The Fifth Season is upon us and we are kicking it off with a education filled day here at Trouts Denver. The weather has been fantastic and spring fishing is here in full force. Whether you're just getting started with the sport of fly fishing or you're looking to tune up your cast and reacquaint yourself with the common bugs that fish eat, we are offering classes to kickstart your season on the water. So, join us for our Fifth Season Kickoff Event on Saturday, April 1st, 2017.
The five FREE classes we are offering throughout the course of the day include two sessions of Orvis 101, a Casting Clinic, Bugs for Beginners, and an Introduction to Carp on the Fly with our very own Rick Mikesell. Availability for all five courses will be LIMITED. As such, make sure to call the shop at (303) 733-1434 to reserve your spot. Check out the course descriptions and schedule below.
