Not sure of the gear you will need

43 years ago I walked into The Tackle Shop for the first time and began my love affair with the Madison River. The river fishes today as good or better than it ever did and the service at The Tackle Shop has never been better. John, I thank you for making my Madison River experience beyond my expectations every year. See you this summer and every summer in the future.
John and his crew at The Tackle Shop are not only extremely knowledgeable about
the fishing in the area, they're also just a great bunch of people who are
genuinely happy to share their expertise while making friends and connections.
The store has an excellent selection of gear, and it's one of the few places
where I can find quality clothing made with fly fishing women in mind

This leaves all involved drained physically and mentally right when the bulk of the season is still in front of us. Here are 5 reasons to recharge and heal up from the after salmon fly blues.
