Spring is fly fishing season at Maine Sport!
If you haven't been to the fly shop at Maine Sport recently, you're in for
some pleasant surprises. We've added several new product lines, and expanded
some existing ones, just in time for open water, which is due any month.
SAGE makes more premium rods than any other company in the world, and now
you can get one locally. Maine Sport stocks models from seven of the eight
series the company offers, and you can load one up and try it on our pond!
In fact, we plan to stock some trout this spring, so later on you may even
know how a rod feels under load.
Also new this spring is the Legend Elite series of fly rods from ST. CROIX.
It's the company's first venture into the premium price range, and they're
fast, powerful and elegant looking. We also stock a wide array of St.Croix's
four other fly rod series, as well as dozens of their spin rods.
For newcomers or those on a budget, we now stock complete rod/reel/line
outfits from Scientific Anglers starting at $89.95.
In the world of waders, SIMMS products are second to none. We carry three
models: the top of the line G3 Guide, the Lightweight,(both using Gore-Tex
technology) and the Freestone. All are breathable and, believe it or not,
MADE IN THE USA! We also have Simms vests, jackets, and accessories.
RIO fly lines and leaders are due in any day, and are also an exciting
addition to our shop. The company has long been known for its innovative
products, like the new Clouser Fly Line for throwing big nasty flies, and
the incredibly fast-sinking Deep 7.
In addition, we have a huge selection of fly tying tools and materials, and
over 100 titles of fly fishing and tying books. And you can look for new
stuff from HODGMAN, DR. SLICK, ROSS REELS, FIN-NOR, and C & F DESIGN.
Finally, the shop offers 2-hour fly casting clinics, full-day schools,
guided fishing trips in both fresh and salt water, and free stories and
Regardless of the weather, come in, look around, and get your fix!
