I have already driven from Wallingford to visit the store and it will be a regular destination for my fly fishing needs. West Seattle is lucky to have attracted what will be a world class establishment. I have known Dave McCoy for years and he is well respected in the fly fishing business.

No offense to the fishermen but besides Pecado & Shadowland (practically the street) patios are few and far between up here. I thought the newer developments would take heed of that but guess not. Would love to have a Lil' Woody's or Lunchbox Lab. burger spot around. When the spouse and I are craving a good burger in The Junction, we always scratch our heads...

I'd love to be able to pick up some swivels/hooks/downriger gear right here without crossing the bridge ! Maybe a small bait freezer !!!

Walk ins can help but they make their nut based on service to repeat customers. Also, I, and many other WS fly fishers wailed on pinks with flies, fly rods, and fly lines all last summer. Thanks anyway for a weak attempt to define the spirit of fly fishing...for yourself? Anyway, welcome EWA! I'll see you soon. Hey cynical Steve: fly shops are destinations for fly fishers.

People are on the way. Ostensibly that'll change the foot traffic situation. New developments are on the way to the other side of the street, and at least one remains queued up for the same side of the street as this, plus two smaller multi-family projects to replace single-family houses immediately east. . Anyway, going back through the archives, a side note - The building was originally approved 5+ years ago with much more retail space - about 20,000 square feet. That was <a href="http://westseattleblog.com/2011/06/2-west-seattle-project-changes-oregon42nd-denny-demolition/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">cut down to about 3,000 total</a> by the time the project got moving again after a few years of idleness. I didn't get the square feet on this shop but records indicating that in turn was broken into two spaces, and one is still listed for lease.
