River Bay Outfitters

Baldwin, NY

I have known Paul McCain for well over 15 years, long before he was in the fly shop business.  He has been one of those guys who is always teaching, always guiding, always helping out – and never looking for anything in return.  That is just who he is.

His fly shop – River Bay Outfitters has moved to larger quarters at 980 Church Street, Baldwin, NY. He is still teaching, guiding and giving of himself as the shop has become a clubhouse, a place to go tie flies on a rainy day. A place where you can learn how to tie, or anything else. A place that you can broker your extra rod through – or pick up a new one. A comfortable place run by a comfortable fellow.  He also carries all of my books – How to Fly Fish for Trout and the complete Letters to Mack series!


His shop is about 50 miles from my house – and I find myself there more than you’d expect.  Do yourself a favor and stop by to say hello, have a cup of coffee and swap lies.
