Our Guided Trips
Colorado’s Front Range and the area directly around Boulder offers a wide variety of fish species, excellent angling opportunities, and is best known for incredible and exciting dry fly fishing, making for an action-packed day! From wild Brown Trout in Boulder Creek to gorgeous Cutthroat Trout in the high mountain lakes and streams of Rocky Mountain National Park, our goal is to give you lasting memories of a true rocky mountain fly fishing experience.

Antonio is a highly decorated competitive fly fisherman from Portugal. He is a multi-time national champion of Portugal, and has been a member of the Portuguese national fly fishing team since 2002. He is highly decorated and regarded as one of the best fly fishermen in Portugal. On top of that he has years of experience guiding and coaching fly fishing techniques from beginner to advanced anglers, as well as serving as coach of the Portuguese National youth team. He is also the founder of the Portuguese Fly Fishing Association and served as the Vice president of the Portuguese Sport Fishing Association. A day on the water with Antonio would consist of a great learning experience, as much as it would a fly fishing experience.
Adam has been living in Colorado his whole life and was born with a sense of adventure and a fishing rod in hand due to his Grandpa and Granddad. He started fly fishing when he was 11 years old and continues to have a great passion for the sport and loves conveying the excitement and mental therapy fly fishing has to offer.
His fishing mottoes come down to 3 different aspects; no cast is a bad cast unless you hook yourself or someone else, a human is like a fish, why run when you can walk and “no man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river, and he’s not the same man”- Heraclitus.
Alex grew up in Denver with the Rocky Mountains as his playground. As a youngster, Alex could be found all over the Front Range fishing, hiking, skiing, and camping. It wasn’t until he moved away for school and work, however, that he realized how much he loved and missed catching fish on the fly, especially in the Rockies. He brought his fly rod with him on many of the adventures that took him away from Colorado for the better part of six years, from Oregon to Boston to Uganda to Zanzibar, but nothing compared to waking up early, driving up into the mountains, and chasing monster trout on Colorado rivers. So, after fishing out all of the lakes in Rwanda, his last home away from home, and ensuring there were no lost trout in its streams, Alex returned to Colorado to do what he loves in the place he loves most. When he’s not fishing, Alex can be found coaching and playing rugby or hanging out with his two Rwandan street dogs.
Hi, I’m Anne Reid! I am a mother of two wonderful daughters and a volunteer firefighter at the community of Lyons. I have been fly-fishing most of my adult life. My introduction to the sport “just happened” on a camping trip on the Cache La Poudre River. After hooking a beautiful brown trout, I fell in love with the iridescent orange spots and the excitement of pulling the fish out the flowing water. I’ve been fortunate to meet others along the way that share the same passion I have for the sport; we have been allowed to share this excitement, knowledge, passion, and fun in the form of guiding. I guide mostly women clients.
Fly fishing has become a sport that can be shared with friends and family or celebrated on your own. It gives us the opportunity to see some beautiful areas of the world and have some great fun getting there!
Andrew’s background begins in the beautiful city of Chicago. Growing up with a rod in hand, fishing in the big city, has allowed him to gain a wide range of fishing techniques. After moving to Boulder to attend the University of Colorado, Andrew transformed his old skills to enclose a more scientific approach to fishing. Since then, he loves pursuing the best bite throughout the western United States. From small trout fly-fishing on high alpine creeks, to aggressive muskellunge on a fly, he’s gained an array of knowledge on many of North American waters including wild Colorado rivers. To compliment his great attitude and expertise in fishing, he will coach you to perfect your presentation on Colorado waters.
Robert (Bobby) was born in St. Louis MO but moved to Boulder Colorado when he was young. He immediately started getting involved in fly fishing because of his dad and grandpa who taught him how to fish. Bobby is a sophomore at the University of Wyoming studying business. What pushes him is his drive for adventure, he will never pass up a long road trip or a hike in the forest. When he is not fishing you can find him skiing, hiking, or playing baseball for his school. Bobby is proud to work at a place where he can do what he loves fly fish and be outdoors.
Chase is originally from Mississippi, so bass and panfish are his forte. When he was in high school, he got a chance to go to the White River in Arkansas, and after only one day of watching a couple of fly fishermen wear out rainbows on streamers, he decided that the fly rod would be his next challenge to pursue. Through his many years of fishing, he has found that fishing with flies is definitely the most thrilling way to catch most every fish he has gone after, and also the most productive!
Christian is a full hearted outdoor enthusiast and has had a life long passion for fishing. Roughly 10 years ago he picked up his first fly rod and has never looked back. He often says, “the best part about fly fishing is you can always learn more and become a better angler.” Before becoming a fishing guide, he spent a lot of time teaching friends, “because everyone should try fly fishing at least once!” When he is not guiding, Christian spends his time fishing, biking, skiing, and exploring the great state of Colorado.
A native of North Dakota and once arrived in Colorado fly fishing soon caught on quick with Colton. Upon moving to Colorado, he came to appreciate the Colorado mountains, rivers and fly fishing. Having obtained a degree in Natural Resource Management with minors in Fisheries Biology and Conservation Biology from Colorado State University, Colton has an appreciation and knowledge for the outdoors, fly fishing and fish. He has a passion for sharing his knowledge of fly fishing, flies and fish with others. He started tying flies soon after he started fly fishing, which gives him an appreciation and skill set for fly fishing.
David has been fly fishing for over 30 years now. He learned back east on the Housatonic in Connecticut, and the fabled Catskill rivers (Beaverkill, Delaware, Neversink). David has a couple of biology degrees, including one from CU Boulder, so he knows enough about the bugs trout eat to be dangerous. He’s also a bit of a traditionalist as a fly fisher (but not a curmudgeon), preferring slower rods and old-school fly patters – heck, if trout ate them 40 years ago, they’ll eat ‘em now too. David is always happiest when he’s on the water, be it a small mountain creek or one of the well-known big Colorado rivers.
