” Theo has guided myself and friends a number of times, and even though I have fly fished for over 30-years, I always learn something new about flies, rigging, casting or other techniques. He is one of the most knowledgeable fly fisherman I know, is a great teacher and a real joy to fish with. Often Theo will take our fly rod and show us a casting or mending techique first hand and it is amazing. He is an incredible fly caster and makes everthing look so effortless. Winning the Teva fly fishing contest, against some of the best fly fisherman on the planet, is a great accomplishment for Theo and something to be very proud of.”

When I heard that Theo had taken first place at the Teva games, I was really happy for him, but not surprised that he had won. My wife and I have gone on several float and wade trips with him, he has so much talent, I really enjoy just watching him fly fish sometimes. I have seen Theo’s competitiveness in front of his shop with his co-workers, trying to see who can place a small fly over 100+ feet, in a small circle. Of course he won that as well. I have had the pleasure of fly fishing recently with some of the best guides in the industry, and Theo is truly special. His knowledge, skills, and abilities are unmatched. If you are looking for the best guide, my wife Carol and I highly recommend Theo at Colorado Skies Outfitters , you will not regret it!
