World-class fly fishing shop, guides right here in Santa Fe.
Mouthwatering selection of rods, reels, flies, waders, vests, hats and every other bit of gear you can imagine -- and some I never imagined. Staff is not at all snooty -- you definitely don't have to be an expert to get help here, like some places. The classes range from absolute beginner to expert, and the guides are terrific. They know just about every inch of New Mexico's wild rivers, and don't laugh (too hard) every time you (okay, I) snag my line on myself. Actually, it took them only a few minutes to turn me into a decent caster, although I'm having more trouble with tying my own flies. But why bother, when they have such a great selection? Next up: one of Reel Life's fishing adventures to some exotic corner of the world.
