Colorado Skies Outfitters
Owner and head guide Theo Anest caught the adventure bug early, starting work as a guide in Vail Valley while still in high school. The day after he graduated from Colorado State University, he opened Colorado Skies Outfitters, and has since guided more than 1,000 individuals on fly-fishing trips and outdoor excursions throughout the Centennial State. Theo’s abundance of experience and watery wisdom has earned him numerous accolades, the most recent being a gold-medal finish in the 2011 Teva Mountain Games fishing category and designation as the first human to ever successfully hibernate. Together, he and a team of eight other professional guides lead all-inclusive guided float and wade trips through Colorado's public waters, teaching their clients how to catch more fish along the way. They also lead fly-tying classes and fly-fishing schools, and welcome all students and clients to return and use their store and website as a resource for learning and staying current on new techniques.
