July's Note from Charlie

Welcome to the half-way point of the year. The fishing this spring and early summer has been the very best in recent years. Cool temps and lots of fish cooperating have been "the ticket". The Hex's are starting on the Squannacook River and dark is the time to stay and enjoy this time of year fishing over very large Hex mayflies. The Swift River will be stocked approximately July 1st and the river should be full. Go get 'em as this river is our summer oasis!! I recently took my son-in-law and nephew away for a trip to the Sacco in North Conway, NH. The fishing was unbelievable as we probably netted 30+ fish in 2 days. The Sacco is primed for some early summer time fishing. They were "rising" by the hundreds at dark.

I am putting together a trip for 6 people to Pittsburgh, NH. in mid-September. I will do all the arranging for free. If you want to go away with some nice guys, have a great time fishing the upper Connecticut River & do it all very, inexpensively, call or e-mail the shop for details. This will be an annual trip sponsored by the shop. You will get to fish the trophy section of the river for some big salmon, rainbows and brookies.

I will be away from July 19th - 26th for a trip to Colorado. The shop will be OPEN all week. I will report on my "findings".

As a heads-up, the annual fly casting competition / cookout will be held on August 24th. Call to sign up for the casting and let me know how to plan for the correct amount of food. Come have a fun time, enjoy some laughs and have a bite to eat.

On August 17th, we will be holding the shop's annual River(s) clean-up. There will be a cookout afterwards at the shop. Please sign up ASAP as we need as many volunteers as possible to clean up and protect our 2 area rivers. Please pitch in and make a difference!!

Happy 4th of July to you and your families!

Regards and thank you,

Charlie Shadan

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 mega store 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.

I will be in Colorado from July 19th thru the 26th but the fly shop will remain open for normal business hours during the week. I will return to the shop on July 27th with hopefully great stories to share.
