We take your fishing seriously. We also take the coronavirus situation seriously. We feel that proceeding with “safety first” as a guiding principal is the reasonable and prudent thing to do.
Beginning Friday, May 1st our doors will be open to one customer at a time. Two members of a single household are perfectly acceptable. A private shopping experience will allow you to browse our selection while feeling comfortable and adhering to social distancing guidlines that are still in effect. Please understand that we still encourage you to call or email us with your order and use our pick-up window, as this is by far the lowest contact way to shop. Or take advantage of our free local delivery.
Here’s how in-store shopping will work:
Our hours of operation will remain 10-6 Mon-Sat, 10-2 Sun. We will be wearing masks and politely ask that if you have a mask please wear yours as well. When you get to the front doors there will be a table with hand sanitizer on it. Please apply before touching the door handle, and again after you leave. When we have a cusotmer in the shop we’ll post a sign on the front door to let you know. Please be patient, or feel free to come around to our pick-up window located next to the ice machine. Please notice the blue tape on the floor surrounding the sales counter and please observe the six foot distancing rule.
To practice best health and safety protocol our staff will:
- Wear masks when customers are in the shop
- Use hand sanitizer liberally throughout the day
- Wash hands thoroughly at every appropriate opportunity
- Sanitize your credit / debit card as you hand it to us and again before handing it back to you
- If hand santizer was a spice, we’ll use extra spice during cash transactions
- Wipe down products with disinfectant before handing them to you
For five weeks now the shop has been operating exclusively through a pick-up window. It has worked out very well. If you know what you want, or have an idea, call or email us with orders and we’ll have them sanitized and ready for you when you get here. If you just want to drop by the window before placing an order that’s fine too.
Free Local Delivery
Remember, we’re offering free local in Bend. If you’d prefer not to leave your home, don’t hesitate to ask.
Our online store at bendflyshop.com
is always open. We’ve temporarily waived our $50 minimum order for free shiping in the lower 48. You can also select “local pick-up” or “delivery” during check out. We have lots of inventory that isn’t up on the website yet, like flies and tying materials and supplies. Don’t see it online? Just call or email.
Moving forward with caution and confidence…
Please understand that these measures of caution are to keep everyone healthy, and we believe this is the best way to move forward with confidence.
Thank you so much for your support through these crazy times. We are lucky to be surrounded by such an awesome community.
Stay home. Tie flies.
Chris, Cairn, and Dave
