History of Duranglers

EPSON scanner imageDuranglers Fly Shop and Supplies had its humble beginning in 1983 when John Flick and Tom Knopick opened the San Juan region’s first and only full service fly shop and guide service. Tom and John had met nine years earlier as freshman in college and quickly began dreaming of making fly fishing their life. The dream became a reality December 10th, 1983 when Duranglers opened its doors in downtown Durango. Duranglers has come a long way from when Tom and John tied every fly they sold and built every rod. After 15 great years in the basement of the Newman building, Duranglers main shop relocated to a brand new location! Visit Duranglers big, bright Durango location is at 923 Main Avenue.
