Kirks Fly Shop
When not outfitting customers with camping gear, fishing equipment, or trail-savvy llamas, Kirk, Luke, and Addy Bien can often be found out in a mountain stream in search of the elusive “Colorado Grand Slam”—the catch of brown, rainbow, brook, and cutthroat trout all in one day. The owners of Kirks Fly Shop, the Biens share their passion for the outdoors by guiding visitors to lakes and streams whether via hiking trails or on the back of a pack horse or a llama—an animal suited to traversing the high mountain terrain’s blockades of delicious grass.
