Great day of fishing with Chris. Learned new techniques and caught ~20 fish on the South Platte. Couldn’t have asked for a better day or guide. Can’t wait to come back and fish with Chris again...top notch experience!

Terrific day with Chris guiding me on the Clear Creek today. Got into more fish in a few hours that I could on my own in a week. Chris was very knowledgeable and a great teacher.

Wanted to try fly fishing but was somewhat skeptical. We love to fish but we had never used fly rods. Chris and Ed were great instructors with much knowledge and patience! We caught lots of rainbow trout and had a fun time doing it!!

Fit me in on short notice. Took me to great scenic spots and most importantly learned and caught good fish. One of the highlights of my trip for sure.

I've fished with Chris for over 5 years. His trips never disappoint and I always learn something new every time. Chris understands customer service and always provides a first class experience. He is a great teacher, sportsman and a true gentleman.

No; he provides all of the gear for you. I have some of my own, so I didn't need his. Hope this helps!
