Washington, D.C. - In recognition of their tremendous efforts and years of success, U.S. Senator Jim Risch has named Anglers Habitat as the Idaho Small Business of the Day for National Small Business Week 2014.  The company will be recognized in the Congressional Record of the United States Senate.

“I am pleased to recognize Anglers Habitat as an outstanding small business.  This is a company that epitomizes the entrepreneurial spirit of Idaho,” said Sen. Risch. “Locally owned and operated, Anglers Habitat is recognized as an expert in fly fishing gear.  Over the past 10 years, the company has expanded its sales beyond its flagship store in Caldwell.  Today, Anglers Habitat is distinguished as a world renowned brand exporting its products online through the company’s official website and through their eBay site.  I congratulate everyone at Anglers Habitat on their success and wish them the very best in the future.”

Founded in 1994 by Wayne Johnson, Anglers Habitat continues to supply top-of-the-line fishing tools and outdoor gear.  The company goes the extra mile to make sure customers make the most informed decision before purchasing the best equipment for their needs.  They even offer a trade-in program for customers with older working equipment to get a discount on newer products.  Their commitment to high-quality products, reducing waste, and customer service has enabled them to adapt to constant changes in technology in a unique marketplace.  Anglers Habitat is symbolic of the entrepreneurial drive and hard work that is so characteristic of the small business owners of my home state.  I am proud to see another true Idaho gem have such an exceptional reputation back home and abroad.

Senator Risch is the highest ranking Republican on the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship.  The committee oversees proposed legislation on matters relating to entrepreneurship and provides oversight of the Small Business Administration.  They also research, investigate and report all problems relating to American’s small businesses to the full Senate.
