Looking for a fun and unique day for your employees, clients, or business partners? Let Montrose Anglers set it up for you in the professional manner you require. We can host groups from 5 to 30 at our Double Diamond River Ranch. Start your day at the ranch with casting instructions by professional guides. We then get you out on the diversified waters of the ranch. Some will fish the lakes, some the private creek, and some the river. We then meet back at the bunkhouse for a catered lunch.
Now is a good time to learn how to lie about fishing, sorry, expand the truth. From the one that got away to the one you thought you had a picture of before you let it go, we’ll teach you the nuances. After lunch, we’ll switch up guides and fishing partners to finish the day. Have some healthy competition for big fish, smallest fish, biggest braggin’ rights and more. Offer Montrose Anglers enough time in advance and we’ll have some custom fishing shirts made up for your event. A day on the water like this is worthy of lots of pictures.
We can customize your trip even more if you’d like to include rafting. Combined with the fishing should leave you exhausted and satisfied. Whatever your needs are, we can make it happen. More and more companies are taking eco tours to western Colorado. Once you take a look at what we have to offer your business group of any size, you’ll understand why a day on the water is motivational at every level.
As a trip like this is a custom event, we’ll work with your corporate liaison to build a fair and competitive price to make this adventure possible and profitable to your business operations once you’re back in the office.
The most important question to start with is what can we do for you? Tell your guide if you are interested in entomology, casting techniques, reading water, going for big fish or numbers. Do you want to fish hard or take a relaxing day on the water? Do you want to learn the different fly patterns and what they represent or just catch fish? The more you communicate before you get to the water the better we can be for you on the water. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Everyone has different goals on the water. The more we can communicate, the more we can help you reach yours.
Maximum is 3 anglers per guide, this insures the quality of your trip. If you would like to request a specific guide, please mention when making reservations and we will try to accomidate your request.
Trip includes a professional guide, transportation from the shop to the water and back, sandwich style lunch with drinks on full day trips (preference order can be made in advance), Rod and reel, flies, tippet, leaders and all terminal tackle for the day. You can expect your guide to be knowledgeable and willing to share and teach what they know. Waders, boots, and other gear are available for rent, but not included in the trip price. A good guide can make a poor day memorable and a bad guide can ruin a great fishing day. Let us know immediately if you have a problem with your guide, or at info@MontroseAnglers.com . Also not included are fishing licenses and guide gratuities.
Here at Montrose Anglers we offer a variety of trips. Basic summer gear requires a rain jacket, water bottle, polarized sunglasses, hat, sunscreen, sporting gear, etc. When you book your trip we will email you a very specific gear list for the trip you’ll be going on. We can rent appropriate footwear to you if needed.
Tough question with no right or wrong answer. Guiding is a service industry and as such 20% is standard with better service more and bad service less. It’s fine to tip in cash or use your credit card at the end of the day. Please remember a tip is a good part of a guide’s earnings, but never feel you have to tip. Any guide knows a good tip is earned and not a given for showing up. If you have any problems with your guide or our services don't hesitate call me at 970-249-0408 or email me at info@MontroseAnglers.com.
There is a 50% deposit required on all trips to secure the dates you want. The final 50% will be charged at the completion of your trip. No refunds are guaranteed 2 weeks prior to your trip. Our guides and company work hard to book dates and it can be costly to cancel after denying other customers. If this makes you nervous, we recommend you purchase trip insurance for your peace of mind. Although this is our policy we will do everything we can to help rebook you if your plans unexpectedly change. All trips go out rain or shine unless conditions are deemed unsafe by the guide. As safety is our number one priority at Montrose Anglers, no drugs or alcohol will be permitted on any of our fly fishing trips.
