Adventure Travel – FRA’s Upcoming Hosted Trips

Here at Front Range Anglers, we love to fish, but we also love to travel.  We share your enthusiasm for the destination travel side of fly fishing. Often, planning the adventure and the miles we travel are something we relive and relish just as much as the actual fishing we get to do at our final destination.  Our 2017 calendar is overflowing with destination possibilities. Come join us on some of these amazing adventure travel trips, hosted by FRA.

Christmas Island

unnamed
An absolute tank of a GT. A catch of a lifetime.

Christmas Island fly fishing has historically had a reputation as an incredible international bonefishing destination. What most people don’t realize is the sheer number of species opportunities that a fly angler can expect during a week, resulting in racking up an astounding number of species on a fly. From big bonefish to three different species of trevally — golden, bluefin, and everyone’s favorite, giant or geet, to a myriad of triggerfish, and even milkfish, there is something new for everyone to check off their list. The interior, back country islands and ocean-side flats of Christmas Island are a mix of hard white sand, coral, and turtle grass, making Christmas Island truly a saltwater fly anglers nirvana.

South Padre Island Redfish – 2017 Dates Coming Soon

Our rental for this trip is just a short boat ride from Laguna Madre, where the search for Redfish tails begins.  Redfishing is unique here, far different than many other places around the United States.  Anglers are greeted with clear, sand and turtle grass flats built for sight fishing.  Redfish are the primary target species, but very large Speckled Trout also frequent these flats, as well as the occasional Jack Crevalle.  Looking for a unique saltwater trip with small crowds?  This trip is just for you.  Click here to learn more, only a few spots are left.

FRA Guide Anne Reid with a big Bull Red.

Late fall and winter in Louisiana is and excellent time for large Redfish less than an hour from New Orleans. On this trip we will stay in a lovely VRBO on the eastern side of the French Quarter in a neighborhood known as Marigny. This quiet neighborhood provides easy walking access to excellent restaurants and music that NOLA is known for. Your host is very knowledgeable of the many sights, sounds, and smells of New Orleans. Then, in the morning it gives us quick access to the road to Hopedale or Delacroix, where we will pick up our boats to go search for the large Louisiana Bull Reds. This is marsh fishing at it’s most pristine; sight casting to Reds that can be over 30lbs. Not only can the Redfishing be spectacular, you will be amazed at the expanse and beauty of fishery.  Click here to come hunt for Bulls with us in Novmeber.

 

Cajun Camp Redfish Trip

2017 Dates Coming Soon

Wallace with a 35lber deep in Cajun Country.

Do you like adventures and getting off the beaten path?  If so, then this is a trip you do not want to miss. After arriving at Louis Armstrong Airport, we are not headed to New Orleans. Instead, we are going deep into Cajun country for Bull Reds and Cajun cuisine. Our camp on the bayou is about an hour from the airport; and we can’t give you any more location information because the guides who fish here are intent on keeping it secret.  No, you don’t have to wear a blindfold, but you will have to turn of geo-tagging on your camera. Authenticity, un-pressured water, and big Bull Reds are all staples of this hosted trip, offered exclusively by FRA. We will “passuh a good time there fer true.”

FRA Owner Steve with an absolute beauty.

Chrome Chasers is a lifetime experience to fish the Alaskan frontier for feisty steelhead. You will be sight fishing with nymphs and swinging streamers to large steelhead in pristine Alaskan waters. These steelhead average 8-15lbs, but get as big as 20lbs! With access to 13 different streams there is no shortage of great water to fish on this journey.  The trip is not for the feint of heart.  It is a true Alaskan wilderness adventure.  Call the shop for details.
