OUR STORY

Of all places, ReelFlyRod has grown and flourished in Dayton, Ohio, to become one of the largest and most respected fly shops in the USA. But the best part is, we’ve built a valuable resource for fly fishers not just locally, but across the United States and every corner of the world! You will not find a better team than the 7 guys that make up the ReelFlyRod Pro Staff. We work hard together, we fish hard together. It doesn't matter who you speak to at ReelFlyRod, you get an expert to help you with anything you need. Our success is built on going well above every customer’s expectations and beyond what other shops are willing or able to do. We are eager to share our 58 years of combined fly fishing experience with you, and help shorten the learning curve, whether you’re brand new to the sport, or are a hard-core angler. We can outfit you with the best high-performance gear, at any price point, whether you are chasing tarpon, peacock bass, bonefish, trout, bass…even sharks and sailfish.

Visiting the fly shop is definitely worth the trip when you’re in town or even if you’re just passing through. The shop is a lively place with a cool vibe in a lodge-type setting, and we have more gear in-stock than you’ve ever seen in a fly shop! Expect to be greeted by Daisy or Bear, the shop dogs, and one of our super gear-heads: Parker, Kyle, Joey, Jacob, Ryan, or John. Then step out back to our grass casting range and cast all the latest technologies in fly rods. There’s cold beer in the fridge, plenty of laughter, and top-notch gear everywhere you look! We offer both private and group casting lessons, private on-water instruction, and winter fly-tying “Beers & Bobbins” sessions. In the community, ReelFlyRod supports numerous local fundraisers and and non-profits, works with local fly fishing clubs, partners with Five Rivers Metroparks to host free “Try Fly Fishing” events, is a member of AFFTA, and attends the industry IFTD convention each year. We also feature local guided trips, both half and full day, for smallmouth bass, trout, and instruction on the southern Ohio river systems.

We want you to choose ReelFlyRod for all your fly fishing needs. We really want you to tell all your friends about us. To make these two things happen, we will do whatever it takes to make this the easiest, fastest, most amazing online experience you’ve ever had before! You simply will not receive better, first-class customer service than you will at ReelFlyRod. We ship orders with lightning speed (90% within 1 business day), will resolve any issue immediately to your complete satisfaction, and your message will receive a fast reply, even on evenings and weekends. You will always receive this same amazing service, whether ordering online or when you walk in the fly shop. Returns are never a problem. New rod doesn’t suit your casting style? Send it back. Jacket doesn’t fit the way you thought? Send it back. We’ll exchange it or provide a full refund, whatever makes you happy. If there’s something we can do better, we want to know about it. ReelFlyRod is a small, independent fly shop of 7 “fishy” guys whose collective mission is to help you maximize your enjoyment of your time on the water!
