August’s Message from Charlie

Welcome to the unofficial "Dog Days of August". Usually we are experiencing ultra low waters on our area rivers by this time. It is not the case this year. Continual precipitation has at least kept some semblance of water in the streams. The Squannacook and Nissitissit rivers are still yielding trout in the mornings and evenings. What a pleasant surprise. The Swift River is cold and has fish. The Deerfield is our state GEM!! There are still places to fish - Did I dare say that it is August? Mother Nature is truly a fickle GIANT! It is vacation time - steal a day, pack a lunch, bring some cold drinks and enjoy our state’s waters. Work will be there when you get back. I'll promise you that when you arrive back at your desk, cubicle, or work station that it didn't even miss you!! These are the "Doctors orders".

The Three Rivers Stocking Group is having its 7th annual Fundraising Auction on September 18th 2017 at the Flag Hill Winery & Distillery. Visit for details. This organization does a phenomenal job of stocking the Lamprey, Cocheco & Isinglas rivers of SE NH. Please give them your support by donating to their cause. They provide a worthwhile service to all us fly fisherman. Admission is $10 to the auction and that gets you a barbeque dinner. A cash bar will be available. If you fish these above named 3 rivers, you are aware of their fine work. I will see you there.

The shop is fully equipped with new rods, reels, lines, waders, Korker Boots, rubber nets, etc. Come in to see some of the new items for you to improve your gear.

See you on the water!!

Internet vs ESFS Purchasing

Internet Purchasing

Evening Sun Purchasing

  • Can't see or touch product
  • Often you pay for freight/shipping
  • No custom fitting on waders or boots, sunglasses or any item where sizing is critical
  • Not usually a knowledgeable, trained person to talk to who has used the product(s)
  • Minimal if at all rewards program
  • See, touch and feel before you buy
  • No freight/shipping charges
  • Try it on before you buy it. Sizing is critical to your purchase
  • Well skilled, trained people to talk to and explain your needs
  • A rewards program that yields up to 31% for your purchasing. Unheard of in the industry!!!

These are at least 5 reasons to consider calling, stopping in, or e-mailing the shop before you CLICK the mouse. You will help to support a local business that truly cares for you as a client and you will pay no more and always get FREE shipping to your door. Please try us out!!

Look closely at the rewards program in conjunction with your purchase needs as I can confidently make the claim that the Evening Sun Fly Shop is the least expensive fly shop in America - Bar none!! There is no fly shop that I know or any conglomerate, mega box store that competes with my prices.
