Great fly fishing guides
A friend suggested the Tackle Shop for a guide and we were really pleased. Booking it was a breeze, and we bought our fishing license at the shop which made the whole thing very easy. The shop has a nice selection and is a lot nicer than some of the tackle shops I’ve seen. John was our guide and he was excellent. I’m a bit of a novice but my hubby is pretty good. John was able to easily adapt to help both us immensely. I highly recommend it.
