District Angling is an independent company formed to fill a small niche in the Washington DC area for fishermen wanting access to local fisheries, specializing in fly fishing.
Based out of Arlington, VA - we love fishing our local waterways, from the tidal waters of the District of Columbia for local native and invasive species like bass, carp, shad, and snakehead, cool spring creeks and mountain streams in northern Virginia for wild trout, or elsewhere in the world where we ply the waters with our flies. We've got you covered.
Fly casting, fly tying, fishing, guiding, custom flies, tackle appraisals, fishing tackle and tying supplies, and all the expert advice you need to enjoy your time on the water. We have a combined total of over 100 years of experience to help you get on the water and enjoy your fishing. Let us help you figure out exactly what you need, where to go, what to use, and how to use it.
We care about our environment and our local waterways. We contribute to conservation organizations and participate in stream restoration, river cleanups, and are stewards of the places we fish. We also share news about fishing and the environment. Please follow our blog to learn more about what's going on in the fishing world.
