Trouts Fly Fishing opened its doors to the Denver angling community in the spring of 1995. Located on Old South Gaylord Street, Trouts started as a quaint neighborhood fly shop that serviced the greater Washington Park Neighborhood. The store remained in its original location for over 10 years, establishing itself as one of the top fly shops in the greater Denver area.
In May 2005, Denver native and long time Trouts customer Tucker Ladd came in and purchased Trouts Fly Fishing just before the shop was about to shutter its doors. Having been a loyal customer of the shop for years, Tucker had a deep fondness and respect for Trouts and the superior customer service that was always provided. With a desire to keep a Denver tradition alive, Tucker worked tirelessly to preserve the Trouts name and the renowned reputation it had achieved in their decade of business. So with a fresh stock of inventory and a renewed energy and feel, Trouts quickly reopened its doors to its faithful following. It didn’t take long for the shop to outgrow its space on South Gaylord Street, so in the winter of 2007, the shop was moved to East 6th Avenue where it resided for the next 15 years. And while those years on 6th Avenue were pivotal for Trouts, the size constraints and accessibility of that location were too much to overcome, so in the Summer of 2020 Trouts opened it's new Flagship Location at 8th Avenue and I-25.
