Parker worked with our part of the group. He was perfect. Very knowledgeable. Helpful without being in the way. Would recommend him as a... More

Spent a wonderful day on the Pecos fly fishing. Our party of 5 were guided by Parker and Everett. We all caught fish, some as large as 22 inches. Would differently return and recommend this shop for future trips.

I have been a regular shopper at High Desert Angler in Santa Fe for years now. The knowledgeable and friendly staff are helpful in all aspects of fly fishing...fresh, salt, trout or tarpon. Great selection of gear (especially flies...not just the latest "fads" but flies that catch fish) and helpful assistance in getting you outfitted properly. They know the water...local,... More

Walked in today july 21 and was totally ignored by the clerk who was handling the shop that day. He was dealing with a customer that was complaining about the drag on his reel. The clerk never acknowledged that we entered the shop nor made any attempt to make us feel welcomed. I have been to this shop before (even... More

Looks like they had a great selection of flies. Staff was very helpful as well. Too bad it was raining out! So we had a to settle on a hat and head back to the hotel for the day. Looks like we will have to come back!

Ive depended on High Desert Angler each year for advice on fly fishing the Pecos River, just outside Santa Fe. This year, after getting skunked one day, I decided to hire a guide. On a recommendation from a local, I went into High Desert Angler, and the next day my guide, Tom, and I spent a half day on the... More

My bf and I just returned from Santa Fe. The highlight of the trip was learning how to fly fish through High Desert Angler. We booked a full day on private land. Despite the fires and forest closures, we were still able to fish on the Pecos because of the private land accommodations. Ed, the manager at High Desert was... More

Just wanted to say what great service we had from High Desert Angler in Santa Fe, NM. We wandered in on a Saturday, booked a guided fishing trip to the Pecos on Sunday, and all the gear we needed was included in the price of the trip. Our guide, Marcos Silva, was wonderful. He has a wealth of knowledge but... More
