Nearest shop is urban flyfishers, about 20 minutes from Manhattan.

I would also recommend contacting our sponsor Andrew Moy at Tightlines Flyfishing in Pine Brook New Jersey for area knowledge - saltwater, Delaware trout and outfitting to various destinations like Andros and Newfoundland.

i think orvis has a shop in mid town.

yup, right near Grand Central, though I recall it's a lot more clothing than gear.

you can also try Capitol Fishing Tackle Co. on 218 West 23rd Street

The best and only true fly shop in NYC is Urban Angler between 25-26th street on 5th Ave. Address is 206 Fifth Avenue. Great shop.

I concur that the orvis shop, midtown, is a clothin emporium with a few rods, fly's and stuff out back, was in there yesterday. Jazzman I wish you had posted the address on the urban angler friday. At some point I was within a few blocks.
