Want a memorable fly fishing trip on Colorado's scenic mountain streams and lakes?  Then look no further thanColorado Skies Outfitters in Parker, CO.  Theo Anest, owner and head guide, books guided wading and float trips for Trout on the most famous rivers in the Rocky Mountains as well as for Warm Water species; Large and Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, Tiger Musky, Crappie, Perch and Blue Gill along the Front Range.  AND the High Octane Wiper Bass are sure to get your adrenaline flowing.  Or you can even fish for muscle packed Carp, pound for pound one of the hardest fighting fish in fresh water, on the South Platte within view of downtown Denver.
Easy access to the Blue River, Big Thompson, Colorado River, Eagle River, Roaring Fork and South Platte is reason enough to book your trip.  Colorado Skies Outfitters, through their membership in Rocky Mountain Angling Club, is also pleased to provide access to over 40 Private Pristine waters throughout Colorado and also access to private bass ponds throughout the Front Range.  Rod fees are accessed for Private Water trips and vary according to destination.
If you choose wading or floating the rivers, Theo and his crew of professional guides fish 365 days a year, rain, snow or shine.  There are tailwater fisheries, below the dams, that stay open even in the dead of winter.  If you dress for the weather, winter time can be very rewarding with fewer fishermen and less wary trout.   The guides will put you in the right spot to catch fish, that is, if you don't waste all your time taking in the scenery.   Most rivers in Colorado give you a variety of scenic beauty.  They can run through deep canyons with high mountain hills all around you and then flow out into high altitude plains with breathtaking mountain vistas.  The South Park area has views of many 14,000 foot snow capped peaks (Colorado has more 14ers than any other state).  OH... you paid for a fishing trip?... OK, the rivers are filled with Rainbows, Browns and some Brook and Cutthroat trout.  The mountain lakes and reservoirs have Cutthroats, Browns and Rainbows, Kokanee Salmon and Pike.
The Front Range, east of the foothills, is a high plains dessert.  Denver, the Mile High City, sits at the foot of the Rockies and everything east is plains, slowly sloping toward Kansas.  There are many reservoirs and ponds that Colorado Skies Outfitters can take you to.  They have Bass Boats that can put you in the right spot for fly fishing the Warm Water species.

T. L. Johnson Fly Rods are now available in Blanks

Want to have one of the finest fly rods in the World, but it's price is just a little out of your reach? Build your own!
T. L. Johnson Fly Rods are now available in blanks. The cost is half the finished fly rod price. That's right... You can buy his ($375 finished) Emerger 2 fly rod blanks for $187.50. Even if you use high end compontents, you can build it for under $300. His SLX fly rod blanks sell for $337.50 whereas a finished SLX costs $675. Again, finish it yourself for $450 - $500. The LX, LTS, LL, SL2 and SLP blanks are $337.50 also.
Don't be fooled by who makes their blanks in the U.S. and who doesn't. Unlike other manufacturers, Terry Johnson doesn't put his name on his import line. His Fish Creek fly rods are built overseas to his exacting specifications and are great casting and affordable, but are sold under the Fish Creek brand. If it has the T. L . Johnson name, you know the rods are made entirely in the U.S.A. Terry has his own shop where he builds all the blanks for his T. L. Johnson brand. His patented high-modulus graphite, using exclusive carbon helix uni-directional construction techniques, creates a blank with superior hoop strength as well as improved response. His exclusive ferruling system reduces section to section flat spots, swing weight and has a smoother load transfer. T.L. Johnson’s commitment to the highest quality is apparent in his entire collection.
Purchasing a T.L. Johnson fly rod buys you a certain exclusivity not available with the more popular U.S. brands.
Treat yourself to possibly the BEST fly rods Made in the U.S.A.

The quality of his rods are putting the fly fishing industry on notice. "Build it right or stay home."
This is T.L. Johnson country!
