Kirk’s Fly Shop is more than a fishing gear supply store. We offer classes and guided fly fishing trips for all experience levels. While we’re happy to help you find the right gear to get started, we highly recommend working with one of our experienced instructors to help you make the most of your new hobby.

Here are three reasons we recommend working with an instructor to improve your fishing skill.

  1. Learn how to do things right the first time. When you work with an instructor, you’ll learn the right way to cast, tie knots, and handle your fishing tackle. If you’re just starting out, there are a number of resources available, from the internet to how-to books, but nothing compares to face-to-face instruction.

  2. Find the best fishing spots. Guided Estes Park fly fishing trips will let you see the backcountry and find the hidden fishing holes only experienced anglers know. Our instructors know what works in each spot and are experts at reading the water and the seasons. As you fish, you’ll learn what works for specific areas without the trial and error of going it alone.

  3. If you’re completely new to fly fishing, purchasing gear may seem like a hefty investment. Take an introductory class before you dive in. We’ll provide all the necessary gear and will teach you the techniques you need to succeed as a fisherman.

If you’re looking for a new hobby in Estes Park, fly fishing is the way to go. It’s a year-round activity and our experts will help you enjoy your fishing experiences from the peak of summer to the dead of winter.
