"A Genuine Fly Shop"

Remember when you purchase a reel from The Contented Angler, you get free backing which could amount to a $20.00 savings. You also get free shipping when your order totals more than $75.00!

The Contented angler

Surprise! and welcome to the new home of The Contented Angler.. The original site was overdue for an upgrade in order to comply with today's code and guidelines.  By now, you should know us and our philosophy. You will find the same traditional values and honesty the you have come to expect. We now have even more products and the fly tying material is endless.

The Genuine Fly Shop is derived from the “old time” fly shop, complete with rocking chair for you to relax while you are here. After all, the only thing left after we retire are the good things that we’ve done for others. We know how hard you work for your money, we know you’re looking for honesty in this cyber-world. We think you will be happy you found us. Please be patient while we add all of our products. I will be working on this site throughout 2023! In the Footer you will find a link to a new Steelhead page. some of the Hareline produts for 2024 have also arrived! Don't spend too much time here since it prevents you from enjoying the important things that nature has to offer.  Too much screen time is the reason for many mental health problems today.

We think you will be happy you found us.

News & Updates

There is no satisfaction when we sit here and collect money .  Something positive has to emerge from what you are doing. After replacing products the rest of the profits go to a Childrens Hospital. Rather than waste the day , we concentrate on trying to do something positive every day. We first had to be in a situation where we didn't need the money so we wouldn't have to make 100 videos a day to impress you. We do this to meet people that believe and share in our philosophy. Since the internet emerged, we've found that there are far too many experts out there and there was simply not enough room for another one.
