PUTTING WORDS INTO ACTION, AND

Personhood over
Profitability.

Anglers Trading Post isn’t a business. It’s a mission. It's the result of a love of the outdoors and a passion for applied ethics. In 2014 our goal was simple: create an ethical fly fishing company. Since then, we've been finding new ways to achieve that goal;

From implementing environmentally conscious manufacturing techniques to helping exploited individuals overcome odious circumstances, we've become a fervent advocate of environmental responsibility and human rights within the manufacturing industry.

Quality, ethically sourced, and environmentally friendly is what we are about, through and through. Every brand and every product.

PROTECTING OUR ENVIRONMENT:

Materials Make the Difference

For us, being an ethical company means putting the environment before profit. If we can spend a little extra to make tomorrow a better place, that's a price we'll pay with pleasure. We consider the environmental impact of every product and constantly look for ways to innovate and make our products more environmentally friendly.

Take our Trailer Jigs for example. Each jig uses post-consumer recycled plastics that overmold a bismuth core, which is a non-toxic alternative to lead. There is no paint to chip off, and no toxins or arsenic like you would find in most other products. Our shanks are a special stainless steel that contains no leads or toxins. The dye used is an industry-first: EPA-certified non-toxic. Unlike other brands, we don't use battery acid in the process of dying our mylars and acetates.

Every part of the creation process for each Trailer Jig, like all of our other products, is carefully thought-out. Despite all of this, it's important that you know: our commitment to the environment doesn't conflict with our commitment to deliver quality products. We aren’t interested in sending you anything that we don’t believe is premium, top-of-the-line quality. This is not the place to find cheap and ethically-impoverished products; Anglers Trading Post is committed to provide you with only the most premium and environmentally-responsible products.
