The flies we sell are all tied right here in the shop by myself, no imports. Some of the flies are the tried and true patterns that have proven themselves through the years. Others are my own patterns that I have developed at the vise and tested on our rivers and streams. I also add new flies that are brought to my attention by other local fishermen and folks from away that show me some great patterns.
WHEN PURCHASING FLIES ON THE WEBSITE BE SURE TO INCLUDE ( COLOR AND SIZE )
Demand for custom tied flies has increased and has become an important part of this shop. If you have a favorite pattern that you can't find or have an idea for a pattern give me call or email and I'll see what I can do.
I am a Licensed New Hampshire Fishing Guide and hold a Comrmercial Boat Operators license. I am also trained through SOLO in Wilderness First Aid and CPR. The guiding is offered on our local waters and runs from mid May to mid October. There is a good variety of options for the fly fisher in this part of New Hampshire. I focus on the small streams and ponds for trout and the Androscoggin River for both Trout and Smallmouth Bass. The Smallmouth fishing on the Pontook section is one of our best kept secrets! Please check out the guiding options and rates, then get in touch with me and we'll go from there.
Thanks for shopping at Dans Fly Shop, see you on the water!
