January 2020 Update

To my loyal & valued customers,

Happy New Year to all!

The mysteries of life, their uncertainties, and un-explained aspects are now all clear to me as I will now be seeing them through “2020” vision. How clear all things are now to me!! I wish it was just that easy. Flip the switch – get clarity.

The moderate weather has left us with a wealth of fishing opportunities, that many folks are taking advantage of. Just to name a few: the Swift, Squannacook, Nissitissit, Millers, Deerfield, Isinglas, Cocheco, Lamprey and Exeter Rivers are all producing fish during the warmer times of the day.

Pick a warm one and venture out to your favorite spot. Make a memo to oneself to start off your new year getting out more often and to places where you have left no previous footprint!

The shop is planning an ambitious year for classes, seminars, and presentations. Get “your share” by signing up for 1 or more during the upcoming months. This newsletter will announce the dates and times etc. for this years’ lineup.

If you see something that you like – don’t wait because most if not all classes or presentations always sell out.

Call or email the shop with your requests for inclusion. Remember “the early bird gets the……” This newsletter is chock full of items for 2020. You may want to read it twice to help you decide what may “catch your fancy”.

Fish hard, Fish Deep, Fish Often,

Happy New Year & Regards,

Charlie Shadan

Internet Purchasing vs. ESFS Purchasing

When you take a look at the rewards program being offered and all the products I carry for your needs, it should become apparent that I’m trying to meet the needs of everyone in the fly fishing community.

Please look closely at the rewards program in conjunction with your purchase needs as I can confidently make the claim that with the rewards program the Evening Sun Fly Shop is the least expensive fly shop in America – Bar none!! There is no fly shop that I know or any conglomerate, mega box store that competes with my prices.

So you think you know everything?

The ESFS will be running every month interesting factoids…

The Quadrantid meteor shower will be exceptional this year, reaching its peak in the early predawn hours of Saturday, January 4. Expect to see approximately 25 meteors per hour flash in the sky or up to 100 per hour at the shower’s maximum. Thankfully, the Moon will play along and set well before dawn that night, leaving us with perfect viewing conditions for a meteor shower.
