We are a coalition of Rocky Mountain anglers who believe in conservation through recreation. Fly fishing teaches many lessons about the dynamics of the natural world. By enhancing the ability of each angler to catch more fish and maximize their fun on the river, we hope to instill an appreciation for our shared natural resources.


Founded by aquatic ecologists and conservationists, the information found on this page is vetted not only by die-hard anglers but also trained biologists. We try hard to apply our knowledge of rivers, streams, and lakes for the benefit of everyone who enjoys chasing trout. Don't be scared though, our content is helpful to all fly anglers!

Founder: Andy Witt


Andy's passion for fly fishing has developed well beyond your average trout bum. With an MS in Watershed Science and Ecology, he has worked on projects involving cutthroat trout conservation, as well as endangered fish recovery. Most importantly, Andy has been applying his knowledge of aquatic ecology every time he picks up a fly rod, and is a firm believer that fly fishing is just an applied science!








Co-founder: Aubin Douglas


Aub, aka "the fish whisperer," came to fly fishing through education and a love of beautiful places. As a Colorado native, the outdoors have always held a special place in her heart. She now loves tying flies, wet wading, and waking up at 2 am to chase big fish. She holds an MS in Natural Resource Planning and an MS in Ecology & Watershed Science.
