We are a professional guide service offering walk/wade guided fly fishing trips in Colorado to a multitude of public and private water destinations in the Rocky Mountain region of Colorado, as well as guided float trips on the Colorado River. What sets us apart from our competition is the expertise of our guide staff, along with our extensive permits that allow us to guide rivers others can’t.
Our head guide is Pat Dorsey, who is known for being one of the best trout guides in the nation,stemming from his career guiding the South Platte river. We have Steve Parrott, who is also nationally known for being the expert in Czech Nymphing, and has popularized Euro Nymphing in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.
