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.

5280 is the best Tim made the trip that I will never forget
Sara · May 16, 2013
Excellent service! We had a wonderful experience and will definitely go back. The guide made our fishing trip fun and entertaining. We had fishing experience but still learned as he was very knowledgable. Highly recommend!

This is a very professional outfit. They got right back to me after leaving a message and gave great directions to the meeting place. My husband has a brain injury that affects his balance and the guide was very in tune with his needs and knew right where to take us to catch fish! It was an awesome day!
