Fishing in DePaul


Select Local Merchants

It's easy to miss Dan's Tackle Service & Fly Fishing Gear, a shop marked only by a sign that reads Open. Come in; however, for fishermen and fisherwomen, this spot is worth a bit of extra searching. That's because, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, “anything a fisherman needs — hip waders and boots to fishing cloves and BluBlocker shades — Pieczonka’s got it in stock.” Dan Pieczonka is the owner of Dan's Tackle Service & Fly Fishing Gear and a passionate fisherman who cast his first line at the age of 4 into Montrose Harbor. He began crafting custom fly-fishing rods in 1970 and, in 1981, opened his shop in the upstairs apartment of his childhood home. A Vietnam veteran who also served in the navy, Dan has cast lines into bodies of water across the world. He can recommend the best fishing spots not only in and around Chicago but also in places like Saskatchewan and the Bahamas.

Sound Excursions describes their carefully curated group experiences as "field trips for adults." It's easy to see why: every outing takes groups to a new realm of Washington, whether it's the frothy shores of Puget Sound, inland forests and mountains, or tables at Seattle's thriving restaurants. The events held at these diverse locations range from culinary workshops on topics such as sushi-making and moonshine-tasting, to adventurous excursions with whitewater rafting or kayaking, to laid-back themed party cruises. For many outings, luxury transportation is provided.
