Store Manager: Adam Schroeder
Fly fishing and fly tying has been a part of Adam’s life from a very young age. Adam enjoys teaching people how to tie flies and fly fish as much as he enjoys tying and fishing himself. He has extensive knowledge of local waters for warm water species, trout, and steelhead. He encourages people to take advantage of the amazing fishing opportunities in their back yard. Aside from Western New York he has fished from the Adirondacks all the way to Montana, Colorado, and Idaho. Adam has over 13 years of retail experience with Orvis. Other than fly fishing, Adam enjoys perfecting his skills as a musician on drums, guitar and piano. He enjoys spending time around town, and on the water with his girlfriend Amanda and, his two dogs Sophie and Ollie. Adam is excited to help you get outfitted for your next outdoor adventure!
Fishing Manager: Adam Slavinski
Adam’s passion for the sport started at a very young age working local streams with his father, a NYS licensed guide. Since that time, his passion has led him to explore the American west for trout, the magnificent Atlantic Salmon rivers of the Gaspe Peninsula, and chase Steelhead in British Columbia. Adam loves tying both modern and classic Atlantic Salmon and Steelhead tube flies. To say that Adam specializes in two handed casting and fishing is an understatement-he is an expert on both. However, Adam never loses sight of the basics of the sport and sharing his passion with anglers just starting out. When he is not at the store, Adam can be found on the water somewhere-most likely with his father.
