While it’s not breaking news, one of the South’s oldest fly fishing shops in now comfortably settled in at their new location in Atlanta. Earlier this year before a major interstate bridge collapsed, the Fish Hawk relocated to present plush abodes at 764 Miami Circle, Atlanta. The disaster made it tough to get there quickly, but the bridge is back. If you haven’t been there yet, prepare to be dazzled.
“The move was a very positive thing,” says Gary Merriman, founder of Georgia’s premier fly fishing shop. “The new location has 5,000 square feet compared to the old shop where we had 4,200 square feet. That’s not a huge increase, but the new lay out is far superior. Parking is much easier too. The staff and customers are happy with the quiet and eye appeal of the new location.”
