Hunter Banks first opened our doors in Asheville, North Carolina in February, 1985. Over the last 30 years our mission has remained true; to be the hub of fly fishing in Asheville and the surrounding mountains. As part of this mission we stock the store with only the highest quality gear because we understand the importance it has on your enjoyment of the sport. As a group of dedicated fly fisherman, we fish with the products we sell and back each.
Beyond the rods you see on the rack, the material hanging on the wall, or the flies in the bins, being the hub of fly fishing in Western North Carolina and beyond means we value education and support of the fly fishing community. From fly tying classes to on the water teaching, we thrive on introducing the sport to new anglers and honing the skills of those who are already addicted. Additionally, each year we make large monetary and time investments in several organizations that each serve different groups but ultimately breath life into fly fishing. These include Land O' Sky Trout Unlimited, Casting Carolinas, Project Healing Waters, and many more.
Wether you're new to fly fishing or have been stalking river banks for several decades, we will readily share our enthusiasm for the products we carry, streams we fish, and our passion for fly fishing.
