Fish Have Been Stocked!
Woohoo!! Spring is finally here! After a very long winter, we are pleased to announce that it's officially fishing season. The Nissitissit was stocked on April 16 and the Squanacook on April 17. Each river was stocked with 1,000+ rainbows all ranging from 12-15 inches in size. Go get 'em before the herons do!
April's Note from Charlie
The shop is closing due to unforeseen circumstances beyond my control. Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive thru the years.
The calendar says April but if I was blind-folded, I'd say it feels like very late February or early March. What's up with Mother Nature?? Massive mud slides, earth quakes in LA, major snow storms on the Cape and 5" of rain in the northeast!! Where are my sneakers and tennis shorts? Will I ever use them again? But alas, the weather prognosticators keep saying that the warmth is on the way. I think I'm a skeptic. Never used to be. I certainly hope they are right. How can it be possible that I'm looking forward to seeing mosquitoes, black flies and the dreaded tick. Am I alright?. Call with help!! I visited the MDFW on Friday 3/28/14 to find out that our stream and river stocking is way behind. In the northeast district, the ponds, lakes etc are still frozen and have put a damper on scheduling. Stay tuned to my website as I will keep you posted with up to date info on stocking.
APRIL FOOLS - I'M NOT GOING ANYWHERE!!
Regards and thank you,
Evening Sun Fly Shop

LOST & FOUND - Fly box in Pepperell
A fly box with approximately 300-400 flies was found in the road (Longley Road) near Rite-Aid in Pepperell up the street from my shop. It appears that it might have been left on the roof of a car after a day of fishing the rivers nearby. To claim the fly box if yours, please contact the shop and be prepared to describe the box in detail.
Biggest Bang for your Buck!
If your perception is that buying from the mega fly fishing stores out west will get you better pricing, Charlie invites you in to compare his prices on all fly tying materials and other items. 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
Come in and browse and see for yourself that Evening Sun Fly Shop is truly the small store with the biggest selection and fabulous pricing.
