AnglerNorth.com is a website dedicated to learning fly fishing, and
selling the equipment that you need to get started. We specialize in
selling starter kits and teaching people how to use them. We release
articles that are for beginners and pro’s alike. We also
welcome any guest contributions to our blog!
This site is a small release for our constant desire to fish. At least
when it’s too cold or impractical to fish, we can come to the
site and talk about it with our friends, and you!
How We’re Different
As a small company, we can offer very personalized service to our
customers, and spend time (both through our blog and through email or
phone contact) making sure that our customers are successful with their
fly fishing experience, and that they like or love our products. You
can’t get that with a company like Orvis or Cabellas. We sell
a feature set of products that cater to the needs of beginners, with
slightly fewer options for seasoned anglers. We will probably expand
this in the future, but we don’t have plans for that right
We have personality. Because we’re not a big stuffy corporate
outfit, we can be more straightforward with you about most things.
We’re like the Jim Cramer for fly fishing, without going
overboard. We’re excited to talk about fly fishing, and that
comes through in almost all of our writing (emails, blog posts, etc).
We have the ability to be a bit more cutting edge. We will post photos,
video, podcasts, and other cutting edge media formats that the bigger
companies have been lazy to implement. This should make the experience
more fun for all of us!
Meet The Team
fly fishing pro, writer, and all around “do-er” on
the AnglerNorth team. Significantly less lazy than Nick and Joe!
Experienced fly-fisherman, teacher, shipping and receiving department,
and the guy who screams the loudest when the website doesn’t
Regularly hooks himself and others around him, teacher, writer, and the
half-assed techy running this website.
Why We’re Here
AnglerNorth.com came out of my (Nick) desire to learn to fly fish. Yes,
I know it sounds selfish, but if you think that sounds bad, check out
the more specific reasons (in no particular order):
- I saw people fly fishing near a lake home that my parents
purchased. I stayed and watched a little while, and it seemed liked a
lot of fun.
- I searched the web and tried to figure out if I would like
- I looked for a starter kit so that I could try fly fishing
without breaking the bank.
- I wanted to learn the basics of fly fishing without
spending a lot of money on a casting class or something like that. I
didn't want to bother people I know that fly fish with something I was
unsure if I would pursue. I didn't want to waste their time teaching me
to fish if I wasn't going to like it.
- I was disgusted at some of the prices of fly fishing
equipment. Fly fishing can be a real "elitist" sport, and because of
that prices are awfully high for beginners unless you start at a garage
sale. Even if you start at a garage sale, how do you know everything
that you need to buy? (HINT: check out our checklist!)
- I knew that I hated regular fishing. Throwing out some
bait, and eating a sandwich while waiting for a fish to bite
isn’t my idea of a good time. Plus I always screw up those
- I tried fly fishing and I really enjoyed it.
- I teamed up with some experts and build this site so that
you wouldn't go through the same thing.
Now we provide articles, videos, illustrations, and other things that
help you learn to fly fish! We also sell starter kits (and some really
nice high end fly reels!) and all the equipment that you need to get
started, and keep fly fishing if you like it.
We offer a community to discuss, teach, brag about, and just generally
have fun with fly fishing!
Plans for the future
We want AnglerNorth.com to become a hub for fly fishing in the near
future. While we have certain plans, we’re not even entirely
sure what this means just yet!
We believe that fly fishing is a health activity for all ages. We think
that it can bring families together in a much better, tighter, cooler
way than TV and video games can, and we’d like to see more
people start to fly fish.
We generally practice catch and release – except for when
we’re hungry! We think that there are some areas that are
over fished, and we will probably never take fish from those
We want to protect the environment, and we regularly donate portions of
our good luck (revenue from this site) to various charities that
support the environment. We are thinking about joining 1 percent for
the planet, but we like the ability to donate to different charities at
