It’s been a busy few days for Johnny Spillane, but he’s at home when the co-owner of Steamboat Flyfisher talks about the recent move of the store surrounded by fly rods and flies-filled cases. It was clear that I felt like.
“It’s pretty hard to beat this, which means I don’t know if there are too many fly shops to fish on the back deck,” he says, owning a shop with partners Rob Baden, John and Jarrett Duty. Spiran said. “We are pretty happy about that.”
They are all pleased to finally move to a new location at 655 Yampa St. And we believe there will be more foot traffic from custom-printed T-shirts and custom clothing to the new 2,300-square-foot retail space packed with everything. It’s functional and fashionable in the river, ranging from the latest high quality fly rods, reels and even the gear you need to get the most out of every adventure.
“It’s close to the center of downtown,” said owner John Duty. “Looking at the main street, there are some golden blocks and Yampa is a similar deal.”
Move from Steamboat Fly Fishers Two blocks away, the old location on the corner of Fifth Street and Yampa Street was a fast-moving event just before the July 4th holiday. John Duty said the staff started the process of moving the store when the old location closed at 2:00 pm on June 30th and finished work by 7:00 the next morning. The business resumed on Friday, July 1st at a new location without missing a beat.
“Because it’s a larger retail space, we can carry a few more things, and we can dig a little deeper, mostly for apparel types,” Spiran said. “We haven’t changed what we have or anything like that. It’s all the same, but hopefully a better space to see everything.”
According to Spillane, the newly expanded space adds 800 square feet, allowing stores to put more goods on the floor, Simms, Echo, Patagonia, Costa RL Winston, Smith, Sage, Scientific Anglers, Rio. , Scott. Guests can also schedule guided float trips, walking and wading trips. The store also has access to the private waters of ranches in eight regions and also offers an overnight backcountry trip.
From this location you can enjoy unobstructed views of Howellsen Hill and the Yampa River. Flowing just outside the large sliding glass doors, you can reach the wooden deck from the back of the store to see the water flowing by your customers. The interior of the store is bordered by large glass windows on three sides, illuminating the space.
“We were originally supposed to be there last spring,” said John Duty. “But anyway, we’re finally there. It’s a super space and we designed it with all the big sliding doors. I’m excited to be there. No doubt.”
The retail space is open Monday to Saturday from 7am to 6pm and Sunday from 7am to 5pm.
Steamboat Flyfisher and Backing Rainbow Outfitters It was merged in June 2021 and decided to operate under the name of Steamboat Flyfisher. John Duty said the new store will continue to offer the backing rainbow logo on T-shirts sold in the new store.
“It’s so cool to be in the river,” Spiran said. “Looking back, it’s pretty cool just to see someone catching a fish from your backdeck.”
