Fly Fishing Gear with YOU in Mind
You Asked. We Listened.
In 2018, we launched Northkill Tackle by selling custom landing nets and fishing rods. This has kept us busy but we are always get the question, “What else do you sell?” We are always listening to our customers and are happy to announce that Northkill Tackle now sells a wide range of fly fishing gear and flies and we hope to become one of your favorite online fly shops. In addition to our hand built wood landing nets and fishing rods, we now sell a wide variety of fly fishing gear like rod and fly storage, floatants and line weights, hooks, tying accessories and lots of flies. Just a few of the brands we carry are Loon, Firehole, Dr. Slick, Clear Creek and Tacky Fly Fishing.
Why Buy From Northkill Tackle?
Using just two sentences, quality determines what we carry. If we wouldn’t use it on the water, we wouldn’t expect you to either. Every single item we carry is a product we carry on the water or use on our tying bench. In some cases we’ve been using these products for years. We offer our fly fishing gear at the most affordable price possible. I remember walking into high-end fly shops during the late 1990s and wondering to myself “who pays these prices!?” While my economic situation has changed since then, I still can’t justify overspending for anything.
Help for Beginners
It can be daunting to learn how to start fly fishing but we know exactly what you need for a fly fishing beginner setup. We won’t oversell you and we’re here for you for the long term. Have a question before you buy? We’re here for you. Have a question months after an order? Just reach out to us. Like Trout Unlimted and Fly Fishers International, we have a vested interest in helping newcomers and seeing them evolve into the anglers they want to be.
Wide Range of Accessories
Northkill Tackle offers some of the best fly fishing equipment and accessories in our fly fishing shop including thermometers and tippet holders, floatants, line weights, indicators and line cleaner too. Our 100% made in the USA rod sleeves and storage tubes from Clear Creek will protect your rods off the water.
So you don’t lose your landing net or fishing tools, consider a Dr. Slick magnetic net keeper. The coiled lanyard keeps you in connection with your valuable gear. Don’t worry about chasing (or swimming) for lost gear ever again!
Landing nets, hand made in our own shop, will be the last net you ever need. Our custom built fishing rods will give you reliable service for years to come. A lifetime warranty accompanies our nets and rods giving you piece of mind and pride in ownership.
Flies & Fly Tying
When you need to stock up your fly boxes, Northkill Tackle has close to 50 fly patterns for you to choose from. From traditional dry flies to the latest articulated streamers for monster fish, we have you covered. Our Euro Nymph flies are becoming more popular as that tactic is adopted by more anglers across the country. While some of our flies are tied in-house, most of our offerings are sourced from a distributor in the western United States. We’ve extensively tested the flies we sell and know they will stand up to plenty of punishment and even turn a few heads on other fishermen too! Prices start at just $1.50/fly, making it easy for you to get what you need on a budget. If you need a specific pattern and can not find it on our website, just send an email for a special request.
Perhaps you already tie your own flies. In that case Northkill Tackle can offer you Firehole hooks which are barbless and razor sharp. Firehole Outdoors is based in Bozeman, MT and operated by a husband and wife team. Their reputation in the fly tying community is growing at a rapid pace as anglers see the quality in their products. We also carry Firehole’s magnetic fly tying stations that will keep all of your fly tying gear in one place.
For those of you that already have a large array of flies, take a look at our Tacky Fly Boxes – the latest boxes in the industry that use silicone inserts that hold your flies tight and keep their shape for longer than any styrofoam insert can. Tacky Fly Boxes will get your fly collection organized and efficient.
Loon products represent some of our favorite accessories, from weights and floatants to fly tying tools. As an official Loon dealer, Northkill Tackle can get you exactly what you need. Loon products allow you to fish with a conscience since their products are developed with conservation and environmental stewardship in mind. Loon offers reusable and biodegradable weights, making sure lost tackle doesn’t harm wildlife. Their floatants, sinkets and cleaners are solvent-free and consist of water-soluble components that perform without polluting the water.
Just as Northkill Tackle respects the environment, we know you do too. Loon products can help you carry out that ethos.
