Fishing has been excellent on the North Fork of the South Platte River. Anglers are enjoying some solitude and great fishing at Boxwood Gulch Ranch. It looks promising that Denver Water is gonna leave the Roberts Tunnel on this winter (this is always subject to change) which is good news for everyone! If you are interested in signing up for one of our Winter Classes please use the link below...there are still a open spots. We will add more classes in the weeks to come.
Mike Wickersham is all smiles after landing this 30-inch rainbow at Boxwood Gulch Ranch. Fishing has been excellent with an assortment of midge imitations as of late!
Pat Dorsey’s Fly Club™ is dedicated to bringing members a great selection of seasonably proven trout flies. As a member you have the opportunity to reduce the cost on some of today’s most popular fly patterns, while at the same time receiving home or office delivery with the finest product available. This is an excellent Christmas/birthday gift for any angler you may know (family, friends, employees, and customers).
The flies are tied to be coordinated with hatches during the same time in which you receive them. Included is a short history of the fly, tying recipe, and informative fishing instructions. All of the flies are tied under the supervision of Pat Dorsey and produced by Umpqua Feather Merchants to the exact specifications of the original fly designers.
Pat Dorsey's Fly Club is a great way to fill your fly boxes with proven patterns that consistently fool selective trout.
