OUR STORY

“When I was 11 years old, a bunch of old guys taught me how to fly fish. These men are now some of my closest friends and have guided me through life. They brought me outside and showed me what fun it is to lose yourself in nature.

I wanted to do the same for others as they did for me. That is when I decided back in 2016 to launch The Fly Crate. We are a Monthly Fly Club and Online Fly Shop out of Pennsylvania that provides fly anglers with amazing trout flies, tips, and sweet stickers each month.” ~ Nathaniel Treichler

Since 2016, we’ve expanded across the entire United States and even remote parts of Canada with hundreds of members and thousands of customers. We could not be more proud and thankful for all the support.

We also support our community. Each month we donate flies to help rehabilitate disabled veterans and make annual donations to help support fly fishing youth camps.

“Many go fishing all their lives without knowing

that it is not fish they are after.” ~ Henry David Thoreau

Fly fishing is more than just catching fish. Practicing this art offers serenity and an escape from the troubles of daily life. Thanks to Project Healing Waters, veterans can now find their escape and support through fly fishing. Fly fishing changes lives.
