Fly of the Month

Financial Freedom and Colorado Living

The Fly of the Month club is a mailed monthly subscription to the best flies and fly-fishing information on the Front Range. It is intended to educate and provide an open invitation to fish with us. The good news is that trout bite all year round in Colorado so it’s important to know your fly pattern, river reports, and technique. Fly of the Month club members are given the information to know when to fish, time of day, and provided the appropriate fly to match the hatch, giving you the upper hand on your adventures on the water. Each month you will receive a new fly with instructions on how to use it and corresponding literature to increase your education and curiosity on fly fishing.

The Fly of the Month Club combines two of our passions because everything we do in life needs to have a purpose; without purpose, life has no meaning. This means doing the things we enjoy with people we enjoy. The Fly of the Month club enables us to combine personalized wealth management and fly fishing! Our intentions are to become well acquainted with our clients, understanding their purpose, all while providing an open invitation to fish. So whether you are a fly-fishing veteran or you’ve never tried fly-fishing before but are ready for some real adventure, let’s get started!
