Avid Angler History

The Avid Angler began in September 1995 by Tommy Vaughan and his family. It began as a small store in a strip mall just north of the St. Augustine city limits on Ponce de Leon Blvd. or U.S. 1. Gradually the inventory grew and the store became known for having items that others did not have.

In March 2004 the store experienced a devastating fire that destroyed more than 600 rods and hundreds of thousands of dollars of merchandise.

However, due to our very loyal customers and friends the Avid Angler was able to keep the doors open by moving anything salvageable into two pods and then temporally moving into the office space next door.
