5280 Angler

Having plumbed the waters of New York, Minnesota, and Colorado during their respective childhoods, the guides of 5280 Angler know that fly-fishing is a sport of personal preferences. They practice catch-and-release, and they don't schedule cookie-cutter trips—instead, they consult with their clients to gauge their skills, ambitions, and ability to hold something slimy without making a face. They then organize fly-fishing excursions that would best challenge and entertain their charges, scouting through public waters for choice wading locales such as South Platte River Valley, which accommodates fishers of all experience levels with prime casting spots. Full-day trips also include an onsite lunch, often prepared picnic-style along burbling banks and scenic mountains.

Customer Reviews

My fiance and I spend a full day on the water with this company last weeked. This is an absolutely top notch operation. Incredibly knowledgeable and friendly guides. They provide the best equipment. They also teach you how to catch fish without them going forward (although you will also catch a lot fish when you're with them...BIG fish!). Highly experienced fishermen, first-time fishermen, and everything in between, will have an incredible day on the water with this operation. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
