What is the Minturn Anglers Fly Fishing Guide Service?

Fly Fishing guide service - Happy angler showing her prize troutIf you’re looking for an adventure in fly fishing in Colorado, you want the services of an experienced and qualified Minturn Anglers fly fishing guide. Our hardworking fishing guides (from both the Denver and Vail locations) are committed to their craft. They have an intimate knowledge of the waters they fish, no matter what the weather or time of year. Here are more detailed fly fishing guide service information from each fly shop: Denver and Vail Valley.

There are many benefits to hiring a qualified, experienced fly fishing guide to find the best waters and help you make an excellent catch. Whether it is for just one special fishing trip or a regular experience, a reputable fishing guide service can provide the following:

  • Best fishing waters

Even though you might be familiar with the area, your guide will be able to explain the nuances of different stretches of water and the impact of the weather and different times of year. This info will stand you in good stead when you’re out there alone at the edge of the South Platte on a blustery day.

  • Access to prime private waters

A professional guiding service usually has access to fishing waters that are not open to the public. Such spots are chosen carefully to provide you with a very special experience. Often these stretches can only be reached by boat or plane, further ensuring exclusivity. Imagine the adventure of flying into a secluded ranch in northern Colorado.

  • Apparel

Can your wading boots get any better? Absolutely. Your guide might suggest you try the ones he has with improved traction. He’ll know about the balaclava with built in protection from those pesky insects around Colorado Rivers. A good guide isn’t trying to sell you products but he certainly can draw on his experience to help you understand the difference between an expensive fad and a useful piece of equipment.

  • Advice for improving your fishing techniques

From the hunt to the catch, your guide will help you learn how to read the water, locate and study fish, choose the right line and fly, and cast well whether you’re on a mountain stream in Vail or a flat stretch of the Blue River below Dillon Dam.

  • Encouragement for pushing your limits

Guides will support you in trying a new kind of reel or fly, improving your technique or even trying a different location. They might suggest fighting those trout on an urban fishing trip on the South Platte right in Denver. You just have to remember that they know what they are talking about and trust their advice.

  • An absolutely great time

You can relax and let the guide look after all the details of providing the boat, waders, tackle, flies and even your refreshments. He’s there to look out for you.

  • A new fishing buddy

Best of all, you have someone with whom you can share your fishing stories. Listening to his tall tales will inspire you to plan even more adventurous fly fishing with a professional guide.

Take advantages of all the benefits of a fly fishing guide service to increase your knowledge and improve your fly fishing skills.

This is such an easy sport than even a five-year can handle the equipment. Minturn Anglers guides supply all the equipment, even throwing in food and drink and organizing a few activities to keep everyone busy.
