Testimonials

  • Best fly shop in Bend. It’s where the local's go... Always helpful and get you set up so you can spend more time on the water. Can't say enough about the customer service, they aren't in it just to make a buck, but truly care about getting you out enjoying fishing at every level. Thanks Guys!

  • 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..
