Andy Thornal Company

Andy Thornal Company has been selling high quality outdoor apparel, sporting goods, shoes, fine clothing, jewelry and luggage in downtown Winter Haven since 1945.

Have you ever been to a candy store and felt overwhelmed by the amount of choices, in awe by the beautiful colors and shapes, and disappointed that you can’t have everything? That’s how it feels to visit Andy Thornal Company in downtown Winter Haven. A beautiful rainbow of canoes hang from the ceiling, rolls of sleeping bags line tables like billowy clouds and the scent of fine leather is in the air.

Andy Thornal Company

You’ll find standard camping and fishing gear plus fly rods, canoes, flannels, Costa sunglasses, Yeti coolers and leather goods. Ladies will love shopping for hand crafted and fine jewelry, apparel lines such as Vineyard Vines, and popular brands of sandals and shoes.

While no one on staff carries the title of personal stylist, they are always willing to offer advice, whether it be which canoe is right for you, or which shirt you should buy your spouse, friend or child.

Fly Fishing Classes

The shop, which stocks an awesome array of fly rods, ties, tippets, leaders and more, also hosts introductory fly-fishing classes for children age 10 and older.
