2018 Open House Celebrating 20 Years!!

Saturday March 4th, 2018

20 years ago, Matt Paulson and Jeff Dahl opened a small fly shop in south Superior. Located in a small storefront next to the barber shop, the Superior Fly Angler was the first dedicated fly shop in the Twin Ports. Since then we’ve moved three times and grown into one of the Midwest’s premier fly shops. Other shops have come and gone (some more than once). But thanks to you, we’ve slowly grown into the well stocked and friendly shop that you’ve helped us create. If you’ve never been here, March 4th is the perfect day to stop in and get to know us.

Please come and celebrate our 20th anniversary at out annual Open House on Saturday March 4th. This is the best day at the shop. Stop by and meet your fellow fly fishermen. Visit with old friends. Make new friends. Have some of Matt’s home made venison chili or any of several other snacks. Feel free to enjoy lunch or a snack and bring a snack to share if you like.

Besides the fun and festivities, this is a great opportunity to see the newest products from Simms, Redington, Sage and many more of our vendors. We will have special pricing on many items in the store in honor of our 29th Anniversary.

Make sure to stop in and sign up for a chance to win a new pair of Simms Headwaters waders!

















                               Come and see us at the Great Waters Fly Expo


Mark your calendar. We have a BIG month of March planned. The weekend after our 20th Anniversary Open House SFA will be traveling to the Twin Cities to attend the Trout Unlimited Great Waters Fly Expo. This event can really only be described as the Midwest’s celebration of fly fishing.

Come and see us March 18-20 in White Bear lake MN. Bring your family and spend the weekend. There’s lots to do and see. We will be in booth 117. We will have many closeout and sale items for sale at discounts up to 50% off!

This is a can’t miss event.
