This class wouldn't exist without Kerry - he poured his heart into developing a well rounded class that takes the intimidation out of fly fishing.  While Kerry is fighting, we will continue to teach new anglers the ropes! 

Intro to Fly Fishing

The Blue Quill Angler has teamed up with industry leaders Umpqua and Sage, to provide anglers a wide range of educational fly fishing classes to increase their knowledge and skill level. Whether you have never even held a fly-rod, or been fly fishing for years, the Blue Quill Angler has a fly fishing class for you in near the Denver area!

We all live and breathe fly fishing and we are passionate about getting you started on the right track to a lifetime of fly fishing enjoyment. All Blue Quill Angler classes feature rods and reels from Sage, and fully loaded Umpqua packs with leaders, tippet, accessories, and flies for you to use out on the river.

Our Director of our fly fishing classes, Kerry Caraghar, developed  our Introduction to Fly Fishing classes here at the shop based on his extensive background and experience.  With more than 30 years of experience as an Orvis-endorsed guide and instructor, Kerry's knowledge and passion has made our  Introduction to Fly Fishing Classes the gold standard in fly fishing instruction. 

 Every one of our Blue Quill Instructors has been personally trained and mentored by Kerry and are dedicated to continuing the success of our Introduction to Fly Fishing classes.  Unfortunately Kerry is currently taking a leave of absence to deal with his health. Click here for more information on Kerry and his battle with cancer.

Clearwater 905 Outfit

The Clearwater 5-Weight 9' Fly Rod is a standard for western rivers and bigger eastern water. Not only does it have the length to reach out and control drifts and the power to reach far banks, but the line weight to handle big trout and light bass. Firing a big streamer up and across a big river and reaching out to mend the line and control the drift is right in this rod's wheelhouse. Throwing big attractors with droppers, or big hoppers in the early fall is the perfect task for this rod. If big water and big flies are called for, then the Clearwater 905-4 is the weapon of choice at a price that will keep a lot of travel money in your pocket.

The new Clearwater® Rod Series is not just a cosmetic facelift, but a complete overhaul from the ground up by our Vermont rod designers. Everything has changed except the value. It's still the best fly rod you can buy for the money, but with a significant upgrade in performance and looks in a comprehensive series that covers every angler from small stream addicts to Skagit slinging two-handers. Each rod was designed with a purpose-built profile and action to handle the kind of fishing the rod model would be traditionally used for, from medium-action small stream rods to medium-fast freshwater rods and fast-action big game rods.
