The Angler's Edge CELEBRATING 20 YEARS!! Is THE full service fly shop serving the Eastern Sierra, northern Nevada and northern California areas. We have been nestled in Northern Nevada's Carson Valley since 1994. The Valley is surrounded by the Eastern Sierra mountain range which provides an abundance of fantastic trout waters from high desert rivers to lofty alpine getaways.
Nearby to scenic Lake Tahoe and historic Carson City, we enjoy supporting the local and vacationing fly fishermen. We not only offer equipment and materials for fly fishing and fly-tying, we also offer Guiding, fly fishing lessons from casting to entomology, fly tying classes with expert tying instructors and rod and reel repairs.
Our local waters include the West and East forks of the Carson and Walker Rivers, the Owens & Truckee Rivers and numerous lakes like Spooner, Indian Creek, Crater & Blue Lakes as well as trophy lakes like Heenan, and Pyramid where giant
cutthroat await... to hidden creeks and seldom visited high country lakes also found nearby.
