I am from Minnesota, and this fly shop beats the stores near me and that I've been to out of state (Montana, Wisconsin, Canada etc..) Brian, the owner of this shop, is the kindest and most humorous man I have met. He is very intelligent when it comes to fly fishing and very open with his knowledge! His prices cannot be beat for the quality and care he provides to his customers! If I can rate higher I would. 10 out of 10! Bravo Brian!
