In September of 1988, Paul and Susan Culler moved their family from Butler to Hudson and purchased Hook-It and the McNutt’s home. Paul and Susan renamed the store The Angler Bait & Tackle. In 1996, The Angler Bait & Tackle underwent a large expansion to make more room for fishing equipment, turkey hunting gear, muzzle loading supplies, archery, firearms and ammunition.
In April 2014, Paul and Susan’s youngest son Reid and his wife Heather purchased The Angler, fulfilling Reid’s lifelong dream of owning the business that he grew up in. From the age of 6, Reid spent many days and hours counting bee moths, dipping minnows and learning the ins and outs of the outdoor world. Reid and Heather are excited to bring their vision for The Angler to life while creating memories and building relationships with our customers.
