The Blue Quill Angler

Serving Fly Anglers Everywhere
Since 1988

Since 1988, The Blue Quill Angler is recognized as the premier fly fishing guide service and fly shop in the Denver Colorado front range area. Our fly shop and on-line store are fully stocked with the best gear from the best brands in the industry.  Our guide staff is lead by industry veteran, author and co-owner Pat Dorsey, whose knowledge and passion for fly fishing sets the tone for our entire guide staff.  Our focus on providing a quality experience for our customers is shared by all of our staff members, whether they are working in the shop, filling an online order, teaching a person to fly fish for the first time or providing you with the best day on the river they possibly can.

Fully Stocked Fly Shop


Since 1988 The Blue Quill Angler has served the Denver/Evergreen, Colorado fly fishing community through our historical fly shop in Evergreen, Colorado.  Our fly shop is located in an octagonal log barn that is actually a recognized historic landmark.  While we are admittedly biased, it is frankly the coolest fly shop around —  filled to the brim with a wide selection of quality merchandise.
