    - Paden Knight

  • The Patient Angler is an excellent full service fly shop. The owner, Peter Bower, and his two employees, Bob Coltrane and Caleb Reider, are knowledgeable, experienced and courteous individuals who are pleasant to deal with. All are good fly tiers, and the shop has a complete line of materials and tools. They are not hard sell and answer all of your questions regarding gear, fly tying and angling locations. I shop here at least twice monthly..

  • My husband and I really appreciated Peter's time and, yes, patience today when we took fly fishing 101 with him. I hope that this is the start of a new way of seeing rivers, bugs, and fish!
