Frying Pan Anglers Guide School/Fishing Camp.

With the completion of the Frying Pan River Lodge, we can now undertake something we have wanted to do for some time now.

We are now conducting a Guide School/Fishing Camps in Basalt at our lodge at 100 Frying Pan Road Basalt.

The goal of this course is two-fold.

Fishing Guides.

If you want to be a fishing guide our goal is to qualify the applicant to be a wade guide in Colorado after 5 days. In addition, the first section of the course will qualify the guide for 25 hours of instruction towards being qualified as a float guide.

The remaining 25 hours of qualified rowing ending in a rowing certification can be conducted over an additional 3 days of floating.

In addition classes will be given in czech nymphing, spey casting and streamer fishing techniques. We will also have a formal discussion in marketing the fishing and guiding business.

At the end of the course those completing satisfactorily and impressing our coaches will have the opportunity of applying for a guide position at one of our three shops.

Fishing Camp.

For those who don't want to be fishing guides but just want to spend a week with other like minded fishermen and fishing guides this is the perfect opportunity to just "hang out". You will spend the entire time with the guides in a range of circumstances and will have the opportunity to learn whatever you like which we can teach you.

As noted above, we will be exploring a number of different techniques ranging from competitive rigs, to streamer fishing and spey casting. Our programme is a little more flexible for those who just want to attend a camp and so if you would prefer more wade fishing than floating that can be done as well.
