Things To Bring


The weather in the Colorado Rocky Mountains can be as fickle as trout sipping midges on the South Platte River in Deckers, Colorado. There can be dramatic changes in the weather so bringing the necessary gear and clothing is essential in making your Colorado fly fishing trip the best experience possible.  It is important that you dress in layers, adding or taking off clothing as the weather dictates.  We want you to be comfortable on your Colorado Fly Fishing Adventure.

(You may have to hide it from the guides.)  Please let us know if you have any special requests or needs, we will be more than happy to accommodate you.
