Our fly fishing View more...guides are experienced and professional. All have a lifetime of knowledge, and are enthusiastic and passionate about the environment and conservation of our wonderful, wild brown trout. With the expertise of your guide's knowledge, the aid of Polaroid glasses, and then your presentation of a selected dry fly, or nymph, fishing is both exhilarating and testing.
Brown trout are predatory fish. In slow-moving pools, they cruise looking for food. In flowing water they tend to face upstream, feeding on drifting aquatic insects. Often our mountain waters are crystal clear and so one of the main challenges is for your guide to see the brown trout before it sees him or you. Brown trout immediately seek cover if they see movement on the riverbank. Your guide goes ahead of you, finds the fish, then points it out to you. With additional aid of his experience and knowledge in deciding how to cast to this particular fish, the fun and challenge is for you to outsmart it with your fly or nymph. Strike! - Hey bingo!
