Colorado is home to some of the best Fly Fishing in the world and we want you to get out there and give it a try with some of the boldest women around!
We'll begin our journey by driving up to Estes Park and checking into our YMCA cabin! This cabin sleeps six and will be a comfy and cozy home base for our weekend adventure! After getting settled, we'll head over the Estes Park Brewery to go over some fly fishing basics with our guides.
NOCO Fly Fishing is a premier fly fishing outfitter from Loveland, CO. They'll have most of the gear we'll need to learn the basics and to gain some confidence out on the water.
Saturday morning, we'll wake up nice and early to meet at the Beaver Meadows Visitor's Center by 7:30am. Here we'll meet back up with the guides and get geared up! We'll drive into the park and once our boots are wet, we'll have 6 hours of guided on the water fishing time in the gorgeous Rocky Mountain National Park.
Saturday evening, we'll stop off for some dinner and to share our fishing stories (the most quintessential part of fishing by far!). We'll have some beers and some dinner and head back to the cabin for a well deserved night of sleep.
Sunday morning, we'll pack up and head back to reality with some amazing pictures to share and some lifelong memories with new friends!
