Trip overview:

Typically we start trips by meeting at the shop, but pickup for you in the Boulder area can always be arranged with the guide. At the shop, you will be properly sized and fitted in your equipment to ensure your comfort. Once we have the equipment fitted and all the necessary fishing licenses, the guide will provide transportation to the water.
Our guides create a comfortable learning environment for you and use years of fly-fishing and guiding experience to get you into fish. You will find that our guides are both patient and attentive, especially with kids. A great guide will work hard so that you don’t have to.
