Being immersed in the fly fishing industry, I am lucky enough to visit some incredible stores across Australia. Perhaps more importantly, I get to talk fly fishing with some of the best characters in the game. Aussie Angler is situated in the suburb of Greensborough, Melbourne and has been in business for 30 odd years, providing unparalleled service to their customers new and old.
Rick and Jo Dobson run their shop with such hospitality as soon as you step foot inside, you'll feel right at home. With conversation constantly flowing, the kettle always hot and one of the largest selections of fly fishing gear, I can guarantee you're in good hands.
Their staff have decades of experience behind the counter and can kit you out for any trip, local or abroad. Fly fishing specialist, Ollie Van Kalken is always on the water experimenting with new ways to catch fresh and saltwater species, while his own Murray cod flies prove to be killer across Victoria.
If you're in the area, do yourselves a favour and stop in for a chat with Rick, Jo and the boys. No matter how experienced you are in the world of fly fishing, you'll come away with something new.
