John and Shirley Hagan opened NW Flyfishing Outfitters in May 1993. Their son, Jack Hagan, joined the business in the Fall of 1994. They have seen many changes in the sport and industry over this time period and have never (almost never) regretted the decision to open the store. If asked they would tell you the most surprising aspect of the business is the relationships formed with they're customers. "Our regular clientele isn't just a customer to us, they're family. You can't quantify how valuable that is", says Jack Hagan. The store originally sat 3 miles East of its current location. The new store is in the ideal building for a fly shop, the only thing missing is a freestone river flowing by the front deck of their "A" frame building.
