    SINCE 1976
 

It was in 1976 that Dick Ackourey's Fly Tyer's Den and Tackle Shop came into being.

What started out as a hobby for dick slowly became a family business.

Our doors opened in the spring of 1976 on Welles Street in Forty Fort, PA.  We began in a one room occupancy selling only flies and fly tying materials such as hooks, feathers, custom made blends, deer tails, and grizzly necks, just to name a few.

Dick would sit at his bench and tie flies at random and on order.  Customers enjoyed the personalization of it all.  They enjoyed talking to Dick and getting tips on how to be patient catching that big fish, and using the right fly to do it.  Customers would come back and buy more of the same fly after being successful.

   
Joining Dick in the shop were his wife Yvonne, and two of his sons, Joe and Dan.  After three years in business Dick decided he needed a larger establishment.  He came across an old barn in Luzerne, PA where he could imagine what he and his family could do to make this a quaint and welcoming place, and he was right.  With an old fashioned wood burner and all of Dicks antique lures and fishing pictures hanging for all to enjoy it became as welcoming as he had envisioned.
   
Whether you are a beginner, serious hobbiest, or a seasoned professional, Dick Ackourey & Sons has over 50 years of knowledge to serve you.
