Why Small Businesses Matter in Darien: The Compleat Angler

Why Small Businesses Matter

Shop small, do big things for your community

Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!

You're IT The Compleat Angler!

Four questions with Scott Bennett, founder of The Compleat Angler.

Why did you start your business?

I started my business because of a passion for fishing and the outdoors!

What is your best-selling product/service?

All things Fly Fishing - Fly Rods, Fly Reels, and Fly Fishing accessories (tools, clothes, gear).

How many local businesses do you use to support your business (products and services) and can you name them?

We have a loyal clientele and our store is one of the stops in Darien for those who love the outdoors. We do our shipping (shipping supplies, online warehouse) from Commerce Packaging in Norwalk. We buy our flies from several local fly tyers.

Have you reimagined your small business?

We are a resource and community for fly fishing enthusiasts!
