Welcome to NCangler.com, an online resource for sports men and women, young and old, who have a passion for fishing the waters of North Carolina. North Carolina Anglers, as well as visitors to our state who migrate here for the great fishing, will benefit from the shared tips and techniques of a collaborative online fellowship of fishermen.
NCangler.com was created by NC native Randy Durham and premiered online on January 1st, 2005. The goal is to build a website that will become the definitive resource for anglers from the mountains to the coast of our great state. Through the shared collaboration of saltwater, freshwater, kayak, and fly-fishermen coupled with informative articles, fishing tools & tips, we hope NCangler.com will become your online guide to fishing in North Carolina.
