St Peters Fly Shop- South Location

Fort Collins is home to one of the finest fly shops in the country, St. Peter's Fly Shop.  When I first moved to Colorado, I remember going to the Old Town location and being treated like a long time customer and friend from day one.  The folks that work there are always happy to share advice, and have a knack for displaying that fly fishing item that you suddenly realize that you have to buy.

The Old Town location is housed in a historic building that gives true character to the shop.  A while back, St. Peter's opened a south Fort Collins location in a storefront after taking over another fly shop.

 Just recently, they announced that they had moved into another building at 2008 E. Harmony Rd.  I visited the new digs for the first time the other day, and was amazed at the location.   They have restored an old house/barn, and turned it into a beautiful fly shop that has to be seen in person to be appreciated.  Visiting both locations gives you a sense of Fort Collins history, which blends nicely into the history and tradition of this sport that we love.

  1. If I can ever get my wife to slow down as we approach The Fort, I'd love to check it out. Maybe I'll give you a shout and you can provide an escort to the shop?
