July 2018 Update

To my loyal & valued customers,

Happy 4th of July to you and your families!!
The shop will be CLOSED Wednesday, July 4th in honor of the holiday.
The recent rain added some water to the Nissitissit and Squannacook rivers. The rivers are fishable and are still holding some nice fish in the deeper pools. Come on out this weekend and enjoy some time on the river(s). Early, early in the morning or 2 hours before dusk will be prime time to visit. Bring along some water for hydration and some bug spray for your stay.
Rumor has it that the Swift is to be stocked on 6/29/18. It is our local summer oasis because of the colder temps holding in the river all summer long. Take a trip to Belchertown and enjoy your time on the water. Call the shop for details or directions. I will be glad to help with your plans.

The shop is loaded with new fly patterns, fly boxes and leaders and tippet. Stop by so that you’ll be prepared to hit the stream with all that you need.

Thank you & See you on the water,
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.

Internet Purchasing Evening Sun Purchasing
Can’t see or touch product See, touch and feel before you buy
Often you pay for freight/shipping No freight/shipping charges
No custom fitting on waders or boots, sunglasses or any item where sizing is critical Try it on before you buy it. Sizing is critical to your purchase
Not usually a knowledgeable, trained person to talk to who has used the product(s) Well skilled, trained people to talk to and explain your needs
Minimal if at all rewards program A rewards program that yields up to 31% for your purchasing. Unheard of in the industry!!!

These are at least 5 reasons to consider calling, stopping in, or e-mailing the shop before you CLICK the mouse. You will help to support a local business that truly cares for you as a client and you will pay no more and always get FREE shipping to your door. Please try us out!!


The ESFS will be running every month interesting factoids…..

Contrary to popular belief, only two Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The majority of signers penned their signatures on August 2, 1776. The holiday does not celebrate the signing of the Declaration; it celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence by the Second Continental Congress.

Lost Rod

A shop client fell in the Sqannacook River about 1 1/2 weeks ago and lost his rod, reel, and line in the swift current. He lost the items below the Cable Pool on the Squannacook River in the Peter Bertozzi section. He fell about 20-30 yards below where the cable crosses the river. If you find the items, please bring them to the shop and I will reunite them with their rightful owner. As the water recedes, they may become more visible.
