I am looking for information on outdoor retailers in the Atlanta metro area that carry a large inventory of fly fishing equipment and are reasonably priced.

Thanks, any information would be helpful.

I just moved back to the Northeast from Atlanta over the Summer. The Fish Hawk has a great selection of gear and is staffed by some very knowledgable guys; I recommend that store very much. There are two Orvis dealers, one in Buckhead down the road from the Fish Hawk, and another off Johnson's Ferry Road near the 120 loop (forget the name). They don't have nearly as good a selection as the Fish Hawk. Bass Pro Shops (exit 108 off of 85) has a decent selection if you're willing to drive a few minutes, and the sales staff are (again) pretty good (which I was quite surprised to discover). The only other store I ever went into was up in Hiawassee; forget the name, but a good shop. Good luck!

The Fish Hawk,
Good buncha guys, generous with the info on the 'Hoochie River. 0ne Being a Re-lo from Maine may have something to do with it.
