We stay in a private home just North of Buena Vista, Colorado. Situated quaintly on the Arkansas River, this will be your fishing sanctuary for the extent of the trip. The main house has 3 bedrooms, a full kitchen, expansive patio, and plenty of room to relax. The guesthouse next to the cabin has 2 more bedrooms and a small living room. Accommodations are quoted in double occupancy. Single accommodations may be available upon request for an additional fee. Please inquire upon registration.
Meals are included from dinner on day 1 through breakfast on day 5.
The first two mornings, we head into town for breakfast at a local diner. Sandwich ingredients are set out in the kitchen around 11:30, and you’re welcome to swing by and grab lunch whenever the urge strikes. Fruit, granola bars and snacks are available anytime. Dinners are hot, hearty, and comforting after a day of fishing in the chilly fall weather. While the menu changes often, some of our favorite recipes include grilled steaks with potatoes and salads, homemade lasagna, grilled chicken, and more. If its a particularly cold day, we might just whip up a batch of chili! The last morning, the guides will serve up a tasty breakfast of eggs, bacon, and more.
*Most dietary restrictions can be accommodated with advance notice
Since I am a novice and not familar with this type of fly fishing, I needed a lot of help. I was with Tom the first two days and his patience was just short of "saintly". Eric was also an outstanding guide and teacher. The food was outstanding. Eric is a great “grill master" and he and Tom make a hearty breakfast.
I would travel again with either Tom or Eric. Both are outstanding men in every way. They are great teachers and educators. Seeing and learning about the life cycles of the insect on the river bottoms was an experience I did not expect.
The river environment was outstanding, with clean, clear water and beautiful rock structures. We arrived just as the the trees were reaching the fall colors. Wildlife was abundant with Mule Deer everywhere. I could not have been more pleased with every part of the trip. I did not want to leave. "One Last Cast"
