    Had a great time out there with these guys! Got all of us on some fish and taught us along the way. My only feedback would be asking us if we wanted to go with quantity or quality, we caught some bigger ones, but would have rather had more action. That being said, still brought some in and could not have asked for a better morning!

    This was my second trip with Ken and the first was excellent... but he still managed to provide us with another fantastic day. I had a novice fly fisherman with me but Ken put us on lots of brown trout, some rainbows and a rare Tiger trout. He is a great guide and I will use him again and highly recommend Ken to anyone of any level who wants to fish in Denver area.

    Our trip with Ken outside of Jefferson, CO was incredible! Ken had every detail covered (including donuts :)) when we arrived river side. The Tarryall Creek was gorgeous and we had a couple mile stretch all to ourselves. Ken is an extremely talented guide who made the experience educational and exciting. Having a trout rise on a dry fly is truly exhilarating!! We highly recommend Ken! On top of the amazing time on the river we were treated to a mouthwatering delicious river side BBQ. The entire day was memorable and we can’t wait to come back and spend a day with Ken and Dan again.
