  • Great family owned fly shop. They took time to help me and my wife to get the proper license and tell us were we should go. VERY HELPFUL. They also rent equipment  more »

  • Absolutely do not recommend. I made an appointment and was told one thing over the phone and then another when we got in. We had a 12:30 pm fishing trip and was told to get there about 15 minutes early. When we got to the store about 12:15 there was a sign on the door that said that they were out to lunch until 1 pm. When I booked the appointment I initially tried to book for 5 but they needed one guide for three people and they only had one guide available. I discussed that I had young kids and they would get bored fast and we talked about the other two adults being able to fish when the kids got bored which was okay with the person over the phone. Then I came into the store the day before to ask about being able to change the time, which they did accommodate. While I was there I discussed the situation and the guy said that we would still need to get fishing licenses for the extra adults which was no problem with us. The day we came for the trip it all changed. They would only permit the initial three to fish. I was very upset that I was told one thing when booking it and then another when we got there. I requested a refund which was denied. They did give boots for all five but in retrospect I would have chosen another company.
  • Had an awesome walking/waxing trip in the park with Trevor. He asked us before the trip whether we wanted to catch big fish or a lot of fish, to which we chose big. He took us to a beautiful area we hadn’t ever thought to go before and I got an 18-20 inch brown trout. Highly recommend parks fly shop as this trip was great and I’ve caught fish on almost every fly combo they’ve recommended over the past few months.
