Learn About Winter Fly Fishing with Pat Dorsey & The Blue Quill Angler in Evergreen, CO

The approach of winter can be a time of sadness for some anglers as they consider the season for fly fishing coming to an end. At the Blue Quill Angler, winter is one of our favorite times of the year to fish. It allows us to enjoy some solitude on the water with nothing more than our gear, the fish, and Colorado’s pristine environments. With the right equipment to endure the elements, you can enjoy uncrowded waters and some hungry fish on nearly any winter outing. This winter, we want to help keep your line in the water, so we’ve added The Blue Quill Angler Winter Fly Fishing Clinic to our educational programs. Leading this class is none other than SIMMS Ambassador and Southwest Field Editor for Fly Fisherman Magazine, Pat Dorsey.
