Chris Thomsen has been a guide in our valley for about 25 years. Like many fly fishing guides who live in seasonal resort areas, Chris wears a lot of hats. Chris has been a wine and spirits rep to area restaurants for the past several years, but he still finds time–mainly Fri-Sundays–to row clients down the Roaring Fork or Colorado Rivers. Because of Chris’ expertise and charisma, he has a loyal following of clients who still come back to fish with him every year, so if you want him, you’ll have to book him with us in advance. His prowess selling wine is just as great as his prowess on the water, because he always seems to win trips to exotic places by being a top salesman. Pictured below is Chris with a massive brown trout he caught on one of those trips to New Zealand.
