“Without question the best fishing in southwest Colorado is on the historic ranches that Jeremy has gained access to. He has a reputation for treating these properties as if they were his own and developed strong relationships with the landowners because of it. He works diligently with each property to make sure the fishing pressure is light and exclusive to his clients, not to mention he’s a heck of a lot of fun to spend the day with! I’ve personally fished all over the state for 20 years and can say that his leases on the Animas and Los Pinos are the most special places I’ve fished. The opportunity for a world class trout is higher there than anywhere else I know of in Colorado.”

– Dave Carrado
