It’s not always about the fishing. But, even when it’s not, it is not difficult to find some way of satisfying the interest.
At the time of writing this post I’m in Los Angeles with my wife to be with our daughter who has just given birth to our first grand daughter after six grandsons between our three children – a special occasion indeed welcoming beautiful, little Stella Madison into our clan. By the way I had nothing to do with the name Madison, but quietly pleased of the connection to a river that is frequently rated as one of the best wild trout rivers of North America and most consistent in Montana for trophy fish and count numbers.
And, despite the fact that the small streams within reach are down to a mere trickle as the severe drought persist, the next best thing to standing in a stream waving a stick, is browsing through a well stocked fly fishing store. A google search revealed one that I’d heard of in the past, but never really taken too much notice of if truth be told. So it was that today we took a 45 minute drive from Carthay Square, West Hollywood to Fullerton to the Bob Marriott’s Fly Fishing Store.
The drive was well worth it and I have to say it is one of the nicest fly fishing stores I have had the pleasure of browsing around, well more than just browsing because it included a few purchases as is so typical of flyfishers of those ‘have-to-have’ items whether you need them or not! But, let me say this about the store, it is unpretentious in appearance, the staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful, and very well stocked in all departments – everything to enjoy about a fly fishing store.

So if you are ever in the Los Angeles area and fly fishing is your thing, I can highly recommend a visit to Bob Marriott’s Fly Fishing Store.
Hats off to a great Fly Fishing Store
Stella Madison’s first visit to a fly fishing store – look at that dreamy smile!
