D&H adds a Sperry shoe to the range

Delamere & Hopkins has been selling Sperry boat shoes for over twenty years.  Mark has been living in Sperrys since forever.

"I remember wearing them in the third grade, and high school with duct tape on them (that was cool), and all through college and well, right now as I am typing this.  The Bahama style is as old-school as you can get and the oyster color can be seen up and down the east coast.   When I see this shoe I think about the Low Country of the Carolinas and shrimp & grits."

Why did it take D&H so long to bring this model in?  I dunno.

this classic shoe screams summer


D&H has many styles and colors at the Hyde Park Square shop.

Assorted Articulated Streamers $8

These articulated streamers are great for targeting large fish.  They move, wiggle, push water and grab the attention of every fish around.  These flies are best thrown on a heavier rod like a 7wt or 8wt. These are flies that Alex frequently uses to fish for big trout and tied up for the shop!

Fly Fishing Gear on Sale

   This time of year we always have a few items that have been discontinued over the winter. Look below for details on these items:

Simms Freestone Waders, Size 2XL
Were $249.00  Now $174

   Simms' classic wader. We have carried these for years. A great summer weight wader for the experienced fisherman or first pair for a new fisherman.
(Boots not included)


Thomas & Thomas Horizon II  #10
 Was $800   Now $560
    Get this rod for most of your heavy inshore fishing duties, musky adventures, or to chase King Salmon. The Horizon is a fast action rod that is comfortable to throw. This series has been a shop favorite for many years. 

Hardy Fortuna X2 
Was $745     Now $521

     The Hardy Fortuna would be a perfect match for the T&T #10. I have fished this reel on several saltwater trips. It is a extremely strong reel that is very user friendly. The drag is fully sealed and set at maximum boasts and impressive 30 lbs. of resistance.

Patagonia Wading Boots (select sizes)

Rockgrip: Were $179  Now $125



 

 
 Stay upright in these sticky rubber boots that also accept studs. These exhibit the same quality and craftsmanship Patagonia has always been know for.









Aluma Bar Boots: Were $239  Now $167


   When the Bar boots came out a few years ago we were all a bit unsure. After wearing these boots for several years, we know they are a great alternative to felt. The aluminum bars is soft enough to develop micro-abrasion which cuts through algae to the hard rock below. These boots stick like glue!








Simms Rivershed Boots   
Were $179   Now $125

 The Rivershed boot is a dependable, hard working boot. The soles do a great job by themselves but add some aluma bite or carbide studs and you will be unstoppable. Check out Alex's' review from a  year or two ago:

South Holston River Lodge Trip Report

    Several years ago the folks down at the South Holston River Lodge invited D&H down to visit and try out their operation. When the opportunity to plan a trip came up this spring, I jumped on it. To say the least, I was impressed by the whole experience.

   The fishing was great and the lodge and staff were wonderful.
