New Fly Shop In Springfield

Recommended Posts

I also forgot to mention. When I was in there the owner said they were thinking about renting out rods for people who wanted to try fly fishing, and should they want to buy it they will credit the rent price to the purchase of the rod if they choose to.

I think this is absolutely awesome, and may help get more people into the sport. Can't say enough good things about them, i need to find something to tie so can go back in there..

I need some hooks now that I think of it.

I and Mrs. BilletHead stopped by the new shop today. Like you all have said it is a nice place. We have bought stuff there from the last two owners and will deal here when we need things. We all need a shop like this. Support and use this place.

Visited the shop yesterday when I was in town visiting my brother, Frank. Nice shop and well-stocked. Very nice guys working there. Bought some fly-tying stuff and a couple hats and they even threw in free t-shirts and stickers. Talked with them a bit and they showed some cool big streamers they tied and caught some decent sized muskies with out at Fellows Lake. Highly recommend this shop to anyone in the area. To heck with BP!!!

New shop looks good, went in for a bit today, very nice layout, stocked very well, lots of sage rods, and they

had a good asst. of reels and fly lines, and the walls were full of fly tying materials, everybody needs to support

your local fly shop, so when you need something they will be there to help you.

Muskies at Fellows Lake??? On flies??? I don't believe that for one second, the only way to catch those things is with a 1/124 oz hot pink marabou jig tied on to 80lb Berkley Fireline............

Hey all….thanks for both the kind words in this thread and the patronage from those coming in the store since we’ve opened our doors. It’s taken us a tad longer to open than originally planned because of the remodel, so, thank you for the patience.

We have a bunch of names on our email list and will eventually be sending out a monthly newsletter with our sales items, fishing reports, etc., etc….until then, I just wanted to let everyone know our business hours are from 9am - 6:30pm Monday through Saturday and 10:00 am - 4:00 pm on Sunday. Those hours are relevant through Christmas at which time we’ll be closed on either Sunday or Monday (maybe both…we have to have a day or two to fish).

Our flyrod selection is massive. Come in a wiggle one around or go out to our custom asphalt pond and cast at Fin and Feather’s John Mooney‘s Chevy Suburban. Our Sage inventory includes The One, Circa, TCX, VXP, Response and Approach. Scott lineup includes S4’s, A4’s and a sweet little fiberglass F2 4weight. Other rods include Hardy Zenith, Greys Streamflex, a large selection of TFO BVK, Professional II, Signature II and Bluewater series, Redington Combos and a few St. Croix’s. We are also doing a gear exchange…old for new.

Our reel selection is very similar to our rod selection, in that, we’ve tried to cover all levels…...Tibor, Abel, Galvan, Ross, Hardy, Grey’s, and Redingtons. On the lower end, Redington’s are priced at $39.95 and the new Grey’s cassette reels are pretty sweet with a reel and three cassettes starting at $85. And, on the upper end, the Billy Pate Tarpon reels are not only beautiful, they will be fully functional after the zombie apocalypse.

We’ve also expanded the tying materials. We are culling out the non sellers and getting in new and improved selections of materials. Give me a few months to get the material section dialed in, so, if we don’t carry an item you use, let me know and I’ll get it included in our next order.

Other brands we carry include:

Renzetti and Terra vises priced from $15 and up.

Simms waders, boots, jackets, waist packs, flasks, bottle openers, etc. Korkers boots. Redington Waders and boots.

A big selection of Filson items.

Fishpond bags, hip packs, chest packs, and sling bags.

Measure nets up to the Guide model.

Smith Optics.

Surefire lights.

Havalon Knives.

Dr. Slick.

Alpen Binoculars priced at half off MSRP….get them while they last because they more than likely won’t be back when they’re gone.

Orvis endorsed artist of the year Diane Michelin artwork including original works and prints.

Derek De Young stickers, mugs, pilsner glasses, mouse pads, coasters, etc.

 

And, perhaps the coolest items in the shop are the Plateau Fly Shop stickers, T Shirts, hoodies, hats, long sleeve T shirts, and sweatshirts. There’s a free T-Shirt with a $20 purchase until the shirts run out and a free sticker with a $10 purchase….one t-shirt or sticker per customer.

We also have a bargain bin that is getting added to daily….a bunch of Frog Hair leader and tippet is going in tomorrow…

We’ll have tying classes starting after the first of the year. Tuesday nights @ 7:00 pm. Vises, bobbin and scissors required. We’ll provide the materials for the specific flies during the session. I’ll have firm dates and types of flies covered next month.

And, oh yeah, we’re going to have a grand opening! Date is Saturday, December 15th. We’ll have hourly door prizes from 12 - 6 pm….the prizes have yet to be determined but there will either be a rod or a reel included in the prizes. Discounts in the shop include 15% off all wearables (waders, boots, etc.). We’ll also grill some food, have finger foods, soft drinks, water, and a cooler full of ice ready for ancillary beverages of your choice.

Once again, thanks for all the support and thank you Phil for letting me post on your site.

-Jim
