Destined for Adventure

04/25/18 at 05:21 AM | by Vince Puzick

Sharing fishing stories over dinner with a group of anglers is not a bad way to end the day. You can hear the satisfaction of a good day on the water, tales of the number of fish to the net or the heft of that one that “may have been the biggest I’ve ever caught.” That was the mood after Day One of our two-day mini destination trip this past weekend. Angler’s Covey hosted the trip, and Three Rivers Resort & Outfitters and Willowfly Anglers out of Almont, Colorado delivered the adventure.

First week of April and we're announcing "ice off"? Yeah, that's right!

Kenny Romero reports on his trip to Spinney on Tuesday, April 3.

From A Guide's Perspective: What Makes a Great Trip?

04/02/18 at 01:45 PM | by Vince Puzick

So I asked a handful of Angler's Covey guides what makes for a great guided fly fishing trip -- from a guide's perspective. Even though the ten guides had different opinions on some of the specifics specifics, they agreed that a successful trip boils down to three big things: the teaching and learning experience, expectations for the trip, and the client's attitude toward the experience.

Smith Optics: I can see clearly now

03/09/18 at 06:50 AM | by Vince Puzick

I’m a bit of a skeptic, I have to admit. I don’t always buy into all of the hype about a given product. Since I don’t have a lot of “disposable income” (when I’m not making these blog entries, I’m in the world of education), I am unable and very reluctant to make a purchase just for having the latest bells and whistles. But I finally gave in when a handful of guides here at Angler’s Covey kept saying that having high quality sunglasses was key – and Smith optics were top-notch. I made the purchase, and I can see clearly now.

"Rude Boys" and Other Tips

03/04/18 at 02:46 PM | by Vince Puzick

The Little Red Book of Fly Fishing, co-written by Kirk Deeter and Charlie Meyers is one of those books that should be on every fly fishers bookshelf or sitting on their tying table. Just keep it handy. It’s packed with such great info in an easily accessible format. I had the pleasure of hearing Deeter’s presentation at our fly fishing hootenanny on Saturday where he shared his top twenty tips discovered over the years when he has fished in exotic places around our little globe.

This Valentine's Day ...

02/11/18 at 07:35 AM | by Vince Puzick

If you have a fly fisher in your life, he or she is probably waiting for those three magic words as we approach Valentine's Day: "let's go fish." And just like Cupid on this day of love and magic, our Guides can make any fly fishing occasion special with customized trips for two anglers on the river. But hurry -- you have to book these trips before Cupid's arrows fly on February 14 (but you can schedule them for dates that you choose)!

PHWFF: Two Stories Out of Many

01/30/18 at 06:08 AM | by Vince Puzick

We've posted about the great films and the great raffle prizes that happen at the Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T). But why? It's not about the films. All of the films tell stories, but the stories I enjoy the most are the ones told by the veterans involved with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing -- and all the proceeds from F3T ticket sales and raffle tickets go to Project Healing Waters. Two of those men over the last few years were very moving in telling about their experience with PHWFF: Larry Fivecoats and Brady Busby.

Class Close-up: Winter Fly Fishing

01/07/18 at 03:48 PM | by Vince Puzick

Hoping that Kenny Romero and Scott Voyles, Angler’s Covey guides, could teach this old dog some new tricks when it comes to winter fly fishing, I participated in their Winter Fly Fishing class this past weekend. This two-part class – lecture and streamside – was a great way to flatten the learning curve, learn some new approaches, and hone some skills to increase the chances to catch those January fish.

Reflections on 2017

12/30/17 at 02:04 PM | by Vince Puzick

At the eve of a new year, we tend to do two things. We resolve to do or try new things in the coming year to improve our lives, and we reflect on the year that is now in our rear view mirror. Jon Easdon, Director Services, shared that 2017 was “a refreshing year in terms of guiding. With fairly consistent flows throughout the year and no major drought or flooding issues, these consistencies were a welcome change from our roller coaster years before.” Our Angler’s Covey guides took some time to share some experiences that made 2017 memorable.
