June 2019 Update

To my loyal & valued customers,  

The weather has been kind and refreshing for our area rivers. Our season has been extended into mid/late June because of the constant rainfall. We have been blessed with Mother Nature depositing her excess moisture upon us. Hurrah!!

Our local waters have plenty of fish in them as I have had 15-20 guided trips with clients and almost all have caught fish. Rainbows, Browns, and Brookies have been stocked for your enjoyment.

If you have not gotten out yet – What are you waiting for? The weather is great, work still sucks, and yard work will be there when you arrive back home!! Get the message. Say yes to your favorite stream, pack a lunch, go with a buddy and have a “fishy” good time. “Remember you don’t’ need a tee time to fish.”

ATTENTION: Happy Fathers’ Day — June 16th. The shop will be closing at 12:00 noon on Fathers’ Day – My family has plans for me!! Hee Haw!

New Korkers boots are flying off the shelf. They are the most comfortable boots for all-day wear. Do your feet a favor and surround them in comfort. You’ll be happy you did.

The shop is loaded with new waders, reels, fly lines, and rods. Come in to see the new line-ups of all these items.

That’s it for this edition of Fish Hard, Fish Deep, Fish Often!
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 PurchasingEvening Sun Purchasing
Can’t see or touch productSee, touch and feel before you buy

No custom fitting on waders or boots, sunglasses or any item where sizing is criticalTry 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 programA 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!!


So, you think you know everything?

The ESFS will be running every month interesting factoids…..
June is the month with the longest daylight hours of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

Good News: Lost & Found Items

The two fly boxes that were found on the Nissitissit River were reunited with their rightful owner. Thanks to John A. for bringing them in. This is a good example of fly fisherman being honest and empathetic to other fly people. It is nice to have a local fly shop to assist in recovery efforts.

Still looking for the owner of a net and lanyard that were turned into the shop’s “Lost & Found” dept. Come in or call and identify your items and we will be more than happy to reunite you with your possessions.
