Join us at the store for a cold beer or two and some excellent BBQ for this years Floodtide Festival! Like years past, we will be setting up in the parking lot "block party style" looking to have a good time.


This years raffles are even better than the last; you can expect to see some great prizes. We have fly rods from Sage, a Hatch reel, a bag from Fishpond and much more! In addition to great prizes we have some exceptional guest speakers this year! Raz Reid from Sage Fly Rods will be giving a casting clinic, Dave Schmezer will be inside tying some of his signature flies, and Captain John Bottko will be giving a seminar on Floodtide Fishing here in N.E. Florida! Beer will be provided by Champion Brands and Ballast Point Brewery.


All of the proceeds this year are being donated to Bull Sugar, so come out for a great time and help us raise funds and awareness for the water quality issues in South Florida. We look forward to seeing you!
