December's Note from Charlie

I hope everyone survived the wrath of Mother Nature on Turkey Day and by the time you are reading this newsletter your power has been restored. Hooda Thunk It?? I ordered a milder winter this year from my supplier and I hope he delivers!! Not ready for the white stuff just yet. The area rivers are still fishing ok and there are plenty of fish to be had. Everyday clients are coming thru the door here at the shop with "tales" of success. I recently fished the East Branch of the Westfield River and also the Deerfield River as well and caught lots of fish on both rivers. Pick a nice day in the high 40's low 50's and venture out for a relaxing day at your favorite river. The Swift has a large amount of brookies waiting to bite your offerings. Why wait??

On Saturday, December 13th, I will be hosting the shop's annual Holiday Cheer day with music, drinks, lots of food and fly fishing videos. Drop in, have a bite to eat, say hello to lots of friends and usher in the holiday season on a high note. We would enjoy seeing everyone before Santa makes his appearance. Come hungry as there will be lots to enjoy.

Beginners Fly Tying Classes will resume in January 2015. This will be the second round of classes for beginners. If interested, call the shop or send me an e-mail ASAP as all the classes fill up quickly. I will go over all the details with you on a one-on-one basis.

In February 2015, I will be teaching an all day dry fly tying course for intermediate to advanced tyers. If interested, call the shop for details on the class and the date. Every year this class sells out quickly. Come learn wing techniques with CDC, mallard, wood duck, etc. Parachute wings will be covered, use of Coq De Leon for tailing purposes and overall techniques for quills and many other dry fly procedures will be covered. The cost of the class is $100.00 and will include all materials, hooks and a nice lunch and drinks.

 "Fly Tyers Corner" and several shop presentations will commence in January 2015. Watch for the January 2015 newsletter for dates and times for all the new events that the shop will be hosting in 2015.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Evening Sun Fly Shop!

Biggest Bang
for Your Buck!

If you think buying from the mega fly fishing stores out west will get you better pricing, compare our prices on all products. Charlie recently did an analysis and found his prices were much better across the board.

Don't be fooled by the megastore image. Their overhead is enormous and someone has to pay for that! In addition, you get to see, touch, and feel the products at Evening Sun before you buy. The big bonus is there are no shipping charges.
