Kerry CaragharKerry Caragher was born in Colorado where his family has lived since the mid 1800’s. His love affair with fly-fishing began at an early age when he learned to fish on the beaver ponds of Buffalo Creek, CO. near his grandfather’s hotel. Summers spent fishing and storytelling on the hotel porch remain as fond childhood memories. It came as no surprise to Kerry’s parents when he announced his dream of one day becoming a professional fly fisherman. These rich experiences, steeped in Colorado tradition, formed the foundation of Kerry’s passion for fly-fishing for wild trout on all the South Platte drainages–a passion which remains strong today.


Pat Dorsey has been fly-fishing for selective trout for over thirty-five years. His vast knowledge and expertise makes him a true authority in the fly-fishing industry.  Pat Dorsey is one of the co-owners of the Blue Quill Angler, a full-service fly shop and guide service, serving customers from the same location in Evergreen, Colorado since 1988.  Pat has been working at the Blue Quill Angler since 1992.  Throughout his journey, his niche has always been teaching people how to fly fish. Whether you’re a novice or seasoned veteran, a day on the water with Pat Dorsey will elevate your game to the next level.


LandonMayer2014Landon Mayer is fly fishing guide and author in the Florissant, CO area, calling the South Platte River his home waters. He has been guiding on these waters for the past seventeen years, as well as one year in Alaska.  Passion and love for the sport of fly fishing is what motivates Landon. His success in catching trout is fueled by an addiction of pursuing large trout with small flies and lightweight fly-fishing equipment. Landon also displays enthusiasm in teaching and demonstrating his techniques and on-river knowledge to fellow anglers.  Through trial, error and perseverance, he has developed innovative techniques for sighting, hooking, and landing selective trout. He is sharing these techniques and secrets in his books and DVD’s.
