And moved to Montana.
Now another “Bob” has moved back from the West to take over the shop … and care for its longtime customers.
The other morning, an old-timer collection of these self-anointed fishing experts — aka the Lost Boys — gathered at the shop as they long have, sipping coffee and bragging about fish caught, those yet to be caught and the flies that might catch them.
Among regulars in this bunch are Bill Spiess, Dennis Hook, Dick Schwartz, Patrick Daly, Vic Mason and Bob Nasby.
“Bob [Hawkins] is a real credit to the fly fishing community,” Nasby said. “He’s doing a great job with the shop.”
First-time visitors to the new, expanded Bob Mitchell’s also are common. Some walk in the door to buy, others to learn about fly tying, casting or other skills necessary to hook fish.
Interested anglers can register for classes on these and other topics on the shop’s website, bobmitchellsflyshop.com.
“A little later this spring — the date hasn’t been set yet — we plan to have a grand opening,” Hawkins said. “Everyone’s welcome.”
