Maryland Fly Fishing Gear Curbside Pickup Halted

OK folks, as they say, we’re all in this together. Stay well. Thank you for your patronage. The shop would not exist as a small retail specialty shop without your loyalty, kindness and friendship. We wish nothing more but for you and your families to stay healthy and happy.

While we greatly appreciate that many of our loyal and quite a few new customers were able to get out on the Gunpowder River during opening day weekend and take part in our curbside pickup offerings, today’s order COVID19-07 from the Governor’s office halts our curbside pickup. The silver lining being that people will be safer at home. We can still sell products on a delivery basis and for that reason have waived all priority mail shipping costs from orders placed during this time. If you can’t find what you need in the catalog please call us at 410-357-9557 and please let us know what you need.

We have instead instituted website and phone ordering 410-357-9557 during regular business hours.

We will not be updating stream reports at this time-however please view the archives in the sidebar to get a sense of how the river has historically fished during the 19 years we’ve freely shared our knowledge of the River by visiting and scrolling down the sidebar of the Backwater Angler website. Need a break? One suggestions would be to use the search by typing in Hendricksons or March Browns to get a glimpse of what we’ve been reporting on…

We do not have flies on the website for sale individually and so have grouped fly selections based on river location and category. i.e. Dries, Nymphs, and Streamers Euro Nymphs.

We suggest that you call the shop at 410-357-9557 to place fly orders. We will ship any order free freight USPS priority mail during this time. Please email the shop or check the stream report if you need additional guidance.

For online orders over $25, customers can choose between a pack of Patagonia Provisions Mellow Curry Savory Seeds or Classic Barbecue Savory Seeds
a Patagonia Provisions Inca Berry and Almond Bar, Mango and Almond Bar or an Apricot and Almond Bar.
