September's Note from Charlie

A fine Labor Day to you and your families. I hope the grill is "fired up" and a cold beverage finds it's way to your hand!! We have been blessed with ample water on many area streams all through August, and September is shaping up to be a wonderful month for weather and fishing. The Sugar River in NH is high but still producing some nice fish. The Black River in Cavendish and Weatherfield, Vermont still has some beautiful 15"+ fish in the holes, and the east branch of the Westfield at the gorge is still producing some nice fish daily. As you can see, the rains have descended all around us regularly and all across the NE states the fishing has been superlative. If you would like to fish in any of these rivers during September, please call and I will be glad to help you find and fish them. I fished all these places in the last 2 weeks so I am confident that you will find willing participants in the water.

I have just brought into the shop some fine new wader/gear bags that deserve your attention. They are priced handsomely and really will provide adequate storage for your waders and boots as well as all your gear. I have just brought in new waders from Adamsbuilt Wader Co. that are truly worth taking a look at. Of course, don't forget about Korkers wading boots because of the interchangeable soles that allow you to fish anywhere. New multiple rod holders are in as well. They make it easier to carry several rods at once.

My sincere thank you to all who participated in this years' river clean-up day. We took out over 20 bags of trash and everyone was gratified that they helped protect our local waterways. We had a nice cook-out at the shop afterwards and a good time was had by all. A prize was given for the largest piece of trash taken out. About 15-18 volunteers helped.

The annual fly casting skills day was held on August 24th and we had a repeat winner. Philip Anker-Nogee was this years winner again. Philip is a teen angler who schooled some veteran casters!! Congrats to Philip!! He is a rising star in the fly fishing world and he will be heard from in the coming years. Philip - keep up your love of the sport.

Area stocking of the rivers will probably take place at the end of September. Watch for the notice as volunteers will be called upon to disperse the fish and keep the poaching to a minimum. E-mails will be sent out asking for help. Stay tuned!!

Thank you and Be Well,

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 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.
