Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: Taos Fly Shop is a full service year round fly shop. It was the first fly shop in Taos, opened in 1980 by Taylor Streit. Taylor closed the shop in ’87 though he continued to guide the area while authoring three books on the subject. After a 17 year hiatus, Taylor’s son Nick re-opened the Taos Fly Shop in 2004. Nick still owns and operates the store while Taylor manages the guiding business, using the shop as his base. We pride ourselves at being friendly and helpful, providing an easy going, non-intimidating atmosphere. We carry a great selection of equipment for all price ranges and experience levels. Whether you’re looking for technical advice on equipment, the “hot fly”, or your first fly rod, Taos Fly Shop is happy to help.

TFS guide Ron Sedall may be the best guide I've had in the past 25 years, incredibly knowledgeable about the local rivers (Red and Rio Grande), equipment, and fishing strategy but without being arrogant about it. Also a great "coach", patient and encouraging even when your casts are way off the mark. Great experience for myself and my son.

If you are visiting Taos and want to go fishing nearby, this is a great place for information and to get your questions answered. Emily was friendly, patient, and helpful. Feels like we made a friend!

Took a guided trip with Ron to the Los Pinos and Rio Hondo. We had a great time and caught fish. Ron was so helpful and patient for us beginners, now we are inspired to pursue fly fishing back at home in North Georgia. Emily in the shop was delightful to work with as well. If we come back (no WHEN we come back :-) to Taos we'll definitely use this outfitter again.

We tried Dos Amigos, but they simply weren't open when their website said they would be, so we luckily found the Taos Fly shop. We didn't need a guide, just some info and gear. The man there was super nice and told us just where to go and what to use. So over the top friendly, we needed to write a review. We'd come back here in a heart beat.

The staff was relaxed and patient with newbies. Very friendly and we caught fish! A good combination of demonstration and hands-on learning techniques.
