Famous Fly Fishing Shop Lost to Fire
TWIN BRIDGES –
If fly fishing is a religion, and for some it is, then the sport lost one of its holy sites.
“People come from all over the world to visit this little shop. New Zealand, Australia, all over Europe, they come on little pilgrimages just to visit this little shop,” said Joe Brummell, who is a bamboo fly rod maker for Sweetgrass Fly Rods.
The R.L. Winston Co.’s historic shop on E. Third Avenue in Twin Bridge, where they make their world-renown bamboo fly rods was gutted in a fire early Sunday morning.
