The Idaho Angler opened its doors in June, 1993, in downtown Boise. The shop was founded by four friends, all long time, avid fly fishers: Joy and Don Knickrehm, Ken Pursley and John Croner (each with successful careers in other endeavors). The shop was borne out of our experience in fly fishing the western U.S., Alaska and various salt water destinations. We had observed some great shops around the country, and surveying the Boise/Southwest Idaho scene, we formed a vision for a great fly shop here in the Treasure Valley. The Idaho Angler would provide great customer service and fishing information, offer classes on a continuing basis to all levels of fly fishers (and especially fly fishers-to-be), offer a full and extensive array of great products, and offer a pleasant, open and friendly-to-all store environment. The shop features an extensive fly tying materials and tools department.
