Silver Creek Spotlight: Men’s Retail and Sporting Gear in Western North Carolina
Brookings Outfitters Says “Go Outside and PLAY!”
Perfectly perched in the popular resort village of Cashiers (a little slice of Heaven seemingly custom designed for any outdoor enthusiast), Brookings is proud to be Western North Carolina’s premier outfitter. This shop offers just about everything a sportsman might need – from clothing, to footwear, to fishing and hunting supplies – heck, they even have everything man’s best friend might need, as well. An Orvis-endorsed outfitter, Brookings is owned and operated by true “outdoorsy” types – all experienced hunters, fishermen, outfitters and guides. In addition to their retail services, Brookings offers fly fishing schools and lessons, as well as guided day trips to the Davidson and Tuckasegee Rivers – two of Western North Carolina’s best known trout rivers. Brookings’ guides can also advise the would-be fisherman and hunter on the very best places in the area to fish and hunt (trust us, they’ve done their research), as well as the basics like where to get a fishing permit, outline the dates of local hunting seasons, and check out the current river levels & conditions.
Newly opened, the Brookings Lodge offers the ideal get-away for a group of fly fishermen, hunters or those who just wish to enjoy the natural splendor of the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau. The Lodge is a beautifully restored historic cabin in a private, hillside setting mere steps from the eclectic shops and fine dining of Cashiers Village. Lodge amenities include 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, full kitchen, dining room, a wood burning fireplace, game room, and outdoor fireplace. Special accommodation packages are available with all inclusive guide services and combined discounted lodging rates for a terrific “base camp” at the heart of any outdoor expedition.

Brookings is located behind Tommy’s Coffee Shop on 107 South. They look forward to helping you suit up to go outside and PLAY!
