January's Note from Charlie

As I mentioned in the December newsletter, I ordered a milder winter and so far my supplier has "delivered". He has back-ordered the rest of it and will deliver in time and on time.

The milder times have led to continued fishing on the Nissitissit and the Squannacook Rivers. All the rains have led to a spike in flows but this should provide some good midge fishing in January 2015. The Swift River in Belchertown is still fishing very well and is yielding some nice fish daily. Sneak a day on this local tailwater and enjoy a good day with a friend. Dress warm, bring a nice lunch and thank the almighty for this piece of geography near our homes that provides a nice respite for a day's fishing. The Millers river is running real high and may require more time to come down. Follow Ken Elmer's blog for timely information on the Millers and the Swift.

During October or early November, a fly fisherman with an English accent called in to the shop and said that he had found a spool for a reel at the Peter Bertozzi area of the Squannacook River. He said that he was going to bring it by the shop so that if I found the owner I could re-unite him/her with the spool. Well I have found the owner and would greatly appreciate if he could drop off the spool and line to the shop so I could call the owner and get it back to him ASAP. Please call the shop if you found the spool and speak to me ASAP.

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.
