Who We Are . . .
Located at an altitude of 8,000 ft in the High Sierra resort comunnity of Mammoth Lakes, Calfornia, the Troutfitter is a full-service fly shop with a staff of 14 plus 16 guides, including the owner who still guides full time in the summer at the ripe old age of 69. This is trout country and we chase Rainbow, Brown, Cutthroat, Brook and Golden Trout all year round. The business was started in 1992. We entered the e-commerce business about 8 years ago and have grown so much that our internet business eclipsed our in-store business in 2013.
One reason for that growth is that being a small company we can give every customer the attention he or she deserves, sharing our expertise in the products we sell and minding every order with care. This is not a 'computer and warehouse' operation but real people . . . real people that are all avid anglers themselves. We fish around the world particularily in the winter when the trout fishing is hampered by our large snowfalls many years. So if you are looking for a recommndation on a bonefish line or a reel to handle Blue Fin Tuna, one of our staff has the expertise to help you. If we do not know the answer to your question we will pursue it with the pros at the companies that make the products we carry.
To better serve our Internet customers we have built a brand new website as of Spring 2014 and it curently offers about half the brands we carry.. More brands will be added over the rest of 2015 until it is fully built out. We strive to have the best prices on the Intermet - we check every day. Let us know if you find a better price out there - we will beat it. We also sell on eBay and you can find many products listed there as well. Look for the "Trout Fly and Troutfitter" ebay store under 'Stores' in 'Advanced Search'.
