Welcome to our Commitment to you!

Guiding Anglers for our 4th Decade

Established in 1983, Dragonfly Anglers has been guiding fly fishermen throughout the Gunnison/Crested Butte area before fly fishing was the thing to do. What’s the secret to our 31 years of success? The first and most important piece of this long lasting puzzle is the unending resource and the protection of that resource. The variety of water we have in this valley is beyond belief. After 25 years of guiding myself, I still find water I have not fished. Another factor is choosing the right people to represent your business. The guides here are year-round residents and are committed to achieving satisfaction by seeing the people they guide be successful. They are able to combine all factors on any particular day on the water to give you the best chance for success. Also qualifying for contributing success is the fly shop, which is equally represented by professional individuals and the top fishing products in the industry. When you choose Dragonfly Anglers, you are guaranteed professionalism in every aspect of the business. Thanks for your business for all these years!
