What is Covey & Nye?

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, a Covey is a flock of small birds, particularly partridge.

As for a Nye?

Within the context of the sporting world, a nye refers to a brood of pheasants.

Inspired by English-style upland bird hunting, and its associated traditions and camaraderie, the founders of Covey & Nye envisioned a place to find everything one needs for sporting. From field boots and tweeds to shotguns, we aim to provide the highest quality and most unique selection of sporting apparel and accessories available on this side of “the pond”.
