Friends & Resources

Taylor Creek Fly Shop

My summertime home for all things Roaring Fork Valley fly fishing.

Eastern Fly Outfitters

My source for everything East Tennessee.  Best equipped shop in the area, and very hospitable help.

Folly’s End Campground

My camp of choice in Erie, Pennsylvania. Great fly shop and fly tying supplies. Very knowledgeable bunch, some of the “old guard” of Erie fly fishing.

West Branch Angler Resort

The premier fly shop serving the Delaware system, and my new home in the spring. Wonderful accommodations, fine food and dining on the banks of the West Branch.

The Contented Angler

Awesome shop in a garage/basement.  Owners are legends in the fly fishing industry. Check it out if you’re ever near Pittsburgh.

Streams of Dreams

The infamous Huff father/son team. Atlantic Salmon trips on the Gaspe Pennisula. Incredible source for impossible to find fly tying materials. Only the best goes through this place. Burkheimer spey rods, vintage reels, bamboo, stuff you never see anywhere else.

Shannon’s Fly Shop

On the banks of a true Jersey gem, the South Branch of the Raritan River. Riverkeepers of the Ken Lockwood Gorge, their efforts to maintain what I feel is the most special inland area of New Jersey deserve a visit at the very least. Excellent fishing reports.

Pennsylvania Steelhead Association

If you fish for steelhead in Lake Erie, or on its tributaries, then you should support these guys with a membership and through donations. They are our only voice.

Little Juniata River Association

Maintained by Bill Anderson, perhaps the quintessential riverkeeper of all time. This group is more or less the only reason why there is so much public access on the Little J.

Project Healing Waters

Our Eastern chapter is run by good buddy Skip Hughes. A very effective therapeutic program where volunteers take wounded veterans fishing.

Friends of the Upper Delaware

Local watchdog group who deals with the politics of water management in hopes of securing a good future for the Delaware River Watershed.

Roaring Fork Conservancy

If you have ever fished anywhere in the Roaring Fork Valley, then you owe these people a big thanks. Water quality issues, minimum stream flows, you name it, they watch over it.

Cowboy Drifters

Casper, Wyoming’s premier guide service on the North Platte River. Kevin Sullivan’s springtime home.
