Have stopped here for flies and river reports several times. The team here is great. I’ve not gone on a guided trip however, their recommendations have always yielded. Very knowledgeable.

Fish With the Legends

If you’ve ever wondered why it is so hard to catch a trout, you’re not alone. Someone once said, “Fly fishing is halfway between brain surgery and rocket science.” 

Though not entirely true, all our guides have felt the same frustration you have experienced in one way or another. We know what it’s like to want to throw down your rod in anger and walk away, only to come back and give it one last try. And by the luck of the fishing gods, you finally find your first success.

Like any new sport, fly fishing can be a bit intimidating. Experiencing the beauty of fly fishing with a knowledgeable and patient guide can quickly steepen the learning curve.  

We want you to have a fantastic experience. Our talented guides help anglers of all skill levels learn new things, make new friends, and boost their confidence. We take a lot of the guesswork out of the many nuances of the sport. For those who have been fly fishing for most of their lives, you’d know the learning never stops. The continuing evolution within ourselves makes that passion for fly fishing burn bright every day.

Take the guesswork out of fly fishing when you experience a fishing trip with one of our legendary guides.

We are so pleased that we decided to take the float fly guided tour. Kevin was awesome and very knowledgeable! He spent time teaching me about fly fishing for trout. A big plus was I caught a few and saw some eagles. The views were amazing. I would highly recommend their service.

We have used Fly Fishing Outfitters three times now. All the guides are knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and know the rivers well. We have never had a bad experience with them. The guides go above and beyond to make your fishing experience fun and hopefully successful! I would not use any other company for fly fishing. Thanks to Bill, Kip, Norm, and Doug! They are the best!!!!!

Ready to take your fly fishing game to the next level? While we love taking everyone out on the water during our guided trips, we want to help you build your confidence to one day catch a trout on your own. That’s where our Orvis Fly Fishing schools can come in handy. The goal of our schools is to create a self-sufficient fly fisher.

Since 2011, Fly Fishing Outfitters has been host to the only Orvis One- and Two-Day Schools held in Colorado. Our staff brings many years of knowledge and creates a fun experience for everyone to enjoy.

Attend Orvis Fly Fishing School

Do you want to step up your game and take it to the next level? Have you ever considered teaching someone else how to fly fish? Would you rather be outdoors instead of your office job? If you answered yes to any of these questions then our 5-day fly fishing guide school might be the answer.

Since 1994, Fly Fishing Outfitters has been instrumental in launching the careers of many guides in the industry. We wrote the book on what it takes to be a successful professional in a highly competitive environment.
