The Secret Season: Upcoming @ The Covey

11/29/18 at 04:42 AM by Vince Puzick


As we head into December, many of us around the Covey start to think about “The Secret Season” – those winter days on the water that present a new challenge for the adventurous angler. When there are few people on the water and others may be chasing other snowy pursuits, the winter months provide unique opportunities for those who take the time to learn the how, when, and where to pursue sluggish winter fish. Here are some of the Shop's offerings as we head into The Secret Season.


I had the chance to head out to one of my favorite fishing runs this past week. While it wasn’t particularly cold and definitely not winter weather, the day on the river stayed basically one shade of gray the whole time. 10:00 am, when I shot this video, didn’t look or feel too much different from 2:00 pm.  The blend of river sounds and the birds on the other bank were part of the magic of the day.



And the time on the river got me to thinking of all the activity at the shop in the upcoming months.


December 1:  T.U. Day at the Covey. 10% of profits this day will be donated to the local chapter of Trout Unlimited, Pikes Peak Trout Unlimited. You can help sustain the clean, cold water in which our trout thrive with any purchase you make.


December 8Angler’s Covey Open House. Come by the shop and talk to the Guides who will be out on our sales floor to answer all of your gear questions. Pick out that gift for your favorite angler with guidance (see what I did there) from those who know Colorado fisheries.



January 4 and 5, 2019.  Winter Fly Fishing Lecture and Streamside Class. Take this class to learn tips and techniques from two of the region’s best, Kenny Romero and Scott Voyles.
