February 2020 Update

To my loyal & valued customers,

As we LEAP from January to February 2020, I am reminded that spring is just around the corner. The onset of clear, crystal clean running water, bugs popping on the surface and fish swimming freely are images that bring a smile to the faces of fly fishers everywhere. Are you prepared for another memorable season? Are your waders old and leaking? Are your wading boots uncomfortable and tattered? Does your reel sound like it has seen better days? At the Evening Sun Fly Shop we can help to improve on all these situations. Come in for a consult and see how we can improve on your aging equipment. New waders, rods/reels, lines, vests and storage packs have arrived. Come see the line-up of new technology and improve upon your experiences on the water. YOUR GEAR MATTERS!!

Speaking of new rods, I will now be carrying Thomas & Thomas rods – Built right here individually in Massachusetts! They are hand crafted to perfection. A great rod guarantee, quality workmanship, USA made and affordably priced. These rods will arrive sometime in March 2020. Call or email the shop for details.

Please consider the shop Rewards Program before you purchase elsewhere. The rewards program can yield up to as much as 25%-30% more for you in additional items. On items where the price is fixed everywhere, it really pays to shop at the Evening Sun Fly shop. The shop has literally given over $8,000 in free merchandise from the rewards program over the last seven years. 

See you on the water — Fish hard, Fish Deep, Fish Often.

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.
