On behalf of all of us here at Shannon's, I would like to thank all of our customers for your encouragement and support during this COVID-19 crisis. We continue to serve you, in a modified way. Please call or email us with questions and orders. Hopefully it won't be long before we can welcome customers new and old back inside to our historic shop on the banks of the South Branch here in Califon in some manner which keeps in mind the new reality we are all dealing with.
The good news is that trout fishing is open and the state has stocked a lot of trout, I mean hundreds of thousands of fish in fact holding back only about 48,000 of the 575,000 that are annually released each spring.... Anglers are commonly catching double digit numbers on area streams and these fish are really eating bugs this year and the recent rains have spread the fish out.
Normally, folks can come into the shop and check out all the new gear and angling news in person. Many of you have enjoyed my contribution
