California Fly Shop Featured in the Drake!


The Drake featured us on Fly Shop Fridays!

"Inside the shop you'll find a gallery-like esthetic, one where you’re encouraged to touch everything—without fears of being accosted and escorted out the backdoor by security. You’ll also find one of the largest and most diverse collections of fly patterns in California, with more than 60 feet of bins housing trout, steelhead, salmon, carp, tarpon, bonefish and striper flies from the best makers in the business. Rods are showcased at the entrance, dozens of sticks pitched against a curved wall. A custom drift boat rests at the front of the store, reminding people, Carbonnet say, “that flyfishing is a journey to be savored and enjoyed.”

And as far as the journey goes, the Bay Area remains a plentiful destination. From surf to forays in the Bay and Delta, stripers, halibut, perch, and lingcod are always within striking distance. Anadromous fish from kings to steelhead to shad migrate through the rivers and tribs of the Delta. To the east lie the Sierras, with countless streams and lakes. To the north are blue ribbon rivers such as the McCloud, Sacramento, Fall, Hat Creek, Pitt, and the Trinity, to name a few. But it's the banner striper fishing that marks the core of the California Fly Shop experience."
