Welcome to the Shop
Welcome to the North Country Angler, “The Biggest Little Fly Shop in New Hampshire”. We are located in North Conway, New Hampshire, in the shadow of Mount Washington.

Our fly lines include: Rio, Air Flow, Scientific Anglers and Wulff. Other well known brands include: Fishpond, Loon, Dr. Slick and Montana Fly. We have a large selection of Simms waders and boots. With over 700 patterns we have one of the largest selections of flies in New Hampshire. Our fly tying selection is the best in the North Country. HMH, Regal, Peak, Wapsi, Spirit River, Hairline and Whitting to name only a few of the brands we carry. Although we try to post up to date stream reports, in season, on this site please do not hesitate to call us for up to the minute fishing information. All of our staff are licensed New Hampshire fishing guides and stand ready to answer your questions on local conditions as well as any question you may have on equipment.

Invasive Species can ruin the environment and cost us billions of dollars. It's up to each of us to take action to protect our waters from being invaded. Fortunately, the best thing we can do is very easy - we must make sure that we are as clean as possible when we move between waters. Be A Clean Angler: Inspect - Clean - Dry

Losing Time On the Androscoggin
by Bill Thompson
The fishing in our own “Valley” has been pretty good the past few weeks and most anglers would be content to fish right in there own back yard. However, if Big Brother Bob Emery taught us anything the grass is always greener in the other fellows back yard. Disregarding Bob's sage advice I took off my dark glasses and headed north last Sunday to spend the day on the Androscoggin.
