The Blue Quill Angler is your one-stop shop for all your fly fishing needs, regardless of your skill level or physical location. Since 1988, the Blue Quill has served our loyal clients through our flagship fly shop, our on-line store and guided fly fishing trips lead by the best guides in the country.
Our guided trips can take you places others can’t. Our extensive permits allow us the flexibility to provide you the best day possible, depending on time of year, weather and river conditions. Whether you want an epic float trip on the Colorado River or would rather experience nature and catch large rainbow trout in Cheeseman Canyon on the South Platte River — the Blue Quill has you covered. If huge trout are your goal, then let us take you to Boxwood Gulch – a private ranch that can get you hooked up with trout in the 20”+ range.
We take pride in our guide staff. Our mix of industry veterans, like Pat Dorsey, Bob Dye, John Keefover and Kerry Caragher, have mentored and developed our entire guide staff so that our ability to serve you in the best way possible will continue well into the future.
We also take great pride on our shop staff. They are there to help you with advice on equipment or suggestions on where to fish. Our stores (fly shop and online) are filled with all the best brands in the industry, including SIMMS, SAGE, ORVIS, Patagonia, Ross, Rio, Hatch, Scientific Anglers, Umpqua, and Scott, so we can get you what you need – all in one place. If you can’t make it to the shop, no problem. We ship all purchases over $15 directly to you at no extra charge!
We love to teach. We believe that fly fishing offers something for everyone. Check out our class and seminar schedules and plan to learn something new. We have classes tailored to women and young folks so that they can explore the wonders of fly fishing in a friendly and welcoming environment. To that end, check out the Classes and Education section above and have a look at our online Fly Fishing Learning Center. We plan to keep it filled with useful and relevant information for anglers of all skill levels. We hope you bookmark our website and come back often.
From all of us here at the Blue Quill – a sincere thank you for your business and support!
