Best Fly-Fishing Shop 

Grizzly Hackle

Readers' Pick

Grizzly Hackle was first born on Rock Creek River in the summer of 1988. Now that it’s next to Caras Park, it’s still close to the river, and everything about the store makes you thirsty to wade out and cast a line. The staff is friendly, which is a good thing because the art of fly-fishing can be technically intimidating. Say you read A River Runs Through It and thought you’d just grab a few wooly buggers and Zen out. Well, maybe you need a little advice—and you’ll get it here, sans snobby judgment. The store has recently expanded their women’s section, too, and plans on growing it more, into a part of the shop called Grizzly Hackle’s Better Half. They also don’t take for granted their line of work. Their Two Percent for the Rivers program is exactly what you think it is: two percent of every sale goes to protect local rivers and streams. Grizzly Hackle International Fishing: 215 W. Front St., 721-8996, grizzlyhackle.com
