A fly fishing excursion with Minturn Anglers is a perfect way for your group to enjoy themselves in our spectacular Colorado high country.
Every year we organize many corporate fly fishing trips. We work with our clients to design an excursion that will be memorable for everyone, regardless of how skilled or experienced they may be. Our professional guides know exactly how to bring out the best in everyone during their Vail Valley fly fishing adventure.
We are a full service fly shop and guide service. With a large pool of professional guides available to us, we are able to take out groups of 20 or more, outfit them with top of the line gear, and get them all out on the water quickly and efficiently. We never book more than three clients per guide, and can accommodate just one or two clients per guide if that is your preference. Our fishing trips are all inclusive, providing everything your group will need for an enjoyable day on the water, from rods and reels, lines and flies, to waders and boots.
We have exclusive access to many private ranches in the Valley, allowing us to offer a wide range of exciting options and enhancements to your corporate fly fishing adventure. Consider combining a fly fishing experience with an afternoon of clay shooting or provide a western flavor with a horseback riding session. Discuss food and beverage options with the friendly Minturn Anglers staff. We can arrange anything from sack lunches to four star five course gourmet meals. Indoor or outdoor meeting space or a fireside evening mixer can be easily arranged.

Minturn Anglers Prides itself in upfront Honesty & No Hidden Fees. There is no fine print on our website. We do not advertise a low price and then nickel and dime our clients for flies, leaders, tippet and equipment rentals at the end of the day. We include all the flies, leaders, tippet, waders, boots, rods, reels and lunches on full day guided fishing trips. If you see a lower advertised price, and additional charges in the fine print for flies, rentals etc. proceed with caution! On a typical full day float trip with two anglers, it would be common to use 24 flies.
TRIPS DO NOT INCLUDE: A FISHING LICENSE & A GRATUITY FOR YOUR GUIDE. STANDARD GRATUITY IS 20%. Meals are customized for each each corporate trip.

What do I Need to Wear?
The best way to explain this is to imagine what you would wear if you were going on a hike or long walk on a similar weather day.
Do I need a Fishing License, and if so…where can I buy one?
All individuals 16 and over will need a Colorado Fishing License which can be purchased for at our store.

Where do I meet my guide?
We can arrange to for you to meet us at our shop, at fishing locations or we are happy to pick you up at your place of residence. Whichever you prefer.
Will I catch a Fish?
Catching fish is never guaranteed, but we would say with strong certainty you will have opportunities to catch fish. We consider an “opportunity” as you set the hook, and felt the fish wiggle on the end of the line. How many fish come to hand is in large part determined by how much experience an angler has hooking & landing fish with a fly rod.

We hire full time professional fly fishing guides committed to fly fishing. We are not a seasonal mass tourism fly fishing operation like you will find in most resort towns. We know our rivers intimately and are not learning them as we go. We are constantly making adjustments to your flies and rig throughout the day because we know that an extra split shot is the difference between catching a fish or not catching a fish.
Knowledgeable: Our guide staff is made up of authors, commercial fly tiers, and guides who fish and win fly fishing competitions. We are stewards of the sport and enjoy sharing our passion and knowledge for the sport with you. It’s easy to say, “we have the most knowledgeable and experienced staff” on a website. If you have any doubts we encourage you to ask around.
Innovation: We are innovators of our industry offering trips that no else does and service that is unrivaled. We are often followed or copied, but never outdone by other outfitters.
We Work Harder: The biggest difference is that we are the hardest working guides on the river. If we pass through a run that we know holds fish, we don’t just keep going. We back row it and adjust our weight and depths until we start hitting fish. Once we start hitting fish, we don’t coast. We fish the river hard from start to finish.
Honesty: We are more interested in having you back year after year as opposed to making a quick buck off you. If fishing conditions change drastically following a big rain storm, we will be honest about what you can expect and let you decide whether or not you still wish to fish or reschedule. We will always be happy to issue a refund if conditions wont allow for a great day on the river. That being said, we can’t think of a single day EVER where all stretches of water in Vail have been unfishable.
Friendliness. If our success could be summed up in one word, “friendly” would be that word. In an industry made up of arrogant fly fishing elitists, we have grown from nothing by consistently following the simple principle of, “Just be nice to people.”
