Who we are
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 2022!
We think you will be happy you found us.
