I have had the chance to fish across the Country with a lot of guides. Chris is the easiest to get along with and puts you on fish each and every time. A stand up gentlemen to fish with. All guides should strive to be like Chris.
"Been fishing with Chris Galvin as my guide for several years now. I won’t use anyone else; it’s like fishing with buddy that happens to know the creeks and rivers like the back of his hand. He taught me how to fly fish with his patience and is still teaching me new stuff every time I go with him. He tailors each outing for what you are looking for, if it is big fish or just constant action based on your experience level and current conditions. We have never had a bad day fishing and have always caught A LOT of trout. I strongly recommend Chris due to his professionalism, work ethic, and that he will find you fish…"
We spent 3 days with Chris fly fishing around Denver. We caught plenty of amazing trout! Since there were 3 of us fishing, Chris willingly worked very hard to keep all of us engaged and productive. He not only provided the transportation to our fishing destinations, he also provided all the fishing gear that we needed. Chris is a willing and knowledgeable teacher of fly fishing techniques. We learned a Euro nymphing technique that seemed incredible. We would definitely recommend Chris if you want to catch trout on the fly around Denver!
Dropping you a line to tell you how much I enjoyed our time on the South Platte July 5th. It is refreshing to fish with a guide who puts one on the fish and has the success and safety of the client foremost in his mind. Looking forward to doing it again next year. Hope you have a great season.
Terrific day with Chris guiding me on the Clear Creek today. Got into more fish in a few hours that I could on my own in a week. Chris was very knowledgeable and a great teacher.
Wanted to try fly fishing but was somewhat skeptical. We love to fish but we had never used fly rods. Chris and Ed were great instructors with much knowledge and patience! We caught lots of rainbow trout and had a fun time doing it!!
Fit me in on short notice. Took me to great scenic spots and most importantly learned and caught good fish. One of the highlights of my trip for sure.
I've fished with Chris for over 5 years. His trips never disappoint and I always learn something new every time. Chris understands customer service and always provides a first class experience. He is a great teacher, sportsman and a true gentleman.
