For me, Darren Selznick's Ole Florida Fly Shop has been much more than a retail site to conveniently purchase fly fishing and fly tying equipment. Darren gets to know the people who enter his shop as individuals with their own goals and he sees his role as advising each of us so that what we purchase is really going to be right for us in achieving our fly fishing ambitions.
Over the past decade I have benefited from a long-term education as Darren helped me solve countless fly casting, fly fishing and fly tying problems as they came up. Ole Florida Fly Shop is a real ally in helping its customers develop and learn this great sport.
In my 40+ years as a serious fly fisherman and fly guide, I must have wandered into 100 fly shops all across this country. Darren Selznick at Ole Florida Fly Shop is easily the hardest working fly shop owner I have ever seen. Extremely knowledgeable in both local fishing and travel destinations, he will go to the ends of the earth to get whatever you need in the unlikely event he does not already have it in his well stocked shop.
If actually getting to his shop is a problem, he is happy to ship to you. The inventory of rods, reels, lines, flies, fly tying materials and clothing is second to none and topped off with weekly fly tying classes and periodic seminars by fly fishing experts, there really isn't a need to go anywhere else.
A true product of our environment, Ole Florida Fly Shop is your go-to salt-centric fly fishing mega-shop. With homebase just minutes from the water in South Florida’s Boca Raton, Ole Florida was strategically built to meet the needs of saltwater fly fishing’s pioneers as they traveled up and down the state exploring the waters. Today our roots stretch out from our local waters, to Montana streams, New Jersey shorelines, Louisiana marshes, Everglades backcountry, Bahamas flats, and nearly everywhere in-between.
