Taos Fly Shop

Taos Fly Shop is a full service year round fly shop. It was the first fly shop in Taos, opened in 1980 by Taylor Streit. Taylor closed the shop in ’87 though he continued to guide the area while authoring three books on the subject. After a 17 year hiatus, Taylor’s son Nick re-opened the Taos Fly Shop in 2004. Nick still owns and operates the store while Taylor manages the guiding business, using the shop as his base.

The Reel Life has Fly-Fishing shops in both Taos & Santa Fe, New Mexico! We specialize in guiding public and private waters throughout northern New Mexico. Our full service fly shop is conveniently located inside the De Vargas Mall and stocks everything you need to make your next fishing trip a success. We guide full and half day trips on the Pecos, Chama, Rio Grande, Brazos, Jemez and more! In March of 2014 The Reel Life was purchased by Nick Streit and Ivan Valdez both Native New Mexicans and both with extensive experience fly fishing and guiding in the Santa Fe area. Nick also owns the Taos Fly Shop and has built a reputation as one of New Mexico's top guides.  Nick has guided and fished all over the world, cutting his teeth on rivers from Alaska to Argentina, not to mention the salt flats of the Caribbean.
