May 2020 Update

To my loyal & valued customers,

Would someone please stop the Pandemic Pandemonium ride we are on. I want to get off!! These certainly are strange times during our lives’ journey on Earth. Who would have ever thought that you could go to a bank or credit union with a mask on and it would be OK?? Who would have ever thought that toilet paper could be exchanged for your firstborn?? Could you imagine a virus shutting down the WORLD??

Well, here we are with more questions and very few answers. My hope is that all of you and your families and friends are safe, healthy, and eagerly awaiting our escape from this overwhelming, devastating virus. I hope this is a time where you and your family are bonding closer and closer as we await our next set of directions to help stop the spread. My family and I wish all of you only the BEST.

Now to the task at hand, I am seeing clients “curbside” at the shop and intend to fill all your needs. The Fly Shop is “open” for your business but in a very different way. Normal hours have been suspended but please call me at (978) 758-1410 – my cell number or the shop #(978) 433-4910 and I will address your needs right away.

Several clients have called and have generously placed orders with me. I have managed to meet everyone’s needs in a somewhat unconventional way. If I don’t have what you need, I will order it and get it to you in a timely fashion.

The Temptation is to order over the internet in many cases, but I can assure you that my level of service and attention to detail on your behalf will outweigh the “point and click” option. I want to be here when we come out of this and with your help, I can be.

Thank you to all for your recent orders and to those who may be thinking of using the shop in the coming weeks/months.

I have fished at least 8-10 times during this upheaval of our lives. Feel free to call and I will give you some ideas on where to wet a line. From Walden Pond to the private club I belong to in Nashua, I have found fish everywhere.

The Nissitissit and Squannacook Rivers are great resources locally. NH is beginning to stock as well. I just got a report yesterday the Nissitissit was stocked in NH. Call me for details. The Swift and the Westfield Rivers have fish to chase.

Fishing is Perfect for Practicing Physical Distancing – How neat is that – Forced Etiquette!!! Bring it on. 

By the way, I am guiding clients on a limited basis. Please call if you want to schedule a trip with me and improve your knowledge and geography on the area rivers.

Thank you for your support.

ESFS Sale and New Merchandise

All Hardy rods and reels are being discounted deeply to make room for the new models coming in late summer. Call me for a Huge Discount on any of these remaining items. I have Hardy’s approval to do this. Their rods and reels are SUPERB! I own at least 6 of them and fish with them regularly.

Thomas & Thomas Rods are in. I am now a full catalog resource for all Thomas & Thomas Rods made right here in Massachusetts. They are individually handcrafted piece of excellence. Come give them a look-see if you are in the market for an “instrument of perfection”.

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
Often you pay for freight/shippingNo freight/shipping charges
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!!

Upcoming Events

All classes/seminars/schools have been postponed for now. If anyone who signed up for one wants your money back, please feel free to reach out to me. I am intending to run the events at a later date.

So you think you know everything?

The ESFS will be running every month interesting factoids…

May 4 – Star Wars Day May the fourth be with you!!
