The shop is located in the heart of one of the last great native trout fisheries, for sea-run cutthroat on the Puget Sound and will be providing classes on casting, fishing local waters and tying, as well as guided trips. As of right now the shop is open for limited hours, Sunday-Friday 3pm-6pm and 7am-5pm on Saturdays. It is located in downtown Gig Harbor at 3100 Harboview Dr., between Spiro's and the Tides Tavern. We will be holding a grand opening party on April 18th and will be having events all day long, including tying demos, a chance to cast Scott and Echo rods, a raffle and much much more. If you are in the area, be sure to stop by and say hello!
And more tying materials
While the fly shop has been keeping me busy I have still found some time to fish and scout out new locations. Last week my friend Ryan and I headed out to the Hood Canal to do a little hiking and check out how the chum fry migration is proceeding. The morning was beautiful, but very cold at the estuary that we visited but we spotted some school of juvenile chum salmon as well as some cutthroat intercepting them. It looks like over the next few weeks fishing should really be heating up for coastal cutthroat feeding on juvenile salmon off of the creek mouths.
