Love this place! Anytime I go to see Tom it ends up being a high quality experience. These guys know there stuff, and are willing to spend a little time with you to pick there brains and give you the best guidance on equipment and techniques. I live on the West Branch of the AuSable, and new to the sport, but I feel like Tom and the guys are my X-factor. This is my second year going to the Two Fly and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Recently, my dog broke the tip off my rod and Tom was able to fix it up in no time and got me back in the river! While I was there, I geared up with a new rod and reel which Tom was able to set me up with the perfect set up for the types of fly fishing I’m into. I will be back anytime I need some equipment and or guidance from these very friendly and knowledgeable guys!!
