Here at Sun Valley Outfitters our goal is to be the place where first-time anglers can walk in and feel entirely welcome while the life-long angling addict can also find a place they call home. We can talk all the jargon with the person who wants the best beta on what to use and when to go, but we can also make the novice feel comfortable and included as they dip a toe into a new sport.
Our fly-shop, nestled in downtown Ketchum Idaho is the launching point to days of fun on the Big Wood, Big Lost, Silver Creek and other waters in the area. If you are an angler just looking for gear, we are Idaho’s only Orvis Endorsed Outfitter and we have all the best gear from Orvis and others. Our experienced anglers working in the store can get you all the info and gear you need to get out and have an incredible day on our famous waters. We also have an incredible selection of clothing from FreeFly, Orvis and others, meaning we have gear for more than just the anglers in your group.
If you are looking for a guided adventure (first-timer or seasoned angler looking for some local guidance) our experienced guides can get you out on the water and teach you the basics or just give you the local advice that will help you find your fish. If you have the family with you, sign up to add a “Rascal Wrangler” to your party and we will have a junior guide who specializes in working with those younger folks while you have a great time with a senior guide. This way you can all fish together while having an experience perfect for each of you.
Finally, if you are looking to just give fly-fishing a try or to pick up some new skills, you can check out our fly-tying classes or intro-to-fishing women’s clinics. These can be the perfect jump off points for anyone looking to start their angling passion or just looking to build some skills.
At Sun Valley Outfitters we are passionate about fly-fishing in the Ketchum area. Anglers ourselves, when we are not in the store or guiding trips we are out fishing and we love having the chance to share this sport and this place with others. So come by the store or sign up for a guided trip today and see why Ketchum is such famous fly-fishing destination.
