Jack Bombardier

Speaker:  Jack Bombardier
Topic:  Fishing the Flat Tops
Guest Tier: Vinnie Pachelli

Whatever your favorite type of place to fish, whether it be lake, creek, river or tail water, the eastern Flat Top Mountains have some of the best of it to be found in Colorado! This presentation features beautiful photos and access information for one of west’s most varied (and least-overrun) areas. Jack will also talk about the many uses and advantages he’s learned about tenkara rods, the “newest” ancient way of fly fishing.

Jack lives on the “lower” Upper Colorado River where he floats lucky people down one of the prettiest canyons in the state.  He grew up fishing the hills of western Massachusetts, and honed his skills in the Berkshire and Catskill Mountains.  After moving to Colorado in the mid-eighties, he spent almost twenty years living in Denver and frequently road-tripping to some of the west’s best fishing spots. Now he is living the dream, with the Colorado River and the Flat Top Mountains (literally) in his backyard.

Vinnie Pachelli will be out tier for May. Vinnie is a West Denver favorite. He is associated with Golden River Sports and the Golden Games.
