 kilometre west. You will see the Bayridge Plaza on the right and we are located in there.
