Even with all the great fly fishing diversity in the Durango area, the San Juan River below Navajo Dam is Durangler’s specialty.  The San Juan is a very unique fishery and tends to frustrate many fishermen with it’s very small flies and unusual fish behavior.  The guide staff is very experienced with many years of guiding the San Juan River in New Mexico.  A wade or float trip on the San Juan with one of Durangler’s guides is always an educational experience whether it’s your first or fiftieth trip to the San Juan.

Duranglers 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 at 923 Main Avenue.  In 2016, Duranglers received CTU’s “Exemplary Guide & Outfitter” award in recognition of their contributions to coldwater conservation.
