O’Neill’s Irish Flies
This online business is dedicated to all aspects of fly fishing. It was founded two years ago by Tim O’Neill, of Hockessin, who began fly fishing at the age of 10 and managed Delaware’s only full-service fly shop from 2009 to 2014. “When you say ‘fly fishing,’” says O’Neill, “most people get a vision of a guy in a tweed jacket standing in the middle of a river catching trout. While Trout are certainly one of the fish we chase with fly gear, there are a multitude of other opportunities out there. The shad migration, or ‘shad run,’ is an example. The peak of the run is usually in early May. Fishing for shad is not very technical and catches can reach 100 fish per day.”

Kylie Lip Kit
I received the Kylie Lip Kit as a gift last month and fell in love with it. At $29, it’s inexpensive compared to other cosmetics and it comes with a lip liner and a lipstick. Made by Kylie Jenner, it’s formulated to moisten your lips and create a color that’s guaranteed to last all day. The six colors have been selling out in record time. For more information visit kyliecosmetics.com.

Arena’s Sandwich Night
Relatively new to Newark and originally from Rehoboth, Arena’s Deli and Bar on Main Street is one of my favorite laid-back sandwich shops. Sandwich night is a weekly promotion where sandwiches are half-price after 6 p.m. Growing up in Sussex County, I spent many Wednesday nights eating the “California Club Dude” sandwich.

Petal Pushers (Floral Designs by Alexis)
Although I’ve known Alexis since childhood, I just recently saw her talent first-hand. Like
any other deadbeat husband, I needed to find some last minute gifts for Valentine’s Day. Remembering Alexis had opened a retail location in Trolley Square Shopping Center, I decided to swing by. Absolutely beautiful arrangements, unique options and affordable prices. petalpushersdel.com
