Kyle Wilkinson- Outfitting Manager, Professional Fly Fishing Guide
Kyle got his first fly rod at the age of 10 and immediately began harrassing the bluegill and bass swimming in the ponds of his family farm in Southeast Kansas, where he was raised. His parents made the mistake of taking him to Montana in high school, where he immediately fell in love with being out West and in the mountains. Fly fishing means more to Kyle than just catching fish. It's about connecting with the people, places, and experiences that this sport provides. Kyle is a very knowledgable, enthusiastic and patient teacher who has a deep passion for sharing the great outdoors with others.
Scott Dickson - Head Guide
Scott has been fishing as long as he can remember, but it wasn’t until the early 90’s when he picked up his first fly rod. One of the many things Scott loves about fishing is the fact that you’re never done learning. There’s always room for improvement, new things to learn, and new “tricks” to try. Being able to share his skills, knowledge, and experience he’s acquired over the past 20 years with the most novice anglers to the more experienced anglers is just one of the many reasons that keep him guiding year after year.

David Luna- Professional Fly Fishing Guide
I was 12 years old when I moved to Denver Colorado from the border town of Juarez Mexico, up until that day I had never seen a river besides the Rio Bravo (Rio Grande). I started fishing when I was 14 years old. I used to spend the whole summer school break fishing, dunking worms for bluegill, bass, and the occasional catfish that would take my tasty treat. After doing that for a few years I was ready to expand my knowlege. During one of my first outings to Waterton Canyon I saw a fly-fisherman for the first time in my life. I was very intrigued and knew I had to try this method. The first time I fly-fished was I was 18 years old and now 14 years later I'm still very much in love with this sport. It is something I'm extremely passionate about and hope to pass down to my children.

Marcelo Caiozzi- Professional Fly Fishing Guide
I was born in Chile, South America where the beautiful and pristine mountains, rivers, lakes, and ocean created a lifelong impression on me. Upon moving to the United States I immediately began fishing for everything I could. Teaching people how to fly fish soon became a real passion for me as I doubled as a professional guide for 3 separate fly-fishing businesses focusing on such rivers and streams as the legendary San Juan, Rio Grande, and many others. Now residing in Colorado, my passion for fly-fishing has taken me all over the state. Besides fishing freshwater, I love to spend any free time I have heading towards a salty flat with fly rod in hand. Too little time, so much water to explore...
Kaili Purviance- Professional Fly Fishing Guide

After being introduced to fly fishing a little over five years ago, this Texan turned Coloradoan has spent most of those days exploring the trout waters all over this beautiful state. He's also been known to pack those rods and catch a plane seeking the trout's larger relatives on the salty flats of Florida and marshes of Texas. Regardless of skill or experience level, Kaili is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with clients and be a part of their adventures.
