"Steelhead University" was a huge success! Special thanks to Jerry Darkes, Jeff Liskay, Greg Senyo and Scott Fly Rods. Look for Fall dates to be announced shortly.

Bill Harsha booked a float trip on the Conneaut with us and landed 4 steelhead yesterday despite the high and dirty water. A few on the swing as well! Float trips booking now and the season is really just kicking-in. The best is yet to come!!!

Holy Crap! Our good friend Shawn Abernathy just brought us this pic of a HUGE...like HUGE Bigmouth Buffalo. Caught on Sunday in Big Walnut Creek on a Clouser Minnow. Truly Epic! Thanks Shawn.

You have the carp, we have the redfish! We didn't get a chance to meet when you were down this past Fall, but I'll be seeing you guys in September-October down at the Woodland Plantation. I'll keep posting so that you know how it's going down here.

The AuSable boat is getting a "re-fin" and should be back on the Mad soon. Brian Flechsig will be offering a limited number of floats later in the Spring and throughout the season. Contact him at the shop if you are interested. This is a GREAT way to fish the Mad.

These guys take fly fishing to the next level! I dare you to walk into this store and not walk out with your inner hunter/gatherer fighting its way out. They have everything you need to get started fly fishing - the equipment, the garb, the lessons - and everything you need to feed your lifelong passion including guided flyfishing trips to exotic locales. The staff is uber-friendly, ready with a kind smile and a passion for their work and eager to share knowledge on anything fly fishing. Their excellent customer service is matched by their extensive inventory. Well worth the trip for the fly fish curious or for the one looking for a gift for that special someone. I'll definitely be back!

I have had the pleasure of doing business with Mad River Outfitters for almost 5 years when I started fly fishing. They were incredibly helpful as Andy Diller indicated in his review. I was so spoiled having a shop that carried everything I could possibly need and more. They are all great people that have a wealth of knowledge, want to help in every way possible, and enjoy being there. Sadly, I moved to another state and can no longer stop in the shop. But, I continue to order from their online store. They have overnighted items I needed as well as gone out of there way to special order custom products. Not only do they carry everything, they also have the most incredible trip packages! Montana was AMAZING! I miss you guys at MRO like crazy!!!

Used them for mail order. They messed up order, then some of the items were defective. They wouldn't take my word for it and made me return everything at my expense before they would consider replacing it. Ended up costing me time and money. Will not order from them again.
Response from the owner - 5 months ago
First of all, I greatly apologize about this. That is not usually how we do business and totally un-acceptable. The part about the shipping is most strange and would love to know who you dealt with. We NEVER charge return shipping....somebody made a HUGE mistake and again our most sincere apologies. In a situation like this the order should have been refunded in full and the return shipping paid. If there is ever anything we can do to make up for this...we would be happy to. This type of service is not the norm here at Mad River Outfitters.....period. If you would be so kind as to contact me directly at the shop...you will find that we WILL make this up to you, as we always do when mistakes are made. Brian Flechsig, Founder and President

I've never had an opportunity to make it to the shop, but have always had great experiences online. The customer service is phenomenal and the website and newsletters are great. A great, great shop. I hope to one day make it from Central PA to the shop.

Most knowledgeable fly fishing store in Ohio. Excellent products, and top quality flies, but the workers are what make this place worth visiting. Every time I go in I learn something new. They have taught me how to make my leaders better, how to tie on flies more effectively, and given me tips on where to fish around the area (I'm from out of town). Honestly, these guys have spent hours helping me, and I'm in no way a big spender.
Response from the owner - 5 months ago
Wow- thanks Andy! We are blushing. Appreciate the kind words. Big spender or not, everyone is a GREAT customer at Mad River Outfitters
