What Some of His Clients Have to Say….
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. Theo will often show us a new casting or mending technique 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.

My wife and I have gone on several float and wade trips with Theo. he has so much talent, and a true knack for teaching, and feeling where fish are at any given time. I have had the pleasure of fly fishing 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!
I’ve had some awesome trips on the South Platte, Colorado, Grey Reef and Miracle Mile with Theo. If anyone is looking for an outstanding fishing “Sensei” look up Theo Anest, Colorado Skies Outfitters…it does not get better!!
