My guide for fishing was Chris Galvin. We fished Clear Creek in Idaho Springs. Chris was not only a skilled fisherman, he was also a patient teacher. He listened to what I wanted to get from the trip and really helped me with the skills I wanted to target. Chris' years of experience and commitment to the sport give him a 6th sense on the river (we caught 20 FISH 😊). He is easy to talk to and has a calm demeanor that quickly put me at ease. He also cares about the fish, their environment and that our impact on both were minimal. I've fished with guides before but Chris worked with me and challenged me to do more on my own as he knew my end goal is to eventually fish without a guide. I finished the day feeling empowered and officially hooked on fly fishing.

I fished a half day with Chris and a couple of my friends and I must say he's one of the best guides I've used. We had quite a bit of variance in skill level amongst our group and Chris did a great job making sure everyone caught at least one fish! For those who wanted more hands on technique practice we was also extremely helpful. One of the members in my party actually lost our car keys while fishing and Chris was nice enough to give us a spin back into town. Absolutely fantastic customer service 10/10 would recommend

I took my 14 year old son who had never fly fished and Chris got my son in very quick time onto trout like 9 trout he caught in a couple of hours! He started off with great training on how to fly fish. My son was so buzzed out! As was I 23 trout in one day, not bad!! He was very accommodating to the fact my son had a stress fracture and very quickly pivoted to the right area, so not too much walking, yet gave us variety in some lake and also river fishing. If you think you know it all, Chris will absolutely take your fly fishing skills to another level. His patience, and passion to ensure a lovely experience is very obvious. I am very much looking forward to going out with Chris or one of his other great guides un the near future. He has the best staff and could not recommend more highly his services. You will not be disappointed

I had a great experience with Forrest as my fishing guide. I have been trying to improve for years as a self-taught fly angler and Forrest not only set me straight with some bad habits that were costing me catches over the years, he also imparted some great life-long knowledge about how to catch more fish. We had a lot of fun and caught over 10 fish in a half-day as well. Forrest made it easy to organize and meet up as well. I didn't even need to bring anything as we used all of his high-end gear and flies. I would highly recommend this company for your next guided fly-fishing adventure!

Best fishing trip my dad and I have ever had. Forrest was an awesome, friendly, and knowledgeable guide. He put us onto lots and lots of fish. Our shoulders were sore by the end of our fishing trip. If you are traveling to Denver hit up this guide service for sure!
