We founded Dodson Fishing Company to make fly fishing accessible for all. From beginner to expert our welcoming environment provides a place for you to grow your love of the sport. We strive to be a “no judgement” zone offering great products and valuable advice — without acting like we invented the sport.
Great products. Attentive customer service. Respect for all. This is what we’re all about.
Jeff Furman Jeff began his fly fishing obsession at 12 years old while growing up in the Northeast. Early adulthood brought him south to the Appalachian mountains where he refined his fly fishing technique. When Jeff is not working in the fly shop he can be found fishing, guiding, and hosting trips all over the world; Wyoming, Argentina, and the Florida Keys have been his latest adventures. Jeff is excited to bring his knowledge and expertise to Dodson. If you’re looking to learn a new knot, tie a hot fly pattern or just need a good laugh, come by the shop and see Jeff.
