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, Temple Fork Outfitters and Echo rods. We are proud to sell Ross, Hardy, Waterworks/Lamson and Hatch reels. Our fly lines include: Rio, Air Flow, Scientific Anglers and Wulff. Other well known brands include: Fishpond, Loon, Dr. Slick and Montana Fly. We have a large selection of Simms waders and boots. 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, 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

    I have been writing this column for over twelve years. Back when I first started I figured that it might be good for a couple of years and then I would run out of ideas. Let’s face it the column is about fishing and fishing is a fairly simple pastime. In reality nothing could be further from the truth and if you are a fisherman you know why. There are those times, however, that when I set down to write I haven’t a clue what I am going to say. I never know where the inspiration for a column will come from. Most of my ideas come from an actual fishing experience; sometimes a day or two before I write the article. A lot of ideas come from reading articles in fishing magazines or on the many fishing message boards and blogs on the Internet and there are times I just want to promote some event or cause. This morning was one of those days where I was staring at a blank computer page and then the UPS driver showed up at the door with the new Gray’s Sporting Journal and I had an aha moment.
