About Us

Whitetail Country Fly Shop & Outfitter is the West Branch’s newest full-service destination fly shop. Located on the West Branch of the Delaware River, the best wild trout fishery in the Eastern US, Whitetail Fly Shop boasts direct access to the river, via the Shehawken, PA Public Access Ramp. Just minutes from the center of Hancock, NY, Whitetail is a convenient one-stop shop for anglers!

Mark Heister grew up fly fishing in the area with his parents and brothers and later introduced it to his wife and children. After 25 years of visiting the region, the Heisters, who also own Whitetail Country Sports World in Olean, NY, decided the Upper Delaware River needed a destination shop. The shop offers world-class knowledge and service and carries all major brands. Store manager, Dave Hess brings with him, many years in the fly fishing retail industry, as-well-as a broad knowledge of fly fishing and spey fishing.

In addition to providing full-service fly shop, Whitetail is home to Cross Current Guide Service, an Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Guide Service. Cross Current’s Captain Joe Demalderis and his licensed guides offer Guided Drift Boat and Wade Fishing Trips.
