Welcome to the Shop


Welcome to the North Country Angler, “The Biggest Little Fly Shop in New Hampshire”. We are located in North Conway, New Hampshire, in the shadow of Mount Washington. The Saco and Ellis Rivers, two of the best fly fishing rivers in the East, are a short cast from our door step. The North Country Angler has been in the “Valley” for over forty years. We are a full service fly shop offering quality fly fishing gear and guiding. In addition to being a licensed Orvis dealer we stock a large selection of other quality name brands. We are authorized dealers for Scott, and Temple Fork Outfitters rods. We are proud to sell Ross, Hardy, Waterworks/Lamson and Hatch reels. Our fly lines include: Air Flow, Cortland, Scientific Anglers and Wulff. Other well known brands include: Fishpond, Loon, Dr. Slick and Montana Fly. Last season we added Simms waders and boots to our product line. With over 700 patterns we have one of the largest selections of flies in New Hampshire. Our fly tying selection is the best in the North Country.  HMH, Regal, Peak, Regal vices and tools, Wapsi, Spirit River, Hairline and Whitting to name only a few of the brands we carry. Although we try to post up to date stream reports, in season, on this site please do not hesitate to call us for up to the minute fishing information. All of our staff are licensed New Hampshire fishing guides and stand ready to answer your questions on local conditions as well as any question you may have on equipment. Thank you for visiting our web site and when in the “Valley” please visit us at the shop.

Invasive Species can ruin the environment and cost us billions of dollars. It's up to each of us to take action to protect our waters from being invaded. Fortunately, the best thing we can do is very easy - we must make sure that we are as clean as possible when we move between waters. Be A Clean Angler: Inspect - Clean - Dry

Save the Saco
by Bill Thompson

It is encouraging that the Conway Selectmen have recently decided to take a serious look at some of the problems confronting the Saco River. Special thanks to the members of Saco Valley Anglers Trout Unlimited who brought the matter to the attention of the Selectmen and started the conversation. The Saco has had a problem with misuse for some time and it has progressively gotten worse over the last few years.

New Helios 2



The Helios 2 is a featherlight war club that defies the laws of physics and has the backbone of an I-beam. Lighter in hand and 20% stronger than any rod we've ever developed, it transitions energy directly from your brain to the fly and casts with the precision of a laser pointer. Made by hand in our Vermont rod shop, it's a fly rod built by anglers who fish their way home from work, anglers with sunglasses-shaped tan lines, anglers who tie blood knots in their sleep.

Best in Class, as judged by the Gear Institute, 2012; Recipient of an Editor's Choice Award from Fly Fusion magazine, 2012; Winner of Fly Fisherman magazine's Best New Rod Series award, 2013; Winner of Men's Journal Gear of the Year Award, 2012; Winner of American Angler's Gear of the Year Award as one of the best new fly-fishing products chosen by the magazine's editorial staff.
