The Angler's Covey Team

Our staff is one of the best in the country. Each member has his or her own unique passion for the sport of fly fishing, built from years of adventures on the water, and we would like nothing better than to help you make the most of your own fly fishing adventure. 

David Leinweber is the proud owner, manager, buyer, janitor, and general help around the shop.  David has been in the outdoor industry for over 30 years and has spent all of his life pursuing backcountry adventures.  His preferred method of angling is to lose himself on a small stream miles from civilization.  He's fortunate to have fished over 100 different locations in Colorado.  David is currently a board member of the Cheyenne Mountain Chapter of Trout Unlimited.  David supports Project Healing Waters, the Boy Scouts of America, and he leads several groups in conversations about his faith, conservation efforts, and business development.

Becky Leinweber is co-owner of Angler's Covey and a Colorado native who has thoroughly enjoyed the great outdoors for her entire life. She enjoys the variety that fly fishing offers: from throwing hoppers to eager fish in small streams to watching bonefish run with her fly in saltwater. She finds joy in sharing her passion for fly fishing with those new to the sport, especially other women. Becky began our women's program years ago, realizing that women often learn better side by side with other women.

Steve Gossage is the Merchandise Manager, taking care to ensure that we have the right products stocked and ready for you in the store. But when he's not in the store, you'll find him either on the river or watching the latest Yankee's game, both strong passions in his life.  Steve is also an excellent tier, casting instructor, and guide. Although Steve excels in all manner of fly-fishing, he always comes back to his method of choice: streamers.
