The Painted Trout is a sporting goods store with an emphasis on fly fishing -- and we think we're about the best there is at what we do. We're proud to offer everything from fly rods and reels to outdoor apparel for men and women to guided fishing trips and fishing lessons. Anything that you may need for your next fishing trip, whether you're a professional or a casual hobbyist, we're bound to have it for you. Beyond our extensive online store, we have a storefront in our hometown of Dexter, MI. Come visit us at 8063 Main St in downtown Dexter.
The Painted Trout started as a way for our owner, Lauren Kingsley, to sell her hand-painted silk-scarves with trout designs. Eventually she diversified her inventory by adding t-shirts, pajamas, and more, until she partnered with Dirk Fischhbach and opened the first storefront, named Bailiwicks Outdoors, in 2014. Eventually, the name was changed to The Painted Trout and the storefront was moved to its current location. Since then we've flourished as an outdoor enthusiast supplier by offering outstanding customer service. You'll also find everything from high-end outdoor apparel to fly fishing equipment, and we're looking forward to seeing how we continue expanding in the future.
