Owner description: Come visit one of the largest fly shops in the world! For those looking for adventure we provide full and half day guided fly fishing trips. Also during the summer months we provide a free Orvis 101 Fly Fishing Class, see our website for details. Our goals are to provide the best value possible to our customers and to promote and grow fly fishing in our community. We want to invite people into our adventure and serve them in their journey. When planning your next pleasure or business trip to Colorado, make sure to include a customized fly fishing trip guided by the leader in Colorado Springs for over 20 years, Angler's Covey. The South Platte River boasts of rippling water splashing over cascading boulders and winding through deep granite canyons, sheltered by a ponderosa forest. Deep pockets and sweeping runs hide the elusive trophy rainbow and brown trout, waiting for their meal to dance on the water or emerge through the depths. Our experienced guides know this river and love to help you locate the trout, identify the hatch, choose the fly and teach you these and other skills. All of this is waiting for you, at about an hour's drive from either Colorado Springs or Denver. So don't miss out on a customized fly fishing adventure tailored around your needs. We provide both individual and corporate trips and will work around your schedule.

“Beautiful Scenery and a great guide”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

I book a half day guided trip through Angler's Covey with Greg Blessing as the guide. They had a great time and kept talking about how beautiful the scenery was. All that is needed to fish is provided plus the guide is very friendly and knowledgeable. After hearing about how pleased with the trip they were, I would definitely use them again.

“Awesome Half Day Trip!!! Caught Fish”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

We went on a half day trip to the South Platte (Eleven Mile Canyon section near Idlewild) and had a fantastic time. Our guide, Gene Rea, knew that we were newbies and spent a lot of time explaining the hatch, setting up our rigs, wading the stream, etc. He was absolutely awesome at helping us get set up and showing us what to do. We both caught fish, and would have caught many more (thanks to our guide) if we had any competence in setting the hook and placing our casts where we wanted them to go! All around a great experience! There are some truly good size fish in this stretch of water. Some advice for half day trippers - bring some lunch and snacks. You can stay and fish (if you drive yourself) once your guided trip is over. The last thing you want to do when the fish are biting is to have to leave because you are hungry. There is no where close to get food once you are on the river. Who wants to leave then anyway?
