Virginia Creeper Fly Shop

A Full Service, Full Line Fly Shop for Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee

Virginia Creeper Fly Shop

Welcome to the Virginia Creeper Fly Shop!

Welcome to our shop. We are a full line specialty fly shop located in Abingdon Virginia. Our knowledge and experience derive from fishing local waters including mountain trout streams in the Jefferson and Cherokee National Forests, the trout tailwater rivers of Watauga and South Holston and smallmouth bass rivers of the Holston and Clinch. Additionally, I have fished the shallow saltwaters of South Carolina, the Keys, Bahamas and the Yucatan; I would be pleased to pass along what I have learned from those experiences regarding tackle, fly patterns and trip planning.

My staff and I have been in business since 1994. While I am no longer guiding, we can recommend qualified guide services in our area. I encourage you to call on us to assist you with your fishing plans or help you with your tackle and supply needs.
