    Been goin to jim's place for years. He taught me how to tie a green weenie. Showed me how to tie it right there in his shop. Jim is very knowledgeable and if he doesnt have what your looking for he will gladly get it for you. Best little fly shop in pittsburgh.

    Jim's good people. Always quick with a smile and a good story. Kinda like going to the barber shop.

    Jim taught me how to whip finish. I never would have tied a fly without his help. I worked at a tackle shop nearby Jim's flyshop and he didn't consider me selling flies as competition. we had a good working relationship. Can't say that about some other fishing shops in the same area. We followed Jim's lead and not their's when it came to customer service.

    I went to Hoey's twice...

    International Angler is a far better shop

    not a fan on hoeys...  bought a fly rod there, he told me if there was ever a problem w the rod to call him up and he'd take care of it.  well i broke the tip section, i called him up.  he said, call the manufacturer.    IA is much better IMO.

    Don't blame Jim, manufacture warrantee policies change due to the dishonest anglers taking advantage of old warantees (saying it broke on a fish when it broke in a car door).
    IA is alright as well. Gave me good directions to one of my favorite spots years ago.
    Jim is a friend while IA is a store to me.
