December 2020 Update

To my loyal & valued customers,

Let the joy of the season overcome the gloom from the virus!! We will eventually find ourselves “mask-less”, within 6 feet of our friends, neighbors, and associates, and embracing the future with fervor.

Merry Christmas and a bountiful holiday season to all from Charlie and the staff of Evening Sun Fly Shop. Without Kim, John, and Brian I would be hard-pressed to conduct the shop. Without all of my loyal clients – I would not have the shop – Period!! Thanks to all.

During the month of December, you are commonly asked by family members “What would you like for Christmas?” Well, Evening Sun’s answer is why not a gift certificate from the shop. This way you can come in with your certificate in tow and purchase exactly the items that you want to fill out your fly fishing needs. All it takes is an email or call and I will process your gift certificate for your family members for you.

River News – The Squannacook and Swift Rivers are producing well into the fall. Weather is nice, water levels are good. Go get ’em!

Thank you all for your loyalty and please remember I would not be here without your support.
Regards and See You on the Water,
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.
