I spent a great afternoon last Tuesday, July 22nd, with guide Nic P. from Kirk's Flyshop in Estes Park. I am a permanent beginner, having flyfished on an irregular basis for the past several years, mostly on lakes for bass and sunfish, and relatively unsuccessfully a number of times on streams for trout. My goals for the afternoon were: First,... More

I purchased a guided fly fishing trip for my husband and sons as a Fathers Day gift. They enjoyed it tremendously. Jerry was their guide, and he was excellent. He was a great teacher and a pretty good source of entertainment too. He also shared some good fishing spots for them to return to later in the week which was... More

I had my wife and two boys with me for a guided fly fishing trip. Caleb is 10 and Titus is 5. John and Ben our guides asked me what my goal was. I want my boys to hook and land a trout on a fly rod while wearing their waders. Ask and you shall receive. Great time gentlemen. Great... More

I have a fair amount of experience fly fishing, but I wanted to introduce my wife and three kids to the sport. I have two sons (12 and 10) and a daughter (8). I explained to the shop that I wanted them to have a nice experience fly fishing and hopefully catch their first trout on a fly. Kirks delivered.... More

I have been fly fishing for awhile but booked a trip with a guide for the first time. Jay, my guide, spent time finding out what I wanted to accomplish and designed the morning around my goals. Great fun, great fish! I recommend booking early. Some out of town friends tried for a same day trip and all of the... More

This was the first time my son and I fly fished, and it couldn't have been better. This four four trip was a gift from my wife and our guide Ben Brown not only taught us the basics of fly fishing but made sure we had fun catching both rainbow and brook trout. Kirks made sure we were outfitted with... More

Stopped at Kirk's to check out the store and their offerings. Since I am not a beginner to the world of fishing, I just decided to rent some gear and go out on my own. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Rented waders and a rod from them for 3 days since I packed some of my own gear along, that... More

This 4 hour trip was a gift from my wife via groupon. I am a newbie and was excited but apprehensive about his trip. My guide Chris Smith assured me that I would have a great time and told me that I would catch fish. I really thought he was kidding about catching fish. I was outfitted in waders, boots... More

We did a 6-hour guided fly fishing trip with Kirk's Fly Shop on June 2nd for our 30th Anniversary. Granted, we were initially hooked by a Groupon offer - but based on reviews we extended the 4-hour Groupon trip another 2 hours. There were five of us, with two guides for the group. We all caught fish: Rainbows, Browns, Cutbows... More
