The History of Dan’s Fly Shop
Tying flies since 1959
Dan started tying flies in 1959 while helping his parents build Pleasant View Resort. Soon he was catching fish on his own flies while tramping all the streams he could find. He was hooked for life. It didn’t take much persuasion for resort guests to get him to take them along on his fishing excursions.
Dan’s Fly Shop which had its beginning at Pleasant View Resort in 1959, moved to its present location in 1984. Here it has seen twenty-five fun filled summers with many happy fishermen and enough fishing tales to fill a book. It has seen snowy winters and slushy springs and glorious falls.
When you find your way back to Lake City each summer, you can expect to find everything you need to make your fly fishing experiences a success. We endeavor to keep every item on hand that you have needed and used in years gone by plus you will find new and innovative tools such as the Magnetic Tippet Threader and the Mosquito Annoyer.
We have also added some gift items including Tiffany’s Tea Shelf featuring Republic of Tea selections, Dan’s own aromatic whole bean coffee, hand-crafted journals, and a wonderful line of skin care from the Badger Balm Company. Come and see!
