When I first got into town a few months ago, I could have sworn I saw a flyfishing shop just west of town square. I made a mental note to check it out when I got settled in a bit, and now it seems to have disappeared. Has it closed down, am I just looking in the wrong place or have I lost my mind? (entirely possible)

If your talking about the one by the chevron it has closed.. It hasn't been open in a few months.. Try Alexanders or hughes out door store

I think you saw the Orvis sign on the back of the barber shop in town. I think that had just not been taken down as I do not recall a fishing shop being in that building for some time, if ever. I like Stanley's pro shop in Blue Ridge for my outdoors stuff.

There was a fishing shop there for awhile, Spam. I think it was called "North Georgia Fly Fishing". I'm not sure they were able to find their customer base there though. They had a website, but it's gone so it looks like they didn't just move away.

Well part of the problem could be their customers were ALWAYS calling our home number.  We had a number that was one digit off and it drove us crazy.  Our answering machine was always full.  People would leave a message for a business on an obviously personal recorded message and it didn't stop until we changed our number.

There was a guy that came here and chatted with us named Aragon..He hasn't been on here for a few years. I think he had a website for flyfishing in the Blairsville area, and he was also a guide.. I don't know what happened to him.

Rouge,Several years ago I had the opportuniy to talk to an employee at a local tire company.We were talking about local fishing and he mentioned to me that he was quitting the tire changing job and opening a fly fishing business.I didn't think he would be successful and I told him,that.I saw him a couple of years later and the first thing I told him was,I told you it wouldn't fly.Am I allowed to mention his name? It is the son of a former republican commissioner. Maybe Aragon Rouge I have delegated my brother in Tampa to make arrasngment for a week of deep see fishing out of Clearwater,and he has carried out my orders.Fun times await us (six family members)beginning on April six.WRJ Fisherman

Thanks for the info everyone. It was in fact an Orvis sign that I remember seeing. I also found references on a fly fishing board to a shop called "Four Rivers" that used to be downtown, but not sure how long ago it was there.

I did find Appalachian Outfitters, which is in downtown Murphy. They have some fly fishing equipment along with other outdoorsy stuff.

Looks like I need to take a drive to Blue Ridge to check some of the places around there out.
