Do I need to have all the gear to fish with Almont Anglers.

No. Whether you are new to fly fishing or just don't want to bring all the gear, I am happy to supply all the fishing gear you require for the day.

I have all the waders, rods, reels, line and tackle you need as well as an amazing collection of flies. I can supply lunch and pick you up at your place of lodging. If you are a DIY type of angler, I do offer discounts if you rather bring your own gear, lunch, or help with boat shuttles.

You should bring; polarized sunglasses, a ball cap or wide brim hat, sun protection and have a Colorado Fishing License available on line here

What happened to the Fly Shop?

After owning the shop for 28 years, the Resort was finally purchased and the new owner decided not to renew my lease.

Although I will very much miss working in the shop with Rick & Les, and visiting with all my shop customers it was a great run!

I have kept all my Outfitter Permits and am excited to be out of the retail business and on the river full time in the best office in the world.

(The fly shop is now office space for the resort).

How are you different from other outfitters?

Being different than the others is just more fun!

After guiding 30 years in the valley I still enjoy helping others catch fish as much as catching fish myself.

While most outfitters have the same price for 1 or 2 people in a boat, I offer a lower price for 1 angler. After all if I am supplying half the flies, tackle & lunch you should get the discount!.

Also new this year discounts if you are bringing your own rods, waders, lunch or helping with a boat shuttle.

I didn't just graduate from a 2 week guide course, (although some days I wonder). And I can't always help my clients catch a lot of fish when the bite is slow. But I promise to do my best to help you catch "The One", and with my coaching I hope to make you a better angler when the bite is on.

Best fishes,

Mark
