What's Up at Old Au Sable Fly Shop?

We've certainly heard all the rumors and scuttlebutt about our own shop, and it's time to offer a bit of clarity. No, there isn't a Bass Pro outlet going up on our site, and no, there's no truth to the rumor that we're switching from a fly shop to a 1950s theme hotel/restaurant. All false.

What we're actually doing was summed up nicely by Jeff on our Facebook page the other day:

Many folks at the MFFC fly fishing expo this weekend asked about our construction project.

We've been working on our business expansion plans for quite a while, which includes our new internet platform as well as fixing up our buildings. So to quash some of the inaccurate info, here’s the scoop.

We bought the building across the street which will house our offices as well as our shipping & receiving area. The interior is nearly done and we’re setting up the offices over there now. We’re also storing everything there too as we complete the remodel of the fly shop.

The area in the fly shop that housed our offices and shipping & receiving are becoming an educational center. We’re also opening up the floor plan and installing all new mechanical's and generally making the building a bit more conducive to what we do.

Joe Reed (thanks Joe!) suggested that we post pics as we work through the project, so that’s what we’re going to do.

We will re-open the fly shop on April 15th with the exterior being completed shortly thereafter.

So here’s some pics!

And, as promised, here are those pics (if you didn't catch them on Facebook already):
