Sad Day for Oregon Fly Fishing

Rich and I back in 2004.















I received sad news the other day when I heard that Creekside Fly Fishing in Salem, Oregon is closing their doors. Rich Younger whom I have known for many years will be closing his doors at the end of the month after operating his shop for sixteen years. Rich will continue to be a mentor fly fishers throughout the Northwest and will continue his guide service, single hand casting lessons and book fly fishing gatherings at private lakes. As one of the premier fly tiers in the Pacific Northwest, I also hope that Rich continues to offer fly tying classes and help those who want to learn how to tie classic Atlantic Salmon and Steelhead flies. 

Creekside currently has some great deals going on right now and his doors will be open through November 30th. Please stop by and thank Rich and Kathy Youngers for everything they have done for our small community of fly fishers. Creekside will be missed.

That's a really sad news! years ago, I bought materials and a reel from the Creekside, it was a very nice shop. Hope everything will work out for them.
