Fly Fishing Programs

at Garden of the Gods Collection

Did you know fly fishing is a year-round sport in Colorado? With over 300 days of sunshine and 70 degree days in January, there are no excuses not to take advantage with trips to the river! Garden of the Gods Collection has lined up a superb year of fly fishing outings sure to satisfy every level from novice to pro and everyone in between.

Our Fly Fishing courses and river expeditions are led by Member Paul Martinez.  Paul is a fly fishing guide and instructor at Angler’s Covey and has graciously offered his services and knowledge to fellow Members and guests. As you will see below, Paul offers day trips to private rivers and streams around Colorado Springs as well as classroom instruction.

 

Our Fly Fishing series is continuing through September and we are excited to announce the dates and themes, including a trip to Alaska! Through our partnership with Member Paul Martinez, we are able to offer exclusive classes with special pricing available only to our Members and their guests.  Visit our Member Portal for more information and to register for any of the programs listed below.
