"Dedicated to bringing people and fish together"
May 2005

Hello all,

In the March Activity Guide we announced the opportunity for customers to enjoy private water close to Denver/Boulder at bargain prices. We realize that many experienced fishermen are not inclined to use guided services due to the cost and/or their familiarity with Front Range angling. To meet this challenge we have come up with Hosted Fishing Trips where a limited number of anglers (no more than four) can gain access to quality water via the payment of a simple rod fee. Transportation costs are shared and you bring your own lunch, refreshments and equipment. A member of our professional staff will escort you but you will be on your own when it comes to fishing.

Are these locations worth it? Check it out by clicking here for more information.

Fathers Day is on the horizon - June 19, 2005. We are going to offer a few specialty items you'll not find anywhere else, so watch for our announcement.
