Erik Moncada

Ryan Spillers

Darren Strong

Ryan ties many flies for the shop and arguably the best at tying at Anglers.  When we have a custom tie to be made, Ryan is the guy for the job, after all there is not a fly Ryan can’t tie.  He was an Alaskan guide for four years on the Kanektok River, and has given  up guiding to work at Anglers.

Darren has moved on, now working at Micron, but will help out the shop when needed.  He is still very keen when it comes to fishing steelhead in our Idaho waters and has built his own bamboo rod.  Darren remains a great asset to the shop as a member of the ANGLERS fly tying team.  

John is the owner and operator of Anglers Fly Shop since 1997.  His involvement and support for the local fly fishing community can be seen and heard about throughout the Treasure Valley.  John has had major influences in the creation and evolution of our biggest fly fishing events including the Western Idaho Fly Fishing Expo, the Trout Unlimited Casting Competition, and the Idaho 2-fly Derby. 

Erik is the creator of the Pico Spider, and can be seen regularly in the shop.  He has been the President of the Boise Valley Fly Fishers Club and was the 2012 Western Idaho Fly Fishing Expo chairman. Erik’s fly fishing blog has become extremely popular among fisherman, and his involvement with the fly fishing community remains strong. Erik’s desire to be a hybrid angler makes him a great asset to ANGLERS fly shop.

Wes Atkinson

Wes is the founder of Idaho Trout Waters, and spend most of his time in search for untaped waters to fly fish.  He is currently tying flies for ANGLERS that include: stonefly nymphs, the billie’s willie, caddis flies, and various others.  Wes is a welcomed asset to the ANGLERS fly tying team, and his experiences in fly fishing places him year beyond the average angler.

Don Salyer

Don has been tying flies for over 50 years, and can produce all kinds of buggers in record time.  Leeches and buggers tied for Duck Valley, Magic Res, Horse Thief, and Henry’s Lake are Don’s specialty.  We are lucky to have such an experienced fly tyer like Don tying his flies for our shop.
