April’s Message from Charlie

I underestimated your desire to help me "root out" why people are buying fly fishing items from the web. Your responses of help and input are going to go a long way towards helping me do a better job of servicing your needs.

First and foremost, I found that the "convenience factor" drives purchasing on the web. To that I say: send me an e-mail instead of some box store, along with your phone number and I will make sure that you get what you are looking for and send it to you freight FREE. Your benefit is personalized one on one service by me and sales toward the 2017 Fly Shop Rewards Program. The rewards program can pay you up to 30-33% during any calendar year depending on the level you achieve.  Don't overlook the value of this program to you! If I cannot source your item(s), I will let you know right away.

I have found from many clients that they want me to participate in Facebook more fervently. To that end, I have heard you loud & clear and have upped my presence in the social media arena. I have hired someone to help me with this endeavor. Be sure to "like" the fly shop on Facebook. I will be engaging more of my clients with product videos in the range of 1-2 minutes on Facebook to bring everyone up to date on new items as they arrive in the shop.

In spite of my best efforts to make all clients aware of the 2017 Rewards Program, it has come to my attention that lots of folks are not executing their redemption of awards from every level. Look for the details of the Rewards Program on my website, come in to the shop and ask for the details. It is really a program designed with you in mind. Save your yellow copies on every purchase and REAP the Rewards!!!

I want to assure everyone that the fly shop is healthy and thriving. Some folks were unclear about the intent of my original letter. Things are fine - I just want to do a better job of servicing your needs.

Thank you to everyone for your support of my fly shop as I embark on the start of my 12th year serving your needs as your local fly shop.

See you on the water!!

Regards and Thank you,

Charlie Shadan

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.
