Your Hometown Fly Shop

According to the latest stream side and porch front reports, the Sulphur hatch is on!  This is the time of year we have been waiting for. Stop by for what you need to match this most popular hatch!Stream closures for stocking continue, so give the newly introduced fish a few hours to settle.  Anglers who are up very early will take fish on small streamers and wooly buggers.  Nymphing techniques are effective throughout the day; try hare's ear, pheasant tail, princes and scuds.  Soft hackle and sparkle pupa patterns are effective beginning mid day.  Look for little black caddis around noon in addition to Blue Quill, Hendricksons, Red Quill, RS2s behind Caddis Patterns.
