I liked the ease of booking and the ability for them to accommodate the schedule for me and my 12 year old daughter. However, when we met the guide the morning of, none of the requests that we communicated with the office were communicated with the guide. I specifically spent the time asking questions and making requests trying to ensure this would be a great first-time experience for my daughter, It's a shame because the guide was blindsided. Other than that, the guide completely recovered and accommodated the few things we requested, without hesitation or skipping a beat. He was knowledgeable about the river, and was a good teacher.

After years of talking about it, Dad and I finally arranged a father-daughter day on the water. Our guide par excellence, Wallace, readily discussed many possible destinations with us ahead of time, and we chose a location close to home for own logistics. Fish were caught, skills learned, and memories made. Considering one of us has only ever caught colds before, hooking a bunch of good sized rainbows and wild browns was thrilling! Wallace had tremendous patience and many suggestions for us novices, and was a stellar guide who kept switching rigs and tactics to help get fish on the lines. Our morning started with still water that was unexpectedly murky, but even that didn't stop us from hauling up a few big ones early on in the day. Being on the river was a welcome escape from our daily routines, and the scenery could not have been nicer - when we noticed it the few times we took our eyes off the moving water. Definitely looking forward to going again.

My adult son and I had a great time on the half day guided trip thanks to our guide, John. John made sure to pick a location based on what I was looking for - it was great. I could tell he put a lot of thought and research into it. We both learned a lot and caught some trout! John’s passion for the sport is contagious and inspired us both.

Everything about the process was professional and easy - from booking our trip, getting excellent information and guidance, and gearing up at the shop. I highly recommend FRA!

I want to express my appreciation to Front Range Anglers and our guide. I spoke with Antonio about my goals for our trip, including teaching my son and helping him experience the excitement of catching trout fly fishing. Antonio connected us with our guide John. John did a great job of teaching and sharing his passion for fly fishing. We fished a full day. We caught 18 trout, lost a huge rainbow and my son caught a brown and rainbow on a single cast. Great memories! Thank you!

Awesome fly fishing experience in Rocky Mountain NP, with our guide from Front Range Anglers, Christian. He knew the streams and how to catch fish , most of all he worked hard all day to optimize the number of fish we caught. With his help we created memories that will last a life time.

Whether you are a first timer or an experienced angler, the guides at Front Range Anglers will have you catching fish. The location and scenery only make catching beautiful natural trout that much better. What an experience. I’m sure to use them again.

We had a fantastic day! I would highly recommend this business. Scheduling, preparation with licenses and gear, fishing, and follow up were all extremely professional. It is obvious that the guides really love their work and are dedicated to making their guests feel comfortable and enjoy their day....no matter how each person defines a fun day. My daughter and I tagged along on my husband's birthday fishing trip and the guides made sure we all had a custom experience that made each person happy. I just enjoyed hanging out on shore and really had no desire to fish but they honored my request to find a "pretty place" and they even made sure there was a bathroom, cell service, and plenty of water available. One of my daughters wanted to participate for a little while and they were patient and encouraging and also allowed her to take a break and be done when she had enough. My husband is a fairly experienced fisherman but still felt like he learned quite a bit. He really enjoyed the experience immensely. I would definitely do this again and would recommend it to anyone! It was also easy terrain and a short walk from the car which I know is important to some people. It really was an experience that anyone would enjoy!

My son and I spent the day on the Fall River guided by Daniel Hogarth. We had an incredible experience, learned a ton and caught alot of fish. Daniel was awesome. He is a very experienced guide and very willing to share his knowledge of the water and craft of flyfishing. He worked incredibly hard all day long and made the right fly changes that resulted in catching fish all day long.
Daniel is very personable and fun to be on the water with. I would highly reccommend you request Daniel and Front Range Anglers if you are interested to flyfish in the Denver area.

Incredible experience and would strongly recommend to anyone looking for fly fishing guides. Went with a party of 6, all of us never fly fished before and we all caught multiple trout, one of which was over 16 inches.

Guides were incredibly helpful and attentive and provided everything that we needed. Couldn't have asked for a better trip.

Andrew was a truly fantastic instructor. He was patient, kind, informative and enthusiastic. At the outset, he explained what we were going to do and why, offered me the chance to ask any questions, and then got us right into fishing. He answered all of my questions along the way, switched out flies, untangled my line, gently corrected my technique when necessary, and netted fish after fish after fish when I successfully hooked them. Could not have asked for a better morning on the water nor a better guide!
