To my loyal & valued customers,
Labor Day is upon us with hopefully the start of cooler temps. This has been a long stretch of heat and humidity. We should be getting to the “other side of it.”
In the deeper pools of the Nissitissit and Squannacook there is the possibility of holdover fish. As the temperatures cool, I’m sure our die-hard anglers will start to venture out and try to fool these wary competitors.
By the end of September or the first week of October, the area rivers of the Nissitissit, Squannacook and Millers River(s) will have received their full stocking setting us up for a fruitful fall season.
The Swift River has been fishing well since the beginning of July.
The Deerfield has held up well as it is a tailwater and the frequent rains of August augmented the fishing on the river.
Plan your fall excursion(s) now before your calendar fills up with interruptions. NH, Maine, and Vermont also make for great trips in the fall. Come into the shop for directions to places up north. I have fished some of these waters for over 50 years.
I have filled the shop with new rods, waders and wading boots from Redington. Come in to see the lineup of items that will help you improve on some outdated, worn out or dysfunctional gear that you’ve wanted to change.
Don’t forget about the store’s Rewards Program that will earn you lots of FREE items.
The Evening Sun Fly Shop will be closed from Sept. 9th thru 15th as I head out west to Colorado and New Mexico to hopefully gives lots of fish some orthodontics work!! I’ve emailed them and told ’em that I was on the way with a band of merry men – 7 in all! The fish won’t have a chance as we plan on “surrounding them”.
That’s all for now. See you back at the shop on 9/16/18.
Thank you & See you on the water,
Three Rivers Stocking Annual Banquet
The Three Rivers Stocking Group will be holding their annual fundraising banquet on 9/10/18. Try to attend as there will be lots of great items for reasonable prices as well as a fine dinner that accompanies the festivities. Check out their website for details.
This group is responsible for stocking the Lamprey, Cocheco, Isinglas and Exeter Rivers in southeast NH. Their efforts allow us to fish these rivers during the fall and early winter. Please support their fundraising efforts by attending and having a fine meal as well as garnering some new items. This group deserves all of our support.

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 Purchasing||Evening Sun Purchasing|
|Can’t see or touch product||See, touch and feel before you buy|
|Often you pay for freight/shipping||No freight/shipping charges|
|No custom fitting on waders or boots, sunglasses or any item where sizing is critical||Try it on before you buy it. Sizing is critical to your purchase|

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!!
