Urban Angler Moving Uptown

Today is Urban Angler's last day at their 206 5th Avenue address. They will be reopening  uptown at 381 5th Avenue on May 31st.

I still remember the first time I saw the Urban ad of some dude holding an absolute monster of a fish on the inside cover of one of my fly fishing mags. At the time I was brand new to the fly fishing game and that image forever changed my perspective on what was possible with fly rod and reel.
