This last weekend, Nick Streit of the Taos Fly Shop and Ivan Valdez of The Reel Life officially became co-owners of The Reel Life. Nick has owned the Taos Fly Shop for over a decade, raising it to its pinnacle position as a fly fishing authority in northern New Mexico and around the world. Similarly, Ivan's years of guiding and being under the hood of The Reel Life's retail operations ensures that TRL's signature friendly service will endure at the store's new location.

 

That's right! New location, in the west corridor of the De Vargas Mall, with tons of space that we intend to fill with everything the fly fisher will ever need. 

Come by this Saturday. Avail yourself of a free Nick Streit casting demo. Or just say hi to Nick and Ivan!



Along with Winston and Reddington, our selection of fine fly rods now includes ORVIS. 


Speaking of Winston, there's no better time to buy a green stick (BIIIX, GVX, BIIt) at TRL.  Buy a Winston green stick and receive a $125 gift cert, which can be applied to a TRL guide trip (or TRL merchandise).

Come check out our new logo hats! Really cool look. You will love em!
