May 2024 Update

To my loyal & valued customers,

Welcome to our season. Bugs are popping, rivers are stocked, ponds got their allotment of fish and lots of people are telling tales of success.

The Nissitissit River was stocked twice. 1st time Rainbows, 2nd time Brookies. The Squannacook was stocked twice. 1st time Rainbows, 2nd time Browns.

I took a day on Tuesday and fished the Quinapoxet River. It was a magical day. Superb weather, lots and lots of nice sized rainbows, great streamside lunch, fine cigar and abundant sunshine. I could not have written a better script. My only regret was that I had to leave and come home.

In need of new waders, wading boots, a new net or an upgrade to your fly reel or fly rod? Come in to see the line-up of new Hardy Rods, Thomas & Thomas rods, Korkers boots and the all new Lamson reels. We’ve got you covered. The shop is fully stocked and some updated gear will add a new dimension to your fishing pleasure.

Want to go on a local trip for 1 -2 days? Grab a friend and come see me for help in planning your trip. I can put together all the details for you in 15 minutes and send you on your way to new water that will excite your senses. Take advantage of my 58+ years fishing hundreds and hundreds of local waterways. You will not be disappointed. The waters will be enticing, the fish will be plentiful, and the experience will be second to none.

Pat Perkins — In addition to building a superb bamboo rod is now doing restorations on all types of bamboo rods. If you have a bamboo road and it is in need of repair, please contact the shop for details.

Thank you & See you on the water,

Charlie Shadan
