Kelly was very patient with first timers and so excited at every nibble. Unfortunately we only had two bites but the experience was fun. I wish we could have had four people to a guide. I think it would have worked fine.

We are happy to hear you had a great experience!
Fishing can be tough when you are starting out, so do not give up.

Our policy of guide to client ratio (no more than 3 clients to 1 guide) is in place to insure that the customer gets the most professional guiding experience available. We want you to leave with a new skill as well as a good experience. Additionally, this industry standard insures that everyone gets some one on one time with the guide; an essential element to learning any new skill or sport.

Sincerely,
Tim Patterson

A good friend and I took a three-day flyfishing trip with RIGS Adventure Fly Shop and Guide Service. The trip was down the Gunnison River Gorge. We met early in the morning in May hopeful that we would be flyfishing during the peak of the salmon fly hatch. When we arrived at the trail head we took our gear bag and hiked .9 miles down to the Gunnison River. There we met the rest of the guides, were assigned a inflatable raft. The rafts contain two clients and one guide. Each day included flyfishing, mostly from the raft. RIGS supplied outstanding lunches and dinners along with outstanding guides. Everyone busted their butts trying to put us onto feeding trout, which is all we could ever ask. The Gorge was beautiful as was the Gunnison River. Bottomline, I go again in a heart beat.

Put us right on Trout in the area and we were just walkins buying flies to go out for a few hours. RIGS is a full line and full service fly shop offering all sorts of gear and accessories.

These guys were very helpful when it came to renting gear. They assisted us getting the SUP on my tiny car and even gave us a simple rack that worked great. The price to rent I thought was a bit high, but the gear worked out great and we had a blast. I would definitely go back to these guys because of their friendly service and I am thinking about taking a fly fishing class with them.
