    Avid is legit!!! My home shop as well. Ryan and Ben are top notch dudes who are on their game when it comes to dusting chromers. I hear they catch a lot of big trouts too...

    Ryan and the gang are top notch and it's my home store. Plus on occasion when I get bored and fishing isn't such an option I just go in and hang out for a bit.

    Great shop. Even though it's out of my way I usually make the majority of my purchases there.

    I have been dealing with the Avid Anglers since it was known as
    The Archer and Angler and over on Roosevelt. When the Archery moved out and Tom Darling went solo, I continued to deal with him. When Tom sold it, and they moved over to Lake Forest Park I followed them. They have moved within the mall, and the store is smaller, but I would expect that in these economical times.

    I have had NO BAD EXPERIENCES when dealing with them. For my money
    they are all first rate people and a good business model.

    I'll throw my pennies in the jar. They are my home shop as well and I enjoy all the peeps there. Good company and fisherpeople with a good sense of humor. I'm just far enough away in traffic that I'm not there every week which is a good thing for my marriage and my wallet. Ryan is a great owner and I'm glad they are there. Just need to bring them some skittles, beer and butt-rock music there next visit to say 'thanks'.
