It’s spring again, as we watch winter slowly release its grip. With spring comes a new batch of clothes, boats, packs etc. This spring we are excited to offer a whole new department, fly fishing! We have assembled some of the best names in the business, R.L. Winston, Temple Fork Outfitters, Patagonia, Ross, Lamson, and Scientific Anglers to name a few.

For those who have not been in for a while we converted the downstairs coffee shop into a full service fly shop. We will be offering fly fishing rentals as well as retail sales, so if you’ve always been curious here’s your chance to try it with little investment.

For our grand opening we will be offering a number of events, Wednesday night at 6:00 PM is the kick off. We’ll be here with food and drinks (and maybe a few fish stories as well.) We will also have a rope wrapping demonstration for those interested in the process. Thursday night at 7:00PM we will have a hard boat/fiberglass repair workshop, so if you wanted to know how to fix your drift boat or glass canoe this is the time to learn. Friday at 7:00PM we will be holding a raft repair workshop to teach you how to repair Hypalon and PVC rafts.

Saturday will be our 9th annual Boat Swap, an event for sellers and buyers. Looking to sell? bring your boat, or boating accessories in between 9-11 set your price and we’ll do the rest. You may choose cash (80%) or take 110% in store credit. Folks looking to buy may do so from 12-3. We will have industry reps on hand to answer questions and give casting lessons.

As part of the opening we wanted to give back to the community a little as well. We will be holding a raffle for a few items, like a Winston and TFO rod, a pair of Patagonia Waders, and more from NRS and AIRE. ALL proceeds from this raffle will go to the Clark Fork Coalition. We will also have the Westslope Trout Unlimited folks selling burgers and dogs with those proceeds going to them.

Come on down and help us celebrate spring and a new direction!
