Its called Eskape Anglers. He deals mainly with fly fishing equipment. It is in his house basement. When u go in Wentworth drive( last street before Riverview mall) it is about 7 or 8 houses on the right . Sign on front lawn.

Brian Freeman is his name!
He has flies and all kinds of high and mid ranged gear!
He's a really nice guy that loves fishing and will listen to your stories and share them!
Unlike some dealers around that are just in it for the money!

Thanks

Bryant is top notch. I was looking for a specific color gray hackle for my grey ghosts and he took up into the kitchen and dyed the saddles on the spot. They don't do stuff like that at LL Beans or Cabelas.

I agree with you guys. I found Bryant's place a few years ago and have spent lots of bucks and many pleasent hours in that basement. I almost have to wear a lobster bib to stop from drooling on all the great gear.

You can't beat his prices and his knowledge is outstanding. He's also one of the best commercial tyers around. His website is also worth checking out and if you ever get to Larry's Gulch, Bryant's right the best guide on the river is Johnny Sullivan. I got to fish with Johnny and considered it a treat right up there with getting to the Gulch.

www.salmonflies.com and www.eskapeanglers.com

Websites don't come close to taking the time to go there. If he doesn't have it or can't make it or dye it, it doesn't exist. If nothing else you'll get the chance to meet one helluva good guy. I've spent many hours and dollars in there too and look forward to many more of both.

I see this form is older, but just wanted to echo what everybody is saying about Bryant. A real stand-up guy. I just started fishing for Salmon this year. I got introduced to Bryant via a mutual friend. I was lucky enough to spend my first real Salmon fishing trip with both of these guys plus another experienced fisherman. Bryant knows more than you will find in any book, and enjoys sharing his knowledge of the sport. He put me on my first Salmon, and I think he may have been more excited than me. Talk about an introduction to Salmon fishing. I hope you guys stop by and check out his shop and talk to him for a while. He's one of the best fly tyers around, and sells his flies all over the world. He was actually inducted into the Atlantic Salmon Hall of Fame a few years back for his tying. I consider it a treat each time I visit. Just be warned, you may bust a gut when he starts telling stories.

In the words of Bryant, "He's a Corker"!!

you are 100% right about Byrant .. my 1st encounter was trying to get a pole fixed that lost a few eyes. I left it with Arnold .. and byrant called me at home and said he could fix it but he could sell me a new pole for the same. Once I explained it was a hand me down pole and I had to get it fixed .. he said ok ! well when I went to get the pole the eyelets were an exact match he asked why was this pole so important I said that it was handed down to a grandson and i had to get it fixed .. he said it was a built rod i said yes .. he said who made it i told him a name and his exact words is that "ole bastard still living" I chuckled .. and said yes .. he use to work with him at the CN .. and stories started !!!
