A guided trip is the perfect gift for the angler in your life. Whether you’d like to advance your skills or simply learn how to fly fish, a trip will immediately get you plugged into fly fishing. With all of the gear included, all you need to bring on a trip is yourself. Here are a couple of our more unique guide trips available.
Couples Evening on the River
This custom trip has been one of our most sought after and asked about. Two guides, a chef, and a gourmet stream side meal make this trip truly a 5-star experience. This trip can be customized in any way, and we have literally a ton of options.
Kayak Fly Fishing Trips
New to the guided trip arsenal this year are guided kayak fly fishing trips. As one of the only fly shops in the state that offer this, it is a unique and super fun way to fly fish in the area. With access to some of the best Stillwater in the US, this is the way to fish it.
Fly fishing from a kayak offers the adventureous angler ways to explore our stillwater fisheries -- Spinney, Elevenmile, Skagway, and Pueblo Reservoirs -- in new ways. "You can reach fish otherwise inaccessible," Jon Easdon says, "and it opens doors to reach more species." Depending on the body of water, the angler can fish for wiper, walleye and bass. "I can't wait for pike season, to be honest."
Two other benefits and pleasures offered from the kayak? "Stealth and solitude," Easdon says. The guided trips will be about $90 more for the outing to cover the kayak rental. Watch for more information in the spring about this great opportunity! (Photo by Gaylon Wampler. Check his Facebook page for more of his work.)
Business on the River or group guided trips
Our corporate or group trips are the perfect way to get folks together and enjoy the sport of fly fishing together. Whether it’s a work function, team building, or family reunion, these trips are an extremely affordable option for your group. Trips start at $95.00 per person.
