November 2018 Update

To my loyal & valued customers,

The frost is on the pumpkins and all the mums have replaced our summer flowers. Those are sure harbingers of what is to come.

Both area rivers, the Nissitissit, and the Squannacook have plenty of fish in the water. I had 5 clients out on different days last week across both rivers and all hooked into and landed fish every day.

On Tuesday 10/23 I fished the Deerfield River and landed 5 fish. After enjoying Game 1 and leaving early the next day I proceeded to the Swift River in Belchertown.

I easily hooked 12-15 fish in about a 3-hour stretch and landed 7 or 8. The fish were huge, some were at least 2 1/2 – 3 lbs. and real hefty!

It was a real nice 2-day respite from the daily rigors of life.

Get yourself motivated, pack your car and take in the Swift or the Deerfield next week if you don’t mind the travel.

Call the shop for details on where to fish. If you are inclined to stay local, call and I will put you in the correct spots to be successful on either river.

As the season winds down around here don’t forget to look at the possibility of fishing the 4 rivers in Southeastern NH that are still open. All four rivers have been stocked handsomely by the Three Rivers Stocking Association. They are the Lamprey, Cocheco, Isinglas, and Exeter rivers.

That group raised many thousands of dollars at their recent auction/banquet and spent lots of $ on purchasing fish and spreading them throughout all the rivers. Fish from 11″ – 18″ were stocked.

Dress warm, fill the thermos with hot coffee, pack your car and head on up to these spots. Call the shop for details on where to go. Work will always be there when you get back.

Find new waters and you will enhance your fondness for fly fishing many times over. You’ll meet like-minded people, provide yourself with a stress-free atmosphere and return energized to face life’s curveballs the next day.

Only 2 months remain for 2018’s Rewards Program at the shop. Gather your receipts, total them up and come in to redeem your free items. A small purchase can put you over the top in some category and make it really worth your while.

The shop rewards program is the most lucrative rewards program in the industry. Nothing compares to getting almost 30% in free items if you hit Category 3 or 4.

The shop is loaded with new waders, wading boots, rods, reels and fly lines for you to take a look at. Come in and browse what’s available for you to upgrade some items in your gear.

As the holidays approach and you are asked what it is you might like for a gift(s), don’t forget to offer up that we carry gift certificates for all occasions. With a certificate in hand, you can choose exactly what you want to replace or upgrade a piece of equipment.

Beginners fly tying classes are sold out already. If you are interested in learning to tie, call the shop for details on the next set of lessons beginning in Jan 2019.

Thanks to all for your patronage and continued loyalty to my shop.

Thank you & See you on the water,

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.
