Fly fishing Colorado...Many people think of cold mountain streams meandering through lush meadows, dropping into valleys and canyons. Nature at its peak, flowers in full bloom as the sun touches the landscape. These mountain streams hold some of my favorite fishing spots, I often seek them to gain back what little sanity I have left. Few streams have not been touched by my line, I have done my exploring and found my spots as many anglers often do.
Beginners and expert fly tiers, and everyone in between, come join us for our FREE fly tying night on Wednesday. Learn what it takes to make your flies catch more fish! Each night we tend to focus on different patterns and techniques, from hackle, biots, and ribs, to wire, floss, and proper proportions. One night you might find yourself tying a BWO emerger, the next week a wooly bugger, there is no set "curriculum". We focus on what you need help with, providing a casual environment for you to learn in.

Run off has been breaching the banks of the front range waters, flows are high and fishing is tough. I get asked a lot where to go fishing with waters at the levels they are. While fishing in high waters can be productive, there is a certain technique that takes some practice. Sometimes I just want to throw a dry fly to hungry fish, and Bear Creek provides that opportunity. Flowing from Evergreen to Morrison, Bear Creek is an often over looked fishery.
Seasons are changing, temperatures rising, and our favorite fishing spots are becoming accessible again. For some of us, it's time to dust off the rod and waders, while others haven't taken a break from fishing all winter. Personally, I have fished at least once every month for the past 5 years, and I don't plan on stopping that tradition any time soon. When my tradition started, I was so excited for the winter months. There was no crowd (hardly an encounter with another angler), there was a peace and serenity that only fishing in solitude could bring.
Struggling with how to tie a certain pattern? Don't know where to start to learn how to tie your own flies? Maybe you just want to see how fly tying is done, or you just want to hang out with some good guys who are passionate about fly fishing. Come join us Wednesday nights from 6-8 for our free fly tying sessions. We have all levels of experience, from people who don't know what a vice is to commercial fly tiers, all with a laid back attitude to help with any issues in your fly tying.
Fly fishing, what a sport! There are those of us who have been bitten by this bug hard, it has taken over our lives, ruined our families, drained our bank accounts, and still we come back for more. What is it about fly fishing that draws us back time and time again? What causes us to seek out those moments when the reel is spinning out of control from a fish running away?
