I visited Estes Park in early August together with my 13-year old son. We had booked a one day trip through Kirk's and were met by an excellent guide named Geoff. Neither of us had ever fly-fished before, but by Geoff’s excellent explanations and teaching it took little time before we actually managed to throw the flies and soon after we started to catch real trouts. Geoff's knowledge and communication skills are excellent and his patience with novices who lose flies and mess up their fly-line is amazing. We had a great day with Geoff which not only included fishing, but also intelligent discussion about other things. At the end of the day we decided to book another half-day trip the next day. That following day we caught 3-4 pound trouts and while fishing is not only about the catch, these were catches of a life-time.
Kirk’s provided us with top-notch equipment and courteous service and while I like to recommended businesses how to improve the experience, I don’t real have anything to suggest.
