Circle Valley Anglers
Circle Valley Anglers was founded in December 2006, we had made the short drive up from Cedar City, almost an every weekend event, to fish the Circle Valley area. With all the streams, rivers and reservoirs the choices were never ending, the one thing missing was a local fly shop. How could one area with so many fly fishing destinations, and all these miles of Blue Ribbon Streams not have a fly shop? What a shame. On our way home that evening Michelle and I discussed the possibility of opening a fly shop, and after spotting a great location in Circleville, we bought then quickly remodeled with the help of friends. Circle Valley Anglers was born.
Our vision was to bring all of Southern Utah, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Southern California and every visitors to the area a fly fishing outfitter that they could think of as their own fly shop away from home. A shop that is comfortable, friendly and generous with area information.
Our mission is to provide anglers, a cost effective guide service that would cater to theirs needs, expectations and wallets with a fly shop devoted to area waters. We stock the most comprehensive selection of flies available in Southern Utah, along with a good selection of hatch specific flies, tied by our own guides. Our shop stocks everything you will need for a trip on our waters and we are proud to be an authorized Orvis, Redington, Spirit River and Cortland dealer, along with many others.
Circe Valley Anglers leads in conservation efforts in Utah. We love the thrill of having a tight-line, but we have always been in awe of our surroundings, so it was a natural step to take Circle Valley Anglers “green” and to leave as small a footprint as possible. We believe, “A picture is worth 1000 words” so “take only pictures and leave only foot prints”. We have accomplished this and continue to grow that philosophy today. Our hope is that through the “challenge of learning how to cast, presenting the fly, putting all the pieces together and the sheer joy of feeling connected to one of the worlds’ finest arts, others will find a deeper appreciation for angling, nature and life.” We are proud members of Trout Unlimited and Federation of Fly Fishers. We are a contributor to Department of Wildlife Resources (DWR) bi-weekly fishing report and assist the DWR with conservation efforts, gill netting surveys and habitat improvement as needed.
The lodging at Anglers’ Inn, as well as the camper cabins, were designed and built with the comfort of our guests as our top priority. Everything you could possibly need is at hand and the best part is: You are only 10 minutes from Blue Ribbon Streams.
We truly love sharing the Southern Utah Fly Fishing experience with our quests. Whether you are just stopping in to find out how the river is fishing, booking a guided trip, staying in our lodge, or camper cabins: You will find our staff truly enthusiastic, helpful and above all smiling at the opportunity to share our experiences with you..
