I post my fishing reports and you can view them for current conditions
and from the last 10 years. This will give you pictures and information
about many of the rivers in New England and how they fish throughout
the season. My blog is regularly updated with reports and
We highly recommend some of the best fly shops in New England which
specialize in friendly, personal service and local knowledge:
Morse Sporting Goods
is located in Hillsborough, NH, just a cast away from the beautiful
Contoocook River. Jim and Walter Morse and their staff provide
friendly service and expert local advice. They are a full-service
outdoor store, with hunting, archery and fishing getting equal
billing, depending on the season. Whether you need a license
and a few local-favorite flies, or a complete fly fishing outfit,
you will not find friendlier more helpful service anywhere.
North Country Angler
When you're in North Conway stop by the North Country Angler
a fully stocked shop. Janet and Bill have over thirty years of
experience in the Valley and are always willing to share information
on hatches as well as how the local rivers are fishing. Bill's
monthly column in the New Hampshire Outdoor Gazette always makes
for great reading. Give Bill and Janet Thompson our best wishes
when you stop by.
Post in Laconia, HQ of the NH Lakes Region, is a piece of
New Hampshire's fly fishing history on the shores of Lake Opechee.
Owner Jim Makris has a great selection of equipment and the perfect
spot to try casting one of the fine selection of rods from his
50 foot dock with a chance for rainbows, browns and salmon.
LL Cotes and Percy's
Flies in Errol, NH, our "home away from home," are
must-visit stops in the North Country. More than once they
have come through with fly fishing gear, gadgets and flies that
replenish our supplies when the hatch is on. Stop in to
see the white moose, even if you don't need any flies!
Stone River Outfitters
in Bedford, NH is an easy five-minute detour off route 3 or I-93
on your way from Greater Boston to points north in NH and VT.
Well-stocked with quality gear, it also a good place to get some
fly tying tips.
is in the western suburbs of Boston in Concord, MA. They
are truly a full service fly shop that is well-stocked with fly
fishing gear and tying materials. Owner Andy Bonzagni and
Manager Dave Armstrong are friendly, knowledgeable and will
go out of their way to point you in the right direction.
And you can't go wrong with their trips to the best fly fishing
destinations in the world.
