For close to two decades, Robert Younghanz's passion for fly fishing has landed him on 6 continents and over 60 countries. You will often find him stream-side with his faithful Golden Retriever and shop dog, Belikin. Whether casting for rising trout on the South Platte, landing Peacock Bass from a dug-out canoe in the middle of the Amazon, fooling Bonefish on a flat somewhere in the Caribbean, or teasing up Sailfish in the Pacific, his addiction to fly fishing is beyond help. If your idea of a day on the River includes a fun and laid back experience, coupled with learning and tricking a few fish, then he would be honored to spend a day in the Colorado Rockies with you.
Robert’s motto: “Trout live in beautiful places…don’t forget to look around!”
