    All of us Whatcom County fly fishers are super excited to have our own fly shop now open in Bellingham! The Confluence Fly Shop is located down near the harbor in the Harbor Mall across from LFS and also kind of across from the Web Locker (you can get your burgers along with fly stuff!) Two of my friends and fishing buddies, Ed Megill and Scott Willison have opened the shop and not only are they super knowledgeable fly fishers and guides, but they are both stellar guys! I was lucky enough to spend 3 days with them along with my 2 sons and 2 son in laws floating the Yakima last summer. (Did I mention their riverside meals are exceptional!) I know I will no longer be using mail order for any of my fly gear, and we all need to support these guys so we can always have this resource available to us! Rick

    Ed and Scott are great guys and I'm beyond stoked that they got the shop up and running. After all the news of shops closing, isn't it cool to hear about one opening?

    A fly store in Bellingham, how cool is that?

    Bellingham crew, if we want this to work we've got to do our part. Buy local.

    That was one of the thing I liked about H&H when it was open, they had a wish book @ the front desk and your loved ones could go in and get you what you wanted, no quess work involved.

    You guy's have picked a great location, right between Bellingham's two destination trout streams!:p Just kidding.
    I can walk to your store in about 3 minutes from work.:D I'm stoked to check out your store and meet you.
    I still see Jerry from the old H&H store at Albertsons once in a while.

    Good Luck!

    We in bellingham finally have an outlet for our sickness. It was so nice not to having to drive to Seattle to get a reel choices and great advise.
    Can't wait to cast the new Meiser 5/6 switch and line they set me up with.

    Thanks you Scott and Ed for stepping up and providing us with medicine we need.

    I heard Scott's pretty cool, but I'm not sure about that Ed guy.
    Hey do you guys have 5x tippet and 540 compact Skagit heads?
