About Arbor Anglers

Husband-and-wife team, Nick and Sharyce Herman, Colorado natives who live in Wheat Ridge, opened Arbor Anglers on April 1. The shop’s grand opening celebration will be May 7.

“Colorado fishing is good all year round,” Nick said, “but spring is when people really start to think about it.”

The grand opening celebration will include brand representatives — including Umpqua and Patagonia — contests, prizes, food and professional guides. Everybody is welcome to come “hang out,” Sharyce Herman said.

A family business

The Hermans wanted to provide a friendly fly shop for the Golden community.

“It goes back to wanting to have a place for novice and professional fly-fishers,” Nick Herman said.

Together, the Hermans have been in business management and retail for 20 years — Nick Herman worked in software development for nine years, and Sharyce Herman still works as a merchandiser for Apple.

Nick Herman left his job in software to open Arbor Anglers. He is there full time, while Sharyce Herman spends afternoons and early evenings at the shop.

The rest of the Arbor Anglers staff consists of one other employee — Marcelo Caiozzi, head guide and casting instructor.

However, there are a couple of honorary employees: Ben, the family dog, who is likely to greet customers, and Alexander, the Hermans’ 5-month-old son.

What they do

Nick Herman has been fly fishing for 22 years, but Sharyce Herman is a beginner. It’s a new hobby she enjoys. “It’s kind of therapeutic for me.”

The shop retails apparel and all fly fishing gear for women and men. And it also partners with 5280 Angler for events, special deals and fishing trips.

“We’re very passionate about fly-fishing,” Sharyce Herman said, “and we wanted to share that with the community.”
