Action Angler & Outdoor Center is the only stream side fly shop and guide service in Texas. Our fly fishing equipment is specialized for the hill country angler. We offer an extensive trout, bass, and panfish fly selection.
Waders and boots are available for rental for $20 per person a day (Day = shop hours 8am to 5pm, not 24 hours). Rental fee can be used towards the purchase of new waders. Damaged waders and boots, not related to normal wear, will result in a purchase of damaged waders/boots minus rental fee.
We offer river access, for fly fishing only, 7 days a week for a $5 per person day fee. An orange colored drop box is located at the trail head. This stretch of river is commonly remembered as the old Camp Beans section. (This is the only river access on the Guadalupe that is reserved for fly fishing. We do this because of the trout mortality caused by treble hooks commonly found on spinner and crank lures.)
Our store front is seasonal, and hours of operation vary upon demand. During our off season (June - September) the store front hours are limited. Guides and gear are still available online, by phone, or email during the toob hatch months. Please call 830-708-3474 in advance to check hours, or make an appointment.
We host an annual 3 day float trip on the Gunnison River with Black Canyon Anglers in June. Please contact us for details.

Our business was founded in 2002 after 4 years of weekend construction building the store. The creation of the store was inspired by a fly shop at Lees Ferry in Marble Canyon Arizona. We were able to use roughly 30% of recycled products to build the store, and was built on a pre-existing horse stable. We have expanded our product line slowly over time, and have added guided fishing trips into the mix.
