“Take a Professional Guide Flyfishing in Estes, Colorado!”
Reviewed 3 June 2012

My brother Mike and I were referred to Kirks Flyshop in Estes Park, CO by a friend in Connecticut. We requested Mike Caldwell as our Guide well in advance. On the 26th of May (2012) we drove from Evergreen (West of Denver) up past Boulder to Estes Park for a six-hour fish-packed stream flyfishing experience. Mike took us to the Upper Big Thompson in RMNP, a lower portion of the Big Thompson, under the footbridge in Estes Lake and , finally, to the Cheley Beaver Ponds for the "big" ones. With Mike's guidance, we hooked into enough fish to tire us out at the end of the trip. Flies we used were so small that they couldn't be seen on the water! This was difficult technical fishing made easy by the Guide. We wholeheartedly recomment connecting with Kirks Flyshop &Mountain Adventures for short trips, packing adventures and - if rock or mountain climbing is your "thing" - ask for Mike Caldwell. We're looking forward to our next visit out there, and another trip out - maybe longer this time!

“Guided Fly Fishing”
Reviewed 2 June 2012

Kirk's Fly Shop provided a quality guided Fly Fishing outing. My roommate and I are in the Service. He recently returned from a year in Afghanistan. We purchased a Groupon 1/2 day guided trip. Our guide was knowledgeable of the water and provided expert advice. Since we are very seasoned Fly Fishermen, our guide was able to pinpoint feeding lies for trophy or near trophy trout resulting in a wonderful day of fishing. Hat's off to Kirk's Fly Shop.

“2nd time, as great as the 1st!”
Reviewed 30 May 2012

We went on another 6 hr Fly Fishing trip with Kirk's on March 29th. We specifically requested our guide, Chris, and he was available so we were thrilled! Even though there was still snow in places and some ice on the river we had a great time. Chris is very knowledgeable and I recommend he and Kirk's 100%. We don't get to go a lot but when we do, Kirk's Fly Shop and Chris are the only ones we consider in Estes. My son and I caught another 20 trout this trip even though it was pre-spawn and conditions weren't ideal. You can really not go wrong here, thanks again Kirk's and Chris for another memorable day!

“Outstanding time with excellent fishing with a very knowledgable guide.”
Reviewed 22 May 2012 via mobile

My dad and I had an excellent time and learned many valuable skills from our guide, Luke. Not only did we catch several fish each but we were treated to sites not typically seen in the area. We will definitely be going back!
