What our customers have to say


This shop seems to have the most knowledgeable guides, on top of the NICEST employees. Other shops in the area might answer your fly fishing questions with a bit of non-interest mixed with pretentiousness but there’s none of that here

Kyle W.

My wife and I had a great time even with the high water we caught a bunch of fish and our guide Jared was fun to hang out with.

Jason P.

Owner and staff are so friendly and knowledgeable. They will take time and go out of their way for any of your questions/concerns. Special thanks to guide Phillip. My husband has taken numerous float trips, in and out of the country. He believes Phillip was one of the best guides he's encountered.

Chris C.

Took an all Womens Casting class with GRFS and they were so great, never made anyone feel stupid, helped each person individually and provided some great help.

Renee M.

In my experience traveling to fly shops, more times then not they are very snooty and rude. My dad and I were nervous to go in just because of past fly shops and we have gone back twice just in the one day we’ve been here! Dave is awesome and very professional!

Zach A.

This is a dedicated fly shop for the Gunnison area. The staff is knowledgeable & willing to give good information. When you walk in take note of the board with the water flows & what the recommendations are for catching that elusive trout.

John R.

I have fished the Gunnison area for a least 10 years and Gunnison River Fly shop has always been my go to resource. Oscar and his staff are the best, everything you will need , what when and where. Thanks for everything

David C.

I always stop in when in the area, helpful staff that will give very good advice on fly fishing the local rivers. They also carry anything you mite need for fly fishing, and offer guided trips.

Peter G.

We had an incredible time on our fly fishing float trip with Gunnison River Fly Shop! From the moment we arrived, our guide Jared went above and beyond to ensure our adventure was nothing short of extraordinary. He had multiple rods set up, allowing us to try our hand at various fishing techniques. Whether we wanted to dry fly, streamer fish, or nymph, Jared had it all and was willing to help the entire trip! We were also able to meet the owner, David, at the shop— he was awesome and very helpful! I highly recommend them for any fly fishing trip in the Gunnison area! Thank you David and Jared!!
