Welcome to my website; I'm Jim Finn and I would rather fish than eat. I'm not an "expert" I am just a guy who loves to fish and have been at it since childhood...about 60 years.
Although I no longer guide locally I do offer hosted trips to, Iceland, Ireland and some special places in the US. Call for information.
I have recently expanded this site to include rods, Reels and Lines. In keeping with the engineering principle of KISS (keep it simple stupid) I am offering for sale the products that I fish myself and feel confident recommending.
If you have a question regarding the rods, reels or lines on this site feel free to call or email me and I'll be happy to make suggestions based on your needs and expectations.
The Golden Retriever– This pattern needs no introduction to fishermen in Virginia, it has been one of the two or three most popular patterns in the state for more than 20 years. And it has a large and growing fan base in The State of Maine, the only place that I have advertised it. The many letters I have received from fly fisherman around the country attest to the efficacy of this killer fly.
Thomas & Thomas Rods – Arguably the world’s finest fly rods. I began carrying Thomas & Thomas Rods in my fly shop over twenty years ago. Of the 5-6 different fly rod brands I carried these were and still are my favorites...the rods I fished and still fish to this day.
Temple Fork Outfitters– TFO fly rods are the “most bang for your buck” a great performing rod for a relatively low price.
Vosseler Reels– Precision German engineering and craftsmanship at an affordable price. I cannot afford a BMW or a Mercedes but I am changing all of my reels over to Vosseler.
Royal Wulff– These award winning lines offer line control…mending and roll casting that is unequalled by any other line out there...period.
Products may be ordered, by PayPal, from this site. If you are interested in purchasing a rod, reel and/or line and would like to discuss it...please call. If you decide to place an order I can charge your credit card and ship the product...it can take only a matter of minutes.
There is never a charge for shipping rod and/or reels. Lines & backing are provided free of charge with the purchase of a Thomas and Thomas rod and Vosseler reel. Backing is provided at no charge with the purchase of any reel and line.
When you call you will speak with me; I have no emplyees (KISS). Call from 7:00 AM to 7:00PM Eastern time, 7 days a week.
