Located in the shadow of Mt. Tom in the outdoor town of Bishop, CA, just down the hill from Mammoth Lakes, the Sierra Trout Magnet Fly Shop (STM) is the center for business, the place where fishing information is exchanged, flies are tied and bought, rods and reels are strung up, and fishing trips are planned. The STM fly shop staff are known for their easy going nature and willingness to help any fisherman that comes through the doors to realize the fishing experience they want out of the Eastern Sierra.
With over 450 fly patterns and a wide array of fly fishing equipment we can set you up with the proper equipment and tackle for wherever your fly fishing destination might be, from locally in the Eastern Sierras to international destinations. Local fly patterns are tied in-shop by STM staff and we pick the best quality patterns from a variety of companies such as Umpqua, Solitude, Montana Fly, and various private tiers.
We also carry Rio tippets and leaders, Simms boots, waders and clothing, landing nets, Redington, Echo, Nautilus, Greys and Hardy are also brands you will see in the shop. A unique thing our shop also has is a variety of trout and flyfishing themed pottery in the form of vases, bowls, and coffee mugs. A tying bench is always busy and one can sometimes watch the patterns being tied for local waters right here in the shop.
