Fly shop in Terrace

Hi,

I googled the tittle of this thread and it seems that the only tackle shops in Terrace are the Fish Tales and the Home Hardware. Is there any fly shop more specialized in the area? I wonder if they have a good selection of spey flies and hackles and even some double handed rods in case I need to buy a new one...

Thanks!

fly shops Terrace area

In my experience, between Fish Tales, Misty River, and Northwest Sportsman in Terrace, and Home Hardware in Kitimat, you should be able to cover pretty well anything you need. Fish Tales has locally tied flies, an excellent tying material and hook selection, T material by the foot, Simms products, etc.
Sage, Loomis,and local builds on an Austrian (?) blank for rods, lots of Rio and Airflo lines and tips are available in the local stores.
Prices are pretty competitive in Terrace as well (Fishing tackle, if not groceries and gas!)

Enjoy your trip.

CR.

There aren't any fly (only) shops in Terrace, which too be honest kinda sucks. I guess if I had to go somewhere it would be Fish Tales but its really just a general fishing store in my opinion - not a fly shop.

On a side note, I recently had the chance to pop into Waters West in Port Angeles (a real fly shop) after several recommendations from other members. By far the best selection of steelhead fly tying materials I have ever seen in any store. Too bad Terrace didn't have something the same.

Don't forget Oscars in Smithers if you are driving thru.. Be warned that some of the more popular flies sell out fast, while they do carry them, there might not be any stock..

Flyexplorer. The terrace shops have plenty of steelhead bugs, as does Oscars. However, be ready to pay a pretty penny for them, specially in prime season. The flies sell out quick, but try and find a floating poly leader in mid september up there! Might as well be looking for a 40lb steely
