The Fly Fishers Fly Shop and Frontiers: Your Gear Experts

Frontiers would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to Pat Ehlers, owner of The Fly Fishers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We are fortunate to work with some of the best fly shops throughout the country. What makes our connection with Pat and The Fly Fishers different is that we’ve known each other for almost thirty years starting with Pat hosting trips to Frontiers destinations for his customers. Since then, Pat and his family have grown their tackle business into one of the country’s best, and it seemed logical that we take our business relationship to the next level. It also seemed logical that we combine the expertise of the Frontiers Gear Team with someone that has the knowledge and ability to fulfill the tackle needs of our clients for their upcoming trip. Pat and our Gear Team are always available to speak with you about preparing for your next adventure.
