December 2019 Update


To my loyal & valued customers,

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all and your families as well. I hope you get to share the season with your loved ones from near and far. Make a memory!

When you wake up tomorrow the ground will probably be white from the seasons’ first snowfall. Cherish the beauty from a freshly fallen shroud of snow.

If you are a snow enthusiast “your season” has arrived. For me it means fires in the fireplace, ramping up my fly tying and attending fly shows.

The shops’ annual Holiday Cheer Day will be held on December 15th at the shop. Please come by for some good food, holiday music, warm and cold drinks and a chance to see people that you haven’t had a moment to “catch up with”.

Pop in even for 10 minutes say hello, grab a bite and be on your way. It’s Party Time at the Evening Sun Fly Shop.

If you’re asked what you want for a gift this season – I’ll make it easy. Tell that person to get you a gift certificate from Evening Sun Fly Shop. This will allow you to pick out exactly what you want from a vast array of choices.

I’ve had the distinct pleasure of helping you make solid choices with your fly fishing purchases for the last 13 years. Thank you to all and from me and my family a heartfelt Thank You.

I would not be here without your loyalty and support. Your local fly shop wants to be your favorite place to further your knowledge, gather info, advance your skills and provide you with a resource that adds value to your endeavor of fly fishing.

Merry Christmas,
Charlie Shadan

Internet Purchasing vs. ESFS Purchasing

When you take a look at the rewards program being offered and all the products I carry for your needs, it should become apparent that I’m trying to meet the needs of everyone in the fly fishing community.

Please look closely at the rewards program in conjunction with your purchase needs as I can confidently make the claim that with the rewards program 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.
