Since 2001 Our Story
Mainstream Outfitters is your local full-service fly-fishing shop. Are you tired of the impersonal experience of big box stores? Tired of getting blank stares when you ask the employees at the Sporting Goods counter a question about your fly fishing needs? Would you like to skip the fast pace and bad attitude that most of those retail giants offer… in favor of a friendly, welcoming, full-service fly-fishing shop? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Nestled in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, Mainstream Outfitters is owned and operated by Diane Louden, whose family have operated the adjacent Dave’s Sports Center for over sixty years.
Mainstream Outfitters was founded in the spring of 2001. It was clear the area needed resources dedicated to fly fishing. We sought to meet that demand, creating a space that catered to fly fisherman while offering them a better overall experience when they shopped, talked fishing, or just perused our shelves. We’ve been doing that ever since… and we’d be pleased to share your love of fly fishing with you. Come down and have a chat with us about our favorite subject… because it’s yours too. Mainstream Outfitters stands ready to help you with all your fly fishing needs.
The Windholz family has been involved in hunting, camping, and fishing for over sixty years. After founding Dave’s Sports Center in Doylestown in 1954, we identified the need for a dedicated space for fly fishermen in 2001. At the time, the space was used for selling boats and motors, and over the years, we gradually phased out that portion of our business. This left us free to devote ourselves to our core business at Dave’s — spin- and reel-fishing — while offering the area’s fly fishermen a welcoming, friendly space to shop for all their fly fishing needs. We even did some guiding when the store opened. We’d like the opportunity to do that again, as well as holding classes on fly fishing and related topics.
Would you like to join us? All you have to do is come on down to Mainstream Outfitters and share our love of fly fishing with us. Our parents worked alongside each other every day of their lives, instilling in us the love of camping, hunting, and fishing that we share to this day. Our multi-faceted retail space offers you fair, honest, and knowledgeable service from people who are part of this community and who won’t play games with you. You don’t spend six decades in hunting, camping, and fishing by accident. We’d love a chance to share the Mainstream Outfitters difference with you.
