Fly Fishing in Colorado Mountains

Andrew will be in his third season as a guide here at Devil’s Thumb Ranch. Originally from Kansas City he wasn’t exposed to much fly fishing growing up, however that did not stop him from terrorizing local bass ponds with a spinning rod. His passion for fishing is rooted in early mornings spent in the Finger Lakes region with his Dad fishing for various pan-fish. His world changed (for the better) when he discovered fly fishing on a backpacking trip near Centennial Wyoming at the age of 18. Subsequent years would be spent earning a bachelors degree in neurobiology from the College of Wooster, where he would frequent local creeks chasing trout and Great Lake tributaries chasing steelhead. He was fortunate enough to “study” abroad for one semester in New Zealand, where he spent much more time fishing and traveling than he did in the classroom. Andrew really strives to have a positive upbeat attitude and feels most rewarded when people want to get more into the sport. If you’re from Kansas City or familiar with the thriving metropolis that is Wooster Ohio, have questions or just want to chat about fly fishing, don’t hesitate to call or come in and talk to Andrew.
