Shop Updates

Fly shop dog Graham with the latest fly shop updates at Spokane's oldest fly shop, Silver Bow - Spokane Washington

Keep local businesses alive

Here we are in mid November and still having the COVID conversation. Back in March we were all optimistic that this would be wrapped up in the summer. Boy were we disillusion then! Fortunately though we are still pushing forward and still OPEN for business.

Sunday's announcement from the governor came as no surprise as we roll through fall and everyone begins to head indoors. As of now we are able to operate at a 25% capacity in the store.

Trying to look at this optimistically, November and the first couple weeks of December are historically our worst weeks of the year for business and in-store shoppers. That being said I don't foresee any issues with folks needing to come into the store and fearing that they may have to wait outside or in the their car. The reality is we only see a fraction of the in-store shoppers this time of the year anyways so a wait line is highly unlikely.

With that if you want to call or email an order in please do so. We would love to help you out at whatever capacity you feel comfortable.


A few things to note:

  • Masks are required in the store. It's a small space and we ask that you respect our business and employees. Don't like it... shop somewhere else.
  • We have disposable masks / sanitizer available.
  • We routinely sanitize door knobs / credit card sliders frequently.
  • Curbside available.
  • Normal store hours.
  • IF the shop appears to be getting busy and you are not purchasing anything, we politely ask that you come back back another time. We value all business, big and small, but unfortunately during this time in the world lingering in the shop will have to wait until this all passes.



We hope to see you in the shop for any of your fly fishing and holiday shopping needs.

Thank you for the continued support this 2020 season.
