Opening Day message 2020
To our friends in the Fly Fishing Community,
Tomorrow is Opening Day of Trout Fishing in New York. This day which is normally celebrated within the Fly Fishing and Trout fishing communities will slip by almost unnoticed due to the very uncertain times we are in.
Baxter House wants to assure you that we take the health and well-being of our community, customers, and associates very seriously. Like you, we're closely monitoring the quickly developing effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we will practice social distancing. We have temporarily closed our store to protect and care for those who work with us, our customers, and the public.
We will miss seeing you in our store, but we're still open online 24/7, where service remains uninterrupted. You can also find us on our social channels to keep updated.
Most of our guiding still falls within the current guidelines of social distancing but we do not plan on offering trips until the ban on non essential business is lifted. We will reevaluate the feasibility of guided fly Fishing trips in late April and contact those who have trips booked then. We are still taking tentative bookings for the prime months of May and June as well as for Summer and Fall 2020
We are all in this together. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will follow guidance from public health officials and government agencies, so we can continue to support our customers and communities as needed.
For more information about COVD-19 and what you can do to keep healthy and safe, visit the Centers for Disease Control at cdc.gov or your local health department's website.
