easy but the Roy’s team has always managed to overcome adversity. Like my buddies told me nearly 20 years ago, in their recentlyexpanded facility, Roy’s really does have everything. Rocky sees to the majority of the tackle side while Mike and Michelle marshal the progress of the new fly shop, kayaking and clothing departments. The kayak side is growing leaps and bounds and Mike and his team are doing a splendid job of custom rigging paddle boats to buyer’s specifications. For beginners, they also offer kayak demos and paddling lessons to assist buyers in selecting the model that best suits their needs. The clothing section is like a Macy’s for fishermen. Michelle has
brought in all the best lines. Anglers can find a great selection of everything from waders to everyday fishing attire, along with smartly styled fishing-casual for both men and women. Roy’s fly shop is booming too, riding the crest of saltwater fly fishing’s popularity that nobody could have predicted even a few years ago. The in-store stock includes top-of-the-line rods and reels and all the accessories coastal fly anglers need. They also provide fly casting instruction and tying classes for all levels of anglers. If you haven’t been to Roy’s Bait and Tackle Outfitters recently, you should plan to pay them a visit. I believe you will be impressed.
