There is a fly shop downtown in the Civic Center, where Rupp Arena is. The Sporting Tradition, an Orvis shop. They are nice people. I was reading the posts about folks going into western fly shops and being treated poorly. The Sporting Tradition was the first fly shop I went to and they were very nice. I didn't know enough to even ask the right questions but if they were laughing they were polite enough to let me leave before they let go!
