Fly Fishing is our passion and we are THE full service dedicated fly shop serving the Tahoe, Eastern Sierra, northern Nevada and northern California areas. We have been nestled in Northern Nevada's Carson Valley since 1994.  The Valley is surrounded by the Eastern Sierra mountain range which provides an abundance of fantastic trout waters from high desert rivers to lofty alpine getaways.
