Mossy Creek Fly Fishing: Grand Re-opening

Maybe you’re already planning to attend the Trout Unlimited Annual Meeting in Roanoke, Va., next week. You should be – it’s going to be great. Maybe you’re planning to arrive a little early and do some fishing. Good idea! While you’re there, you must – repeat, MUST – visit Mossy Creek Fly Fishing in Harrisonburg, Va.

Brian and Colby Trow are twin brothers who opened Mossy Creek Fly Fishing in Harrisonburg in 2003. These guys are fly fishing veterans and conservation stalwarts. Colby started guiding and instructing in Virginia in 1999 and has fished almost every day since they opened for business. He started tying flies for local Virginia fly shops at age 13 and was featured at many fly-fishing trade shows through his teen years. To this day, when he isn’t fishing, he’s at the vise tying flies. Brian began fly fishing and tying at the age of 10. He has been teaching and guiding fly fisherman for 15 years.

Together, they’re involved with Trout Unlimited at local, regional and national levels. They share a passion for restoring the local waters, and for providing service to the greater fly fishing community on the boards of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing and the American Fly Fishing Trade Association. For Colby and Brian, engagement in fly fishing doesn’t stop at the shop door or even at the Shenandoah Valley. It’s much bigger than that. For these guys, there’s no real dividing line between their business, their service to the industry, to kids or to veterans, or to conservation. It’s all one great whole. And to make it even better, Mossy Creek Fly Fishing is now in a great new location at 480 East Market Street in Harrisonburg. Colby and Brian want to make their shop your fishing headquarters for the TU Annual Meeting.

The grand re-opening is scheduled for tomorrow, Sept. 23.
