We decided that to make our trip to Estes Park a complete experience we needed to try our hand at fly-fishing, something we had never done before. We booked a 4 hr. trip on July 23 with Estes Park Mt. Shop and it turned out to be our favorite activity on the whole trip. Our check-in was seamless and quick and our guide Jonathan was fantastic!!! He took the time to explain all the basics including how to think like a trout :-) before he let us get in the river. Watching him as he demonstrated was like watching poetry in motion. Such beautiful form! Just the experience of being in the river and the fluidity of casting and listening to the river was awesome enough but to be able to say that we caught five trout was icing on the cake. We are totally hooked on fly-fishing and can't wait to try it again. Our only regret was that we didn't try this sooner in the week so we could have fly-fished every day! Thanks Jonathan for making our vacation one we will never forget!
