Little Lehigh Fly Shop

The LL Fly Shop has closed. Apparently being flooded several times this year plus less than robust business was why Dave decided to give it up. Nice man, I wish him well.

Dave was a great guy , unfortunately I have never seen a river suffer so much over the last 25yrs I just hope one day I can say it was the best come back story I ever saw a river have .

Not worth the trip anymore in my opinion.

Going back many years, I remember a guy named Rod who used to own the shop. If I recall, he was an investment banker or something like that? He would often be in there with the wood stove going. I guess he sold it to this other fellow Dave? I'm out of the loop :lol:

He moved out to Colorado after he sold the shop to Dave if I remember correctly. Lately I've been getting emails from him offering fly tying classes but I don't know from where.

Rod is alive and well. I get his emails offering speaking to my TU chapter fairly often. I do know he and his wife went on a big travel adventure once he sold the shop several years back.
