READ OUR NEW POLICIES BELOW
MANDATORY READING AND COMPLIANCE FOR CUSTOMERS
WE ARE ENCOURAGING EVERYONE TO CONTINUE PURCHASING THEIR ITEMS ONLINE OR OVER THE PHONE FOR CURB-SIDE PICK-UP AND SHIPPING. PLEASE AVOID UNNECESSARY VISITS INTO THE STORE IF AT ALL POSSIBLE
PLEASE PRIORITIZE VISITS FOR REASONS SUCH AS THE FITTING OF WADERS, WADING BOOTS, CLOTHING, ROD AND REEL PURCHASES, THINGS THAT YOU MUST BE IN THE SHOP FOR AND THAT CANNOT BE DONE ONLINE OR OVER THE PHONE
EVERY VISIT YOU MAKE TO THE SHOP PUTS US AT RISK OF
BEING EXPOSED TO COVID-19
PLEASE DEEPLY CONSIDER IF YOU NEED TO VISIT IN-PERSON
Purchasing any goods in a fly shop is a very intimate experience. Being fit for waders, wading boots, and other clothing, you come into close contact with our employees. When in the aisles searching for fly tying supplies you are face to face with product and you can bump into other customers easily, when we are demonstrating how to use gear, or how to tie a knot, it is usually up-close and personal. When we are giving advice on where to fish, explaining a technique, or telling a story, we are projecting what is in ourselves out to you, the same is when you speak to us.
There are a number opportunities in a single visit to a fly shop to pass on any cold or flu, and in particular in this case Covid-19 is a very real concern.
This is why these new policies are instated.
The situation around Covid-19 is constantly evolving, and so are we. Policies that are in effect one day, may me modified the next -
keep tuned to our website for any changes.
IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY AS A CUSTOMER TO KEEP OUR SHOP STAFF SAFE, IT IS ALSO OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO KEEP YOU AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE WHILE AT DRIFT
THIS IS NOT THE WAY WE WANT TO OPERATE,
BUT IT IS HOW WE HAVE TO OPERATE FOR NOW
WE LOOK FORWARD TO GETTING BACK TO A NEAR-NORMAL STATE EVENTUALLY, AND TO WELCOME YOU INTO OUR SHOP AS WE ALWAYS HAVE
THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMPLIANCE AND UNDERSTANDING
Unfortunately we need to be very direct and concise with our wording and policies as we have experienced less than pleasant encounters with individuals attempting to push past us into the shop, who are choosing not comply with, or are ignoring, our policies.
Retailers have the right to refuse entry or eject individuals from their shop if they are putting the safely and security of their employees and customers at risk.
