Rob took me and a buddy out on the Gunpowder, Great Feathers provided all of the gear. Trout weren't really biting, but we had an excellent time and Rob was very informative. Learned a few things I'll be applying on future outings. Rob also offered a session with his Tenkara rod, a style of fly fishing I'd heard a lot about but had yet to try. Great experience, well-stocked store, informative and excellent customer service. Highly recommend!

hard to say but suggest caution. Based on a phone call discussion, was made to feel like I was bothering them.
Response from the owner - 2 months ago
Steve, I am Mike Watriss and I am the owner of Great Feathers. I saw that you wrote this review regarding a conversation that we had, today. If I am thinking about the same call, I apologize for in any way being dismissive or put off. I had several loud customers in the shop and was trying to check someone out at the same time. That is no fault of yours and trust me when I say, that I was by no means, bothered only busy. I hope that accept my apologies! I take reviews very seriously as online information is essential for potential business. I am hoping that you will give me and my business another chance and understand that that was not the standard and rather an exception. If you had more questions, call and ask for me, directly! I assure you that I value every customer, whether potential or regular. Bad reviews are the kiss of death and I will never accept one without a chance for understanding what happened and what can be done better. Please allow me that and give me a call to discuss or I can call you. Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon, Mike

Great fly tying supplies, fly fishing gear and great advice from friendly and knowledgeable staff make this a great choice for online or in person shopping. Their excellent material selection helped me to tie very effective traditional winged wet flies, soft hackles and North Country spiders. The expertise and service are superb. This is one of the few places whose staff will talk you out of something you don't need, or point you to a less expensive alternative which will serve just as well. Good people who know their stuff make this place a great place to shop,. Online orders are fulfilled with scrupulous attention to detail and great communication. Bravo.

Decided to start fly fishing. Went to the big "sport stores" and found out that all their store clerks knew less than I did. I accidentally drove by Great Feathers and decided to stop. Met Dave B (some long name) and he was very friendly and knowledgeable on fly fishing. Knew that I was new in the sport and "hooked me up (no pun intended)" with all the right gear. It was very pleasant to shop there and I look forward to their instruction classes in the spring.

The hubby and I took a fly fishing lesson from Rob a few weeks back and had an excellent time! He's knowledgable and easy going. We learned a great deal in four hours and my husband caught a lovely little rainbow trout in the process. Highly recommend for gear and fishing consult.

Can't go wrong with this place. Knowledgeable and helpful staff, loads of quality material, and prices that are on par with any other place. I'm pretty new to fly fishing and these guys patiently answer all of my questions and spend time with me helping me decide what I need. They will not oversell you, if they feel you're better off with something less expensive, they'll tell you. I've called them while fishing the Gunpowder and even though they had no idea who I was they still answered all my 'what should I do in this scenario' questions. I still didn't catch the fish but that was my fault, not theirs... Just make sure you bring a dog treat for Jack the dog. I have no idea how many hours he puts in at the shop but he always seems to be there.

If you're looking to travel this summer, Field & Stream magazine suggests this hidden gem in South Dakota!
One of the greatest places in the U.S. to catch big trout in beautiful streams with no crowds (for now, at least) may surprise you
