Tulpehocken Creek Outfitters first opened its doors on December 5th, 1990 by Tony Gehman in Reading, (West Lawn) Pennsylvania. The fly shop was built on a passion for the sport of fly-fishing and the local tailwater and namesake of the company, the Tulpehocken Creek. As the business grew, the company became known as TCO Fly Shop. Over the past 30 years, multiple stores were added. TCO Fly Shop now conducts business through 4 locations in Pennsylvania and worldwide through a website that has been growing since the early days of the internet. Throughout 30 years of change, a few things have remained untouched. The vision that Tony had in 1990 has remained untarnished. That vision was to create a fly shop that had the best customer experience coupled with the most knowledgeable team around. A store that was welcoming to the beginner as it was to the advanced angler. As TCO continues to grow, you can count on the fact that we will always give everything we have to you, the customer and that fly fishing will always be our passion. Thank you for 30 grateful years.
"I am Grateful for all the love and support of our amazing staff and clients over the last 30 years... and look forward to many more"
- Tony Gehman, President & Founder of TCO Fly Shop
