    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?

    Absolutely Ken. We have both. I know that 540 Skagit compact and 5x are the cornerstones of your chironomid rig. Thanks to all who've come by so far and to those of you we hope to meet.

    Ed's probably cooler than I am. ;)

    Great news, once Scott C. closed up H&H, I've been at a loss. Will check out the new shop next week when I'm back in town.

    I just got back from there, where some of the members of the 4th Corner Fly Fishers were schmoozing. I picked up a Skagit head, just what I was looking for. It's the Confluence Fly Shop, in Suite 9, 2620 No. Harbor Loop Drive. Phone: (360)224-4043. Tuesday - Saturday, 11-6 (open to 7 p.m. on Thursday). They're probably going to be a WFF sponsor.

    With all the schmoozing going on, I wonder if Scott and Ed will ever get all the fly bins stocked! It is a great place to hang out with fellow fly fishers!

    Stopped by the new shop today. Technically they're closed on Mondays, but Ed was inside and he welcomed me right in. We talked for awhile; he's got a great amount of knowledge and enthusiasm for wild fish, conservation and fly fishing in general. I was happy to pick up a new reel I've had my eyes on lately while I was there, and I plan to keep shopping there in the future. Congratulations Ed and Scott, and THANK YOU for opening a quality shop in Bellingham!

    I guess "Bellingham Fly Fishing Shop" downtown c. 1988 - 1991 is long forgotten. Lost in Whatcom County angling history with characters like Dick Van Demark, Ralph Wahl and Harold Jellison. Those were the good old pre-RRT it days. I wish the new brick & mortar shop success in our sit-at-home-in-your underwear and order on-line society.
