    FLY SHOP SERIES - Fly Tyers Heaven

    I never go any where near PA without my TROUT STREAMS OF PENNSYLVANIA by Dwight Landis.

    Tucked away inside those pages I always keep an extra copy of Mid Atlantic Fly Fishing Guide.





    Fly shops advertise it in and if I am in the area of one of those shops I like to stop in.

    Now Fly Tyers Heaven is sorta out of the way ... but it is well worth the side trip.





    It is located in Sunbury, PA on a suburban street.





    Back of some building





    One flight up





    You gotta ring the door bell.

    Now I have to admit, when I saw the sign to ring the bell, for the 17th time
    in the past half hour I asked myself, "What am I doing?"





    A minute later Jerry the owner opened the door and I stepped into HEAVEN.





    In his ad he states, "ONE OF THE LARGEST SELECTIONS OF TYING MATERIALS IN THE MID ATLANTIC REGION"


    That is an understatement !!!





    His place is so packed with fly tying materials I wouldn't even know where begin.

    So here it is... take a good look because there is so much materials...

    I would be writing for a few days to describe it all.








    He gives fly tying lessons during the winter months














    Thread .... I was standing there trying to think of what I am out of ...






























































    To be sure I'll be back with a list !

    Look at the merchandise in that shop.
    One could spend hours in there.
    The owner of that shop obviously loves everything that deals with the fly.

    Thanks,

    BRK TRT: my photos don't even come close to doing that shop justice.

    It is just so over whelming with the quantity, but the quality as well.

    Thanks for that. My father has been in Giesinger hospital for the past month and a half. Now when i visit i can make a little side trip and pick up something that I "need"

    To look good is to fish good

    I have gone back and looked at my post, and each and everytime I see things that I hadn't noticed he had in the shop.

    When you first walk you really do become over whelmed with the shear volume of materials.

    The shop is very well lit and the shop walls just explode with all the colours.
