Testimonials

  • Best fly shop in Bend and in fact best shop in Eastern and Central Oregon. Love these guys. I am fairly new to fly fishing and tying (almost two years at both) and these gentlemen are always willing to answer all my questions and help in anyway. I love to visit when I come over from Burns. You guys rock and thank you for helping this fly girl out. Thanks Bob and all the guys.

  • Best fly shop in Bend. It’s where the local's go... Always helpful and get you set up so you can spend more time on the water. Can't say enough about the customer service, they aren't in it just to make a buck, but truly care about getting you out enjoying fishing at every level. Thanks Guys!

    - Jordan Swart

  • This is my favorite fly shop in Bend. Always friendly and helpful, never trying to sell you something you don't need. Keep it up guys! 

    - Kenny Stangenberg

  • Very helpful will answer any of your questions no matter how silly. I'm not from the area and was looking for some direction and advice and I did not leave disappointed. I will visit this fly shop every time I return to bend from now on.

  • My husband and I really appreciated Peter's time and, yes, patience today when we took fly fishing 101 with him. I hope that this is the start of a new way of seeing rivers, bugs, and fish!
