Where are places to buy fly fishing equipment?

Amy Hotz

Fly fishing is a relatively new sport in the Cape Fear area. We don’t have trout streams, but with the Cape Fear River, the Atlantic Ocean and many nearby lakes and streams, this area is a dream for some fly fishermen.

Finding equipment, though, is not as easy as picking up spinner lures.

Your best bets for woolly buggers and midges are Great Outdoor Provision Company, 3501 Oleander Drive, Wilmington [Map this]. Dick’s Sporting Goods, 816 S. College Road, Wilmington [Map this] also has a small fly fishing section.

If you’d like to head out with a guide, several in-shore charter boat captains have fly fishing experience. And red drum caught on a fly in the Intracoastal Waterway is feeling like no other.
