NocoFlyFishing Guide Service

I am proud to announce that I am now an insured guide with NocoFlyFishing. Read more and book a trip with me soon.


What is NocoFlyFishing?

In an effort to keep things simple you can spend more time on the water making for a great day. As a tenkara guide with Noco Fly Fishing I can do just that for you. I am able to offer traditional and tenkara trips into Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP). Come explore the crown jewel of our National Park system and catch Rainbow Trout, Brook Trout, Brown Trout, and search for the elusive Greenback Cutthroat, the state fish of Colorado.

Rocky Mountain National Park offers water that is perfect for tenkara. But if you want to fly fish with a western rod and reel set-up I can also help you out.

If you wish to test your skills as a fly fishing angler, there are private water options as well. Why not try out the Red Feather Lakes. This location will give you the opportunity to catch trophy size fish testing both your patience and your rig.

As a guide, I have experience with all levels of anglers. If you are a total beginner or extremely experienced, I will provide you with an amazing guided experience at any of the waters available to me.

As part of any guided trip, Noco Fly Fishing will provide any necessary gear including flies! I will provide snacks on the four hour trips and lunch on the eight hour trips, meaning all you need to worry about is your Colorado Fishing License, which you can purchase online.

NocoFlyFishing Trip Options

In association with Noco Fly Fishing, I offer two guided trip options:

  1. HALF DAY FLY FISHING TRIPS: Half day trips consist of 4 hours on the water. I find these trips are the perfect choice for those who have busy schedules. They are the perfect length for kids or for those who are curious to learn more about fly fishing. Half day trips are generally scheduled around peak fishing times, depending on the season and current water conditions. Note: lunch is not included in half day trips.
  2. FULL DAY FLY FISHING TRIPS: Full day trips are the most popular choices. These trips start bright and early and anglers spend approximately 7 hours on the water. I set aside time to allow anglers to take a break, relax, and eat a lunch prepared streamside.

A 50% deposit secures your outing and the balance is due at the time of booking.

Educational Outreach Program

The Tenkara Grasshopper Educational Outreach Program will also be offering a Weekend Tenkara Clinic throughout the year. During this clinic you will get the chance to learn the basics of tenkara. I will cover gear and techniques, while using the streams in Rocky Mountain National Park as your classroom. We will cover traditional tenkara as well as some western techniques perfect for tenkara. The clinic will start at a local brewery with a presentation, fly tying and some basic instruction. Day two will consist of an eight hour, guided trip into Rocky Mountain National Park.

Topics I will cover:

  • Rod setup and maintenance
  • Line options
  • Sakasa Kebari presentations
  • Tight line tenkara techniques
  • Dry fly fishing and other rigs
  • Tenkara streamer fishing

Cost: $125 per person
