August's Note from Charlie

I blinked and July was History!! Wow, August and its Dog Days are upon us. The area rivers have warmed up and fishing has come to a halt. But, alas we have the Swift River and streams up north in New Hampshire to provide us with a "fix" if and when we need it. The Swift was stocked with Rainbows and Brookies in early July and is producing nicely with clear, cold water as an added bonus. The sulphurs are poppin' and the fish are cooperating on a daily basis. A really hot and humid day is no match for the Swift River as it’s clear, cold water trump even a hot muggy day!! A mental health day is in your future as I see it from here!!

I am just back from a mediocre trip to Colorado with 5 other men. The fishing was passable, but not great. Most of the rivers we fished were high from the runoff as well as from recent thunderstorms. Our biggest fish was 17-18" and there were only 1-2 in this size class. I came back to a flooded-out fly shop as a pipe burst upstairs at the restaurant above me and filled the store with water for approximately 1 1/2 days. With alarms ringing and town departments on the premises, I was able to have my wife react to the issues until I returned to a "real mess". My mind wasn't as sharp with all these issues pulling at me. It took 5-6 days to dry out the shop and get back to some normalcy.

But I'm back and the shop has returned to regularly open hours and there are always things to look forward to. Here is a quote to smile as you read "My biggest worry is that my wife (when I'm dead) will sell my fishing gear for what I said I paid for it." - Koos Brandt

Biggest Bang for Your Buck!

If you think buying from the mega fly fishing stores will get you better pricing, compare our prices on all products. Charlie 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.
