Simms Featured Fly Shop


Tailwaters Fly Fishing Company

Interview with Matt Jones, Tailwaters Fly Fishing Co.

What music is likely to be playing in your shop? If we don't have a fly fishing DVD playing on the telly, then we typically play classic rock. You can't beat Zeppelin, Clapton, the Beatles and all those other old dudes.

If you shop was a 1980s sitcom, which one would it be? That's a tough one. It's a 3 way tie between Seinfeld, M.A.S.H. and Cheers.

If I were to tell my best friend why they should go to Tailwaters (besides the awesome array of Simms gear), what should I say? Tailwaters' shop is as "homey" as it gets. The 100+ year old brick walls create the perfect environment for any fly fisherman to hang out and talk fishing, have a cold beer, or do some shopping. The Tailwaters staff also has 120+ years combined experience in fly fishing, travel and casting education. Whether novice or pro, you are always welcome at Tailwaters.
