Dear FFO,
I have just returned home from a trip to Beaver Creek, CO. with the Daimler Chrysler Motors Company. While in Beaver Creek, I had the pleasure of attending a half day fly fishing school and a half day fly fishing trip with Matt "Lew" Lewis with your company. Lew spent a Sunday morning with me in a beautiful park in Avon introducing this novice to fly fishing. He was very detailed in his instructions along with having a lot of patience. After a couple hours of instruction, we were in the Eagle River where I landed a brown trout. What a thrill! On our half day trip, I caught two (2) brown trout under some pretty windy conditions. All the time, Lew was offering me suggestions to improve my casting and fishing habits. Bottom line is that this old country boy had a great time. Much of the great time can be attributed to Lew. He is a great ambassador not only for your company and Orvis; but also for Colorado. Also, I made a couple of buying trips to your store in Avon where the staff was very helpful and attentive. Hats off to Fly Fishing Outfitters and to Lew for a memorable time.

I just wanted to take a moment to drop you a note about your guide, Dan Houck. My wife and I floated the Roaring Fork with Dan this past Saturday. I was very impressed with Dan’s skills as a guide; he was quite capable on the oars and also put me on a fair amount of fish. My wife, who does not fish, enjoyed the day on the water as well. We both enjoyed Dan’s company and professionalism. I have fished with a fair amount of guides, and I would rank Dan among the best that I have fished with. Attached is a photograph of the largest fish I caught on Saturday. Again, kudos to Dan for his knowledge of the river and putting me on fish like this one. It was a day that I will remember for a long time. I look forward to coming back and fishing with Dan again sometime.

We were a four boat party on a float trip on the Colorado River. All the guides were knowledgeable, personable, and tried their best to make the fish take the fly. Yes the fishing was slow but that's fishing and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We would certainly recommend this outfitter. The staff runs a great shop. Great shop and people.


This was the second time I have fished with Fly Fishing Outfitters and it was even better than before. Kevin was superb!

I'm writing to commend one of your guides, Kevin Wildgen, for his excellent customer service and guiding skills. The fishing trip was a surprise birthday present from my parents. My father had originally scheduled a half-day float down the Colorado with a different guide. But due to a scheduling mix up, that guide was not available. There was also some confusion about whether the trip had been paid. Kevin stepped up immediately without hesitation and said it was no problem and he'd take me out. We were on the river in no time. He was extremely patient with my rusty fishing skills, and he provided me expert instruction while helping me catch some nice trout. I learned a great deal on this trip and had a fun, relaxing time in the process, everything you'd expect from a top-notch guide. I was only in Colorado for a few days and that was the only day I could break away to fish. Kevin made sure the trip was a success. Please pass along my thanks to Kevin, and be assured that the next time I'm in your neck of the woods, I'll use your services again and tell everyone I know to do the same.

FFO runs a first rate shop and is always a source of great information. As a result, I recently purchased a TLS Rod from him and will soon be adding a reel.
