We will meet at The San Juan Angler located in downtown Durango. The guided fly-fishing experience will get started once everyone is fitted with waders and boots and fishing licenses are purchased. I will be happy to offer transportation to the river and back. Once we arrive at the location, I will provide a quick tutorial covering the basics in casting, line management, hooking, fighting and landing fish. I will provide demonstrations and assist to help drive the techniques home.
There is much to understand and execute but we’ll start slowly and ease our way into it. We will fish multiple spots along the river adjusting the strategy to the various conditions we’ll encounter. Be prepared to be actively engaged throughout the trip. Walking moderate distances along the water, standing for extended periods of time, weathering the elements, is all part of an average day on the water.
Once we get into the rhythm of things, we can concentrate on catching fish. The trips are all catch and release but there will be plenty of opportunities to take photos. These will be the memories of a great experience. At the end of the day we will return to Durango and reminisce.
