There is a GINormous Bass Pro Shops a couple of miles west in Destin that is really dedicated to salt fishing! There is also an Orvis shop just east of the BPS that has next to nothing in it but a great selection of flies! Going back toward Panamaw City there is Old Florida Anglers which lies just off 30A...Not really any thing more than a guide booking station that seels a few used rods and some really nice flies! I don't think there is much in PC? Though I don't really know!

If I were you and you were just wanting flies...I would take the thirty minute trip up 30A, enjoy the scenery, and stop by Old Florida Anglers! http://www.orvis.com/intro.asp?subject=2416 It's Orvis's site, but at least you can get directions...They do have a site too, but Orvis's link is bad!

Good luck on your Florida endevours!

PS-Here's a place to find out what the action is like on 30A, in and around Destin http://www.sowal.com/bb/showthread.php?t=6300

Here's the site for Shallow Water Anglers...the group that guides out of Old Florida Outfitters. http://www.shallowwaterexpeditions.com/reports.php This is David Magnum and his crew....Byron will tell you he's one of the finest Tarpon fly fisherman out there!

Good luck again!

I'll second fishermansfly, BPS in Destin, and Orvis in Sandestin which is just 10-15 minutes east of BPS. Just about 30-45 minutes west of Panama City, both shops are right off 98.

Default Thanks

Thanks Brett and TA, for the help. I've been to the BPS last year in Destin, but wasnt fly fishing in saltwater yet, so just skipped the flies alltogether. Didnt have much time there either. Gonna make a definite stop there on the way down to PCB in a couple of months. Gonna try to hit those fly shops as well. Thanks again! Good fishin to ya!
