Thumbs up Re: What are your TOP 3 Flyshops - Top down order

I'm going for great fly shops now gone! In no particular order:

General Fishing Tackle in Colorado Springs when Tony Gross owned it and Puterbaugh and Fling taught the classes. Quite a place!

Propps in Spokane when John Propp ran it although it was still a great place when the shop changed hands and was/is? called the Blue Quill!

Silver Bow in Spokane when Jim Pruedente ran it although it's still a going concern I just can't really comment on it now as I've not had a chance to get a taste of it under new owership! I do suspect it in fine hands just from their Facebook presence and calender of interesting events.

Any shop where Dave Olson hang his hat--who was the manager when I worked at the Fly Fisherman in Orlando but now has moved to Miami I've heard and is still offering his considerable expertise and great service.

Another interesting shop and still going is White's in Spokane as it's equally divided between general fishing, great clothing and "boots," of course and a great fly fishing section.

Worldwide Sportman in Islamorada--one of the pinnacle shops for the salt water fly angler! Still going of course! Well I could keep going with shops such as the Fly Fisherman in Titusville, and many others across the US but I have to face it my Truck has built in "fly shop finder" software and I've found most of them and most generally find some good if not great in each!

Kaufmann's Streamborn- Tigard, OR(now closed about 2 weeks)
The Patient Angler- Bend, OR
The Deschutes Angler- Maupin, OR

These three shops all made impressions on me as i was just starting out fly fishing. They all helped me significantly in some way.

1) Creekside fly shop, Salem, OR: The owner has been guiding for many years and has great info. Knows the hot fly.
2) kaufmann's streamborn, Tigard, OR: Friendly employees. If there is a hot new piece of gear you want to check out, they usually have it here.
3)Redtruckflyfishing.com,Unknown?: Great deals on shirts and everything else. I find myself checking this website often. The website is navigable.

Redtruckflyfishing is an online storefront of one of the forum's sponsors, Leland Fly Fishing Outfitters. It is based out of San Francisco, California. The guys and girls working there are good people.
