The Joy of Colorado Fly Fishing Trips

By Allardlevi Subscribe to RSS | June 20th 2012 | Views:

Colorado fly fishing trips can be extremely satisfying because of the wide variety of trout to be caught, as well as seasonal fish like the Kokanee salmon. Many of the most frequently fished rivers are within two hours from Denver. The first step to an enjoyable trip is deciding on a good fishing guide service. Prices for strictly the guide service are typically around $200-$400 for a total of three people embarking on a full day of fishing. The accepted tip rate is about 20%. Relevant equipment will typically require $100-$200 to rent, though this may depend on the choice of guide service. Participants should bring extra clothing layers and some sunblock.

A valid Colorado fishing license is required of all participants above 16 years of age. Applicants are required to have lived in Colorado for at least six months before purchasing the license and, with some exceptions, must plan on remaining in Colorado. There are generally two ways of purchasing a fishing license: from the Colorado Department of Wildlife, or from License Agents. At-home and Internet courses are available for the prerequisite training. More details are available from the Colorado Department of Wildlife.

Although some guide services include rod rentals in the cost, others do not, so fly fishers may want to buy their own fly rods. The highest quality fly rods will generally not be found in large discounted sporting goods stores, so serious fly fishers may want to consider searching the Internet for more specialized stores. With regards to money, good fly rods will typically cost no more than $400 for all of the components, but some rods may have a long-term warranty that can save some money in the long term. Beginners will likely want a mid-flex rod, which bends from the middle half to upper third of the rod. Gender can also influence the choice of rod, as males generally prefer 9-foot rods, while females generally prefer 8-foot rods. Frequent fly fishers will likely save money by buying a single rod instead of renting one each trip.

Like fly rods, waders are an essential piece of equipment that are not always included in guide costs. Those looking to purchase waders should consider breathable waders, since cheaper alternatives will leave users too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. Breathable waders are also generally resistant to punctures from stones and thorns. Quality breathable waders generally cost from $100 to $400. To have an enjoyable fly fishing trip, it is highly recommended for interested fly fishers to visit numerous websites of fly fishing guide services, not only to learn about the most affordable deals, but also to learn more about specific fish to be caught and equipment selecti
