A&G Outfitters is no stranger to this site. While the shop is a little bit of a drive from the Binghamton area, it's well worth the drive. This Orvis Authorized Dealer represents what all fly shops should be - a well-stocked store for outfitting anglers, a center of local fly fishing information and knowledge, located literally steps from a blue ribbon trout fishery, and a fly shop that promotes itself constantly with informative events that apply to all aspects of our sport.
Welcome spring! A&G Outfitters will kick-off spring with some great events, as follows:
- A night with Mike Schultz - Mike is owner of Schultz Outfitters in Michigan, and as such is an experienced fly tier, guide, and expert fly fisherman with species we encounter in our local area: smallmouth bass, carp, steelhead, trout, and salmon. Mike will speak on new and improved streamers and presentations. Many of mike's flies can be found on Orvis.com. Tickets to this great event are $20 RSVP and $25 at the door. Food and refreshments will be provided and there will be raffles and prizes as well. Doors open for this event at the fly shop at 5 pm and the event starts at 6 pm.
- A morning with Henry Ramsey - Henry is author of "Matching Major Eastern Hatches" and is an awesome fly tier and master entomologist. Henry will be tying his favorite patterns that are proven in our area. Admission to this event at the fly shop is free. Doors open at 9 am and the event starts at 10 am. The first 10 attendees receive a special prize and all-you-can-eat & drink is offered for a very nominal $5.
In addition to this great event, the fly shop will offer the following great deals:
- 20% off all rod/reel/line outfits (excluding Encounter & SF Glass outfits).
- Test cast the new Superfine Glass rods and receive $25 off a purchase of $50 or more coupon (good Saturday only).

- Test cast a Helios 2 rod with a new Bank Shot line and you'll have your name entered into the Orvis Destination Sweepstakes. The grand prize winner will receive a free trip to an exotic Orvis Destination Lodge!
Spring is upon us! What better way to spend a weekend than to attend one or more of these great A&G events. Kick it up a notch and make a full weekend of it - reserve a room at some of the very nice local hotels, enjoy the shop and the events Friday night and Saturday morning, and fish the Lackawanna River Saturday afternoon and Sunday while you're there!
