Default Re: Fly Shops and YOU!

Attitudes of the owner is critical. Many are snobs and I will avoid a shop just based on that. Outside of that classes, guide trips and knowledge of local water is critical.

I think most big ticket items can be had for cheaper online, so I don't really use the local shop for that. I do go there for flies, tackle and tying materials.

Also many fly shops are actually just outdoor clothing shops and have very minimal gear. That really makes me mad
