October 2019 Update


To my loyal & valued customers,

Pumpkins, Mums, cooler temps, and diminished humidity – all signs that fall is here. Fishing in our area rivers should pick up as the fall stocking is underway. The Nissitissit River was stocked on 9/27/19 with brows and rainbows and the Squannacook will not be far behind.

Are your waders ready to be worn? Are you wading boots hurting your feet? Does your net have holes in it that shouldn’t be there? These are signs to you that it may be time for a visit to the Evening Sun Fly Shop.

Come in and see the line up of impressive new Korkers boots, rubber nets, and Redington waders. While we are on the subject of waders, select Redington waders Sonic Pro and Sonic Pro HD are $100.00 off the list price as I make room for new styles.

Beginner fly tying classes are starting the 1st week of November. Call or e-mail the shop for details.

Grab a day real soon and come out and enjoy a day on the river. It will be “a battery charger” for your soul. Now is time to make the resolution that it is just as easy to say yes as to say no to a day on the water.

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.

Get your map of the local rivers – the Squannacook & Nissitissit that I created in the store. 700+ copies have already sold to date. These maps will make great gifts.

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 a 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.
