The Taos Fly Shop was started in 1980 by Taylor Streit, author of three books including “Fly Fishing New Mexico.” The shop was closed in ’87 and after a “brief” hiatus, Taylor’s son Nick along with his wife Chrissy re-opened the store in 2004. Taylor continued his guide operation after closing the shop in the 80’s, and continues to own the guide service that operates from Taos Fly Shop. Nick handles most business things now, and has an impressive resume himself. A member of the 1998 Junior Fly Fishing Team USA, Nick has been guiding for over 20 years. He has fished and guided from Alaska to Argentina, and is known for his passion to teach anglers of all skill levels through classes and guiding. Nick also owns The Reel Life in Santa Fe.
