Improve your cast and maximize your success by working with our expert guides to improve and perfect your technique. We’ll practice traditional casting, roll casting, and long casting to enhance speed and accuracy, and we’ll learn how to cast into narrow slots and between rocks. During our clinic, we’ll also have access to video recording, where we’ll record your cast and then play it back while offering constructive feedback and slowly make our way towards a better improvement of skills and technique.
Itinerary: The exact times of the ½ day trip will be determined after sign-up and arranged directly with Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides. Half-day trips usually start around 7:30 am or 1:00 pm and include 3-4 hours of fishing. We have fly fishing departure locations from Denver, Golden, Boulder, and Estes Park Colorado. Our guide will pick you up at your Boulder Hotel or residence, alternatively you may meet us at our Boulder Offices. Depending on our departure spot, the drive will take between 5 and 20 minutes. During the drive to the fishing area we will go over basic safety information, questions that you may have and review our plan for the day. Once we arrive at our fishing location for the day, our guides will quickly get you set up with the equipment needed, go over any instructions that you may need and get you on the fish to begin a wonderful day of fly fishing.
Included: The services of a professional angling or fly fishing guide, round-trip transportation between your Boulder hotel or our office and the fishing location, terminal tackle and equipment (Including flies, rod, reel, and booties/waders), bottled water and snacks (lunch is also included during full-day trips), and education about the local and natural history (including a library of Rocky Mountain flora and fauna).
