Testimonials

  • 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..

  • Always get great service, plus a warm welcome, fishing/casting advice and great stories! Great fly tying tips as well.

  • My wife and I visited Bend in early August for a few days of fly fishing. We enjoyed catching our fair share of trout on the Deschutes, the Metolius and the Crooked. A key to our success was the great professional and personal support we received from Peter and eveyone on the staff. The Patient Angler team gave us a detailed briefing of the fishing conditions in each river, the best flies and techniques to use and the best times to fish. We also purchased two superb pairs of wading boots to replace ours, which were badly worn and in a state of disrepair. If you are a fly fisher in Bend, the Patient Angler is a must.

  • 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!

  • Very helpful will answer any of your questions no matter how silly. I'm not from the area and was looking for some direction and advice and I did not leave disappointed. I will visit this fly shop every time I return to bend from now on.
