About 2nd Ave Fly Shop

133 Franklin Ave.
Des Moines, IA 50314

As Iowa's only dedicated fly-fishing pro-shop, Second Avenue has helped hundreds of anglers, both new and experienced, improve their casting, tying, and fishing skills.  Kathy (right) runs the shop while I devote my time to writing, teaching and, on a limited basis, outfitting customers and guiding.  Despite mounting pressure from a new wave of mega-stores, we still believe that fly fishers deserve the individual attention available at the few remaining "ma and pa" shops such as ours. Each page of our site has fishing photos, so take a moment to explore Iowa Fly Fishing right here.

Thanks for visiting -- we hope to see or hear from you soon.

Sincerely, Jene Hughes

Kathy maintains a large inventory featuring products from ORVIS, Cortland, Hoffman, and Rinzetti.
