Our Shop

The San Juan Angler is one of three full-service fly shops located in Colorado that are owned and operated by Frying Pan Anglers. In addition to our Durango location, we also have Frying Pan Anglers in Basalt, CO and The South Platte Fly Shop in Woodland Park, CO.

We are conveniently located upstairs on the corner of Main Ave and College St in the center of downtown Durango. Our local rivers are anywhere from 10 minutes to 1-hour drive from our front door. Durango is ideally situated between the mountains and high desert offering a great diversity of fishing opportunities.

Whether you are a beginner, avid angler, or just curious about fly fishing, we would love to have you visit our shop. You will experience a friendly, knowledgeable staff that is eager to share information on our local waters and recommend patterns and tactics that will help you catch fish.

We have an extensive array of products with well-recognized brand names that will fit any budget. Our shop prides itself on having the largest selection of flies in the four corners region.

We hope to see you at The San Juan Angler before your next fly fishing adventure!
