Welcome to Mossy Creek Fly Fishing

Virginia Fly Fishing Shop and Guide Services
Come experience the best fly fishing Virginia has to offer! Our fly shop is located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley only minutes away from spring creek brown trout on the famous Mossy Creek. We are also surrounded by wild brook trout in the freestone mountain streams of The George Washington National Forest and Shenandoah National Park. We fish for Smallmouth bass, musky, and carp on the Shenandoah and James Rivers. Our shop also manages many stretches of private trophy trout water on local spring creeks and rivers. Private and corporate fly fishing lessons and clinics are available at our schools in Harrisonburg or Wintergreen Resort, Virginia. Our store stocks Orvis, Simms, Patagonia, Fishpond, Redington, Umpqua, Montana Fly, Brodin, C&F, Rio, NRS, Tenkara, Renzetti, Wapsi, Rumpf, Spirit River, Kreinik, and many more great products. We have the largest selection of fly tying material in the state. Whether you are looking for big browns, rainbows, or brook trout, our expert staff and guides will help you plan a trip to remember. Come experience Virginia Fly Fishing at its best.

Spawn is upon us! The big fish are moving to their spawning areas right now. Please fish responsibly this time of year. Don't hammer the fish too hard and please return them quickly to the water near where you hook them. We want to ensure a successful spawn in all of our favorite spots!

The brook trout fishing has turned on and it has been great! Water flows are awesome from all the recent rain and snow. Big nymphs and small streamers are getting it done! Have fun up in the hills!
