November 2019 Update


To my loyal & valued customers,

Looking for some “spooky” fish? How about giving the Nissitissit or Squannacook a look. The rivers in southeastern NH have all been stocked with OUTSIZE fish! They are the Lamprey, Cocheco, Isinglas, and Exeter rivers.

I’m heading to the Waloomsac River in Vermont on Monday or Tuesday to fish for wary browns and rainbows that have been in the water since May – they should be real “spooky”!

The waters are waiting, the fish are waiting – What are you waiting for?

Just back from a trip to New Mexico to fish the fabled San Juan River. This is a river you have to fish, sometime before you “hang up your spurs”. Wow, all that was there were big, angry fish. I hate it when that happens.

The shop is loaded with new items. There are large amounts of new waders and boots, volumes of new Croakies and sunglasses as well as fitovers for your prescription glasses. All sorts of new reels and accessories.

Don’t forget to respond to the inquiries that come at Christmas by saying ‘Get me a gift certificate from Evening Sun Fly Shop’. That way you can get what you want to enhance your fishing pleasure. The shop has a lot to offer.

I’d venture to say that it is as well-stocked as any fly shop you will enter. Come give us an opportunity to excel at what we try to do best – that is “Service your needs professionally, accurately with always you in mind”.

Remember, you don’t need a tee time to fish. Fish Hard, Fish Deep, Fish Often. See you on the water.  

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…


President George H.W. Bush pardoned the first turkey in 1989 after he noticed the 50-pound bird at his official Thanksgiving proclamation looked a little antsy. Every president has upheld the tradition to this day.
