The late Ned Grey helping a customer at Sierra Tackle, one of the early LA fly shopsA good fly shop can be key to getting started, and finding out the latest in tackle and techniques. Southern California does not have a lot of shops, given the size of our population, but the ones we do have are top notch.

This is not intended to be a comprehensive list. We left off fly shops that are in the inland areas, such as San Bernardino and Imperial counties, unless they specifically mention support for coastal and / or offshore fly fishing in SoCal.
