About the RRSS’s 75th Anniversary: In the year 1945 George Fletcher moved his home business to Main Street Rangeley and opened Fletcher’s Fly Shop. His main business was fly tying supplies but also sold flies and other fly fishing gear. He sent out a printed catalog filling orders from all around the country. The catalog went out for nearly 40 years under three different owners. We are blessed to be the seventh owners and stewards of what I believe is the oldest running fly shop in the state. We will be celebrating the store’s 75th year throughout 2020, mostly during the summer months. We will be writing a series of blogs on the history of the shop and another about old fly patterns called “Patterns of the Past.” An “Angling Arts” show that we are sponsoring opens on July 10th and will be in place for a couple weeks at the Lakeside Theater. We also plan on having a series of events featuring well known tiers and anglers. Coming for spring newly designed t-shirts and hats will help to commemorate the anniversary. Stay tuned as we still have lots of planning to do and will keep everyone posted as the year progresses.
