Anglers Den: Anglers helping other anglers catch more fish

Years ago, someone commented to me their surprise at how much time I spent at a visit to Anglers Den in Roy.“It’s just a tackle shop,” I believe they told me. Probably my spouse. It was also noted in the conversation that I am one of the most decisive and motivated shoppers in just about any store that I enter. Decidedly motivated to get in and get out, is more like it. After a few decades of working in retail, whomever said that about me was absolutely correct, with very few exceptions. Let me tell you about one of my favorite exceptions.

When you set foot inside Anglers Den, you realize“I’ve come to the right place.” That’s how I felt upon my first visit and it’show I hear others describe it, time and time again for theirs. Sadly, we live in a world where I have observed quality service and good selection within a singular shopping location gradually becoming more fond memory than present reality. When I walk into a shop like Anglers Den and catch that first glimpse of the depth of their selection, followed quickly by a genuine, welcoming greeting by one of their staff, I can’t help thinking to myself, I’m glad that places like this are still around.

They are a true, full-service shop. Anglers Den and the staff, who are there to help you, can provide you with the right gear, great advice and insight, which can help you put together the right solution for your time on the water. Their inventory of rods, reels,lures and all the other gear and accessories that you would need or want has always set me up for success. Never once in probably 15 years of patronage, have I felt that I was being “sold” something. In all of my purchases from them, I knew I was buying the right gear for the fishing I wanted.

They know, or know of, just about every great fishing spot in the state, up-to-date. Their advice and insight doesn’t solely come from what they’ve heard from other anglers or have read in reports. It often comes from their own experiences, as well. These are folks who love to be out on the water, just as much as the loyal customers they serve. That personal level of passion for fishing and their professionalism in educating others to be or become successful at it is the difference I’ve found at Anglers Den. It also doesn’t hurt that they are all great people to talk with and you can easily spend hours (when you thought you’d only spend minutes) of your time there.

They have all of the brands, models and options that you’d need for fishing on any kind of water. Salt or fresh. Lake, pond or reservoir. River or stream. Up in Alaska or nearby on the Weber. The other day when I last visited, we all got to talking and determined that the small staff at Anglers Den has approximately 200 years of collective experience with fishing.

If you haven’t ever been to Anglers Den, you must go. If you haven’t been there in awhile? Likewise. Make sure to bring in or mention Roy Connection Magazine when you do. If you’re already on your way to the water and need something fast, they’re highly organized and efficient, getting you back on the road, quickly. If you’re just dropping in to plan for future excursions…well, just don’t tell your spouse or your boss that you’ll “be right back.” That would probably end up being a bit of a lie…or at the very least, a fish story.
